In part 7 of this series, In the Public Square, Pastor Dan continues with Acts 1:8. You are invited to join us LIVE from the sanctuary in-person or online. And we encourage you to invite your friends and family to hear this word with you!
If you would like to join us in-person, register at CrossRoadsChurch.ca/Attend. Or join us online at CrossRoadsChurch.ca/Watch Facebook at 9am or 11am. Not able to join us in the morning? You can find it on Facebook or our website anytime after the 11am service!
You can find some great tools and resources to use on your missional journey at CrossroadsChurch.ca/SeriesResources.
We invite you to check out CrossRoadsChurch.ca/Baptism to discover more about baptism. If you’d like to be baptized, please let us know by filling out our registration form. We look forward to chatting with you and learning more about your faith story!
Our next baptism service will be on November 15th at 9AM and 11AM.
We are stationed, not stuck! So where are you stationed?
We want to hear from you! Take a quick video at your school or a picture in your office or wherever you have been sent. We encourage you to share your story of where and how you are being missional by tagging the church and #iamsent on social media or by emailing us at Communications@CrossRoadsChurch.ca.
Though the Bible contains thousands of verses and hundreds of truths, there are two main themes that flow through from Genesis to Revelations and on into your own life. The first is the Finished Work of Christ (Redemption) and the second is the Unfinished Work of Christ (God’s Mission through His Church) - the opportunity for all people to have a personal relationship with Jesus.
Join Pastor Tracy online for four evenings as we follow this thread through the Old Testament into the New Testament, and explore what that means to us as we put our feet onto the floor each morning as we are Sent! To join us, register for “The Unfinished Story” at CrossRoadsChurch.ca/Registration.
We are excited that our women’s conference will now be October 30-31, 2020.
Registration to join us in-person is full, however, we invite you to JOIN US ONLINE for a 2-day event as we discover God’s Word. We will talk about the beauty of God’s connected story throughout the Bible, and as we do, we’ll look at practical ways we can better understand what we’re reading, how it all fits together, and what it looks like for us and our families to be ROOTED in God’s Word.
To register, visit CrossRoadsChurch.ca/Registration. The cost to join this event online is $10. And please note, the online link will be emailed to you closer to the event. If you are unable to join us LIVE, we will be archiving the online streaming so it is available to watch at any time.Categories: Women

We are in a day and time when sickness and cancer surround us, and depression and anxiety are on the rise. But we believe in the healing power of Jesus and know He loves it when we bring these things before him!
CrossRoads Church and Burn24-7 encourage you to join us for an all-day continuous time of worship and prayer to ask for physical, mental, or emotional healing. Whether you come to pray for yourself, a family member, or a friend, we want to stand together as a church body to be a ‘house of prayer’ (Matthew 21:13).
Drop in the Chapel on October 28th anytime between 10am - 10pm to pray on your own or have someone from the prayer team pray with you.
“Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.” (Psalm 103:2)
*Please note, COVID recommendations will be followed.
If you’re thinking about doing a little winter cleaning (kind of like spring cleaning but the winter version) and find you’ve got a collection of books on those shelves, we know just the place for them! Our local partner, The Mustard Seed, is now accepting book donations to be enjoyed by those in our community.
We encourage you to take your no-longer-needed books directly to the Seed at:
6002 54 Ave, Red Deer
Thank you for supporting our local partner!
GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. This group meets weekly and is of a limited size to ensure confidentiality & connection. If you are interested in attending GriefShare, please either register on the Groups page, or simply come.
Griefshare will run Tuesdays at 7pm in Room 108 from Oct 13th, 2020 through Jan 5th, 2021. For more information please visit Griefshare.org or contact Derek at 403-896-8946.
In support of our local partners and schools, we are grateful to, again, accept donations of food and gently-used clothing at CrossRoads. As you can imagine, this is of extra importance at this time of year with our Alberta winter coming soon. And we know that many children and youth are going without winter gear. As well, we saw the need for non-perishable food items during our Food Initiative - this is still very prevalent.
These items will be distributed to families in need within our community through school social workers and our partner agencies. Donations bins will be set up in the Cafe. If you would like further information, please contact LaurieW@CrossRoadsChurch.ca.
Did you know that CrossRoads is a drop off location for packed shoeboxes in all of Central Alberta? We are! And we are here to let you know that shoebox season has begun! You can now find boxes to pack and other information in the CrossRoads Church Foyer.
Packing Shoeboxes changes LIVES....
Simple gifts packed with LOVE.
The shoeboxes are given out by local Christians in each country to bless children. The unexpected gift delights and sparks hope in the life of a child as they hear about Jesus’ love for them. To participate, you can pick up your boxes in the church foyer and return them when filled. Or, you can pack one online! Visit, Samaritan’spurse.ca/donateabox.
Each of us has hurts. To learn how to navigate the hurts, hang-ups, and habits, join us Friday evenings at 7pm. For more information visit CrossRoadsChurch.ca/CelebrateRecovery.Categories: Hope
