September 8th - Oceans September 22 - Visiting the Doctor's Office
The book of Joshua reflects a time of transition within the nation of Israel. It depicts our seasons of uncertainty, obedience, and victory, as well as the freedom we have in Christ. This series will examine how we react to life transitions and encourage us to have courage and not fear. God IS a God of miracles and wants to make himself known and real in our lives. God can set us free from bondage. Pastor Charles will explore how just as God desired to give the nation of Israel victory, he desires to give us victory in our lives today.
Our Grandparents are an incredible source of love and light in our families and our community. To honor the grandparents of our community we are having a special cookie bake-off. Anyone can participate and the judges will be our kid's city kids. Break out those special recipes and cookbooks and see who will win the golden spoon.
Back To Church Sunday Back to church Sunday is a day that we can connect with our Crossroads family and community. We welcome you to invite friends and family to celebrate.
The Transition Team is in the beginning phase of our Transition. The team is currently reviewing the role of pastoral ministry at Crossroads to identify the gifts and needs for our transition Pastor. Once this work is completed, the Transition Team will make a recommendation to the church board for approved candidates by the Office of the Bishop. The Transition Team will provide monthly updates to the Church Board and congregation.
