In light of the new limitations for in-person worship gatherings, CrossRoads is moving Sunday services to online only until further notice. If you haven't seen Jordan Polson's message in response to the new guidelines, we encourage you to watch it here -- God is definitely still at work!
We are excited to welcome five speakers for our Sunday messages in May. This Sunday, May 16, join Pastor Denise Snyder for her message, "Bind Us Together". Pastor Denise is brimming with biblical wisdom, and we look forward to her sharing some of that wisdom with us!
Below is the full schedule of upcoming speakers:
Denise Snyder - "Bind Us Together" - May 16th
Jeff Goudy - May 23rd
Kelly Sikstrom - May 30th
Previous messages linked here, if you missed them:
Julie Cavanaugh - "Parable of the Littles" - May 2nd
Jordan Cavanaugh - "Interrupted" - May 9th
If you aren't already connected to a community group, life group, or bible study we encourage you to take a look at our Groups catalogue found through our groups page! It's that time where a few new groups are kicking off for spring and many that have been continuing are still welcoming new faces. This is a great to way to find community and stay connected in a church our size and through these unconventional, socially-distanced times.
Did you know that at CrossRoads we accept donations of items to help with school breakfast programs and food hampers for families in our community? These requests often come through school social workers because of the doors God has opened for relationship with both Catholic and Public schools in our community. Often these families are already accessing the food bank and need a bit of a top up or a few extra things to get them through the next month.
If you are able, we are now accepting food donations here at the church. Drop-offs can be made at our donation bins in the Cafe.
If you are on the path of recovery after separation or divorce, we welcome you to DivorceCare. This support group is a safe place where caring people come alongside you and encourage you on the path of healing from the pain of separation or divorce. Featured in this group program, you’ll find helpful counsel to manage the emotional turmoil as well as practical tools for decision-making.
Meet together weekly at CrossRoads, Mondays at 7pm. Register to join us through the groups catalogue.
*Please note that this group is of limited size to ensure confidentiality & connection.
At this time, GriefShare has decided to pause the ministry and looks forward to a possible restart in late summer/early fall. If you have questions, concerns, or are interested in joining once it starts back up, please contact the Team Lead, Derek at email@example.com.
One of our missionary families from Papua New Guinea is on furlough from June - Sept 2021. They are a family of 4 and in possible need of a house and car. We think it would be ideal for them to have their own space (a house or apt) because of the required 2 week quarantine once they arrive back in Canada. Because of the logistics of travelling during this season, an arrival date has not yet been confirmed. If you know that you may have a space or vehicle available for this family, please contact KarenM@CrossRoadsChurch.ca.
Michele Ramer has been on staff for over seven years here at CrossRoads and will be moving on from staff in the next couple months as her and her husband relocate to another city. We are sad to see her go, but are excited for the new opportunities this move presents them! We will be hiring to replace her role as the Executive Assistant.
We are adding to our CrossRoads Team! Currently, there are two job opportunities:
- Pastor of K-6 Families
