[Updated Wednesday, March 18, 11:30 AM]

Hello Crossroads Family,
We wanted to update you on how we will be gathering online over the next week. In a time when we naturally want to draw together, we feel the tension of being told to stay apart. So to create shared space, we will be having a short live stream service Wednesday, March 18, at 6:30 PM. Please join us live for a time of encouragement, worship, and prayer together.

On Sunday morning we will be gathering online only at 10:30 AM. We are working on ways to hear from you during service, so tune in live online and be ready to participate.

As a church, we have been reading through the gospel of Matthew. We would encourage you to join with us now and follow along as we post thoughts and interactions daily on Facebook and Instagram.

We know this is a unique time in our lives, but we want to encourage you to stay connected. Although we are not gathering in a building, we are the church, and there is an opportunity for us to practice joy, practice peace, and to cultivate the good of the Kingdom in our neighborhoods. We are in this together!

Grace + Peace,
The Pastors of Crossroads

“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.” Isaiah 26:3-4

Overview

Sunday Services:

For now, we will not be gathering in a large group on Sundays. Instead of our larger gatherings, we will provide a time of teaching and worship via live stream. We would encourage you to watch this together with your family, friends, or community group.

Midweek Gatherings:

Our midweek service will be held via live stream. Join us Wednesdays at 6:30 PM. Small groups (such as Men’s and Women’s Bible studies) are on pause.

Giving:

During our services, we provide an opportunity for giving as an act of worship. If you would like to continue giving, you can do so online. If you need help with this or have questions, please contact us.

Duration of Changes:

The changes to our scheduled gatherings will remain in effect until the situation and recommendations change in one direction or another. We will do our best to keep you informed and updated. Again, you can subscribe to our emails, check our website, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

Questions or Concerns:

In times of uncertainty, it’s easy to become anxious. We want to assure you that we are available should you need to talk, receive prayer, or have any questions.

We also want to encourage you that in this season we have the unique opportunity to be people of peace. We have a God who is in control, who knows us, loves us, and cares deeply for us

In light of the current health concerns, here are some ways each of us can help stop the spread of the virus:

  • If you don’t feel comfortable with a handshake, hug, or a high five, simply greet one another with a warm smile and a hello.
  • If you are sick or not feeling well, please stay home. Take care of yourself. You can stay connected by joining the live stream or watching a service once they are posted online.
  • Washing your hands is the most important and helpful thing you can do to protect yourself and others! Wash with soap and water for at least 20-30 seconds (about the amount of time it takes to sing Happy Birthday). If you attend in person and sneeze or cough, please cover your cough with a handkerchief or tissue and be sure to wash your hands. Again, this is the most important and helpful thing you can do to protect against the spread of the virus.
  • If you are in a high-risk group, please stay home and stay healthy. Current evidence indicates that the risk of severe illness increases with age. People with underlying medical problems, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, chronic lung disease, and immunosuppression, are also likely at higher risk.
