The Most Excellent Way
Pastor Dan Cochrane
Sermon Text: 1 Corinthians 13:1-13
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NIV
Next Week’s Sermon Text: Galatians 6:1-5

Lost and Found Items
Missing anything? Your Bible, your coat, your child’s shoe? Maybe you left it here! Our lost and found is located in the Theatre Entrance foyer. Coats can be found hanging in the main foyer by the Cafe. All left over items will be donated by the end of June.
Phase 4 Update
The next phase planned for our site will consist of an expanded sanctuary, larger foyer, second café, additional office space, and more multipurpose meeting spaces for ministry. The Building Committee is currently conducting a needs assessment with our architect (Axiom) and builder (Timcon) and our user groups, with the hope of having a concept drawing with an estimated budget available for our June Congregation Meeting on June 27th. Originally, we anticipated having a concept drawing and budget before this time so that we could have held a couple of information meetings with the congregation leading up to our June Congregation meeting, where we would decide together concerning the next phase. Instead, we are pushing the decision into the fall to allow for the needs assessment to be completed and presented to the congregation. We will start our conversation together regarding Phase 4 at our June Congregation meeting (Summer Meeting) and carry that conversation into the fall leading up to a special meeting where we will make the decision together. Please be praying for the work being done now to prepare for Phase 4, and that we together would know God’s heart in all these matters concerning the completion of the building. If you have any questions, please email Jordan Polson at JordanP@CrossRoadsChurch.ca.
