Upcoming Worship Information

One Service Summer Schedule

Our worship committee has heard Crossroads members like to worship together occasionally on holiday Sundays. So we thought we could try something new: a Short Summer Schedule beginning with the Memorial Day holiday. This schedule will bring our two worshipping congregations closer together for a short time this calendar year. Also with the Godspell Musical taking one Sunday, this is really on effecting four Sundays. So beginning May 24th thru July 5th we will have one 10:00am worship service with Sunday School starting at 9:00am. Worship will still have a choir and a variety of music from many styles. Join us for this new Summer Worship Schedule.
