The Way

Grace of Giving (Part 2)

The "People of The Way" series wraps up this Sunday, June 16. Pastor Dan Cochrane will be reading from 2 Corinthians 9, discussing how God's faithfulness will provide everything we need. Because of God's generosity to us, we should also show generosity to others.

Everyone is welcome to worship together this Sunday at 9am, 11am, and 6pm. Wherever you are in your faith journey, our prayer is that you will experience God's presence at CrossRoads, and be blessed as we aspire to be People of The Way.

Ministry Reports

Encouraging Ministry Reports

We're excited to announce that our new Ministry Reports are now available! Discover how God has been at work in our church and community over the past year. Pastor Dan provides a special video introduction to the reports, which is well worth a watch! You can read the reports online by visiting crossroadschurch.ca/ministryreports. For those who prefer a hard copy, they will be available at the HUB on Sundays. Read the stories, see the impact, pray for our ministries and be inspired!

Beyond

God is So Faithful!

We are thrilled to announce that, through God’s faithfulness and your incredible generosity, our special offering from June 2nd is now over $600,000 and the contributions are still coming in! Together let's praise the Lord for this miracle!

And we want to extend our heartfelt thanks to you for answering God's call to be part of His story here at CrossRoads. Your sacrifice is making a significant impact, and we are excited to see how these funds will further God's work here in Central Alberta and around the world.

For those who want to learn more about what BEYOND means and how you can continue to be a part of this inspiring journey, please visit crossroadschurch.ca/beyond. There, you will find uplifting stories, important statistics, and more ways to get involved.

Baptism

Considering Baptism?

At CrossRoads Church, we believe that baptism is a step of obedience for those who follow Jesus. It is a way for us to publicly declare that we acknowledge Jesus as Lord and are committing our lives to walking in His way. We would be thrilled to help you take this important step in your faith journey!

The next baptism service is on Sunday, July 7th at the Outdoor Service (11am). If you are thinking about taking this important step in following Jesus, please fill out the baptism form at crossroadschurch.ca/baptism and we will be in contact with you to set up an interview.

We are excited to have you join us on Sunday, July 7th, for a time of worship, baptisms and fellowship under God's glorious sky! All are welcome to stay for a free hotdog lunch following the service. We encourage you to bring chairs, family games, and enjoy some time afterwards visiting and connecting. Be sure to dress for the weather and bring items as needed such as sunscreen, umbrellas, blankets, etc. If weather does not cooperate, we will move the service inside. The Outdoor Service will start at 11:00am but we recommend to come early to minimize traffic and ensure you get a good spot to sit on the field.

Prayer

How Can We Pray For You?

Following each service, prayer team members are ready to pray with you. If you join us in person, prayer is available in the Sanctuary. If you're watching online, let us know your prayer request by sharing it here. Someone will then follow-up with you to pray together.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." - Philippians 4:6
