We will worship again in person on June 7. Please take time to read the guidelines that we have provided, so that we may have a safe reopening. Our fellowship has been greatly missed and we are looking forward to worshipping together once again.
While there may be a difference of opinions, the church leadership is asking that everyone follow the guidelines in the best interest of the church and out of respect for your church leaders.
We are using the governor's recommendations regarding places of worship. If you would like to read those, there is a link below.
Should I feel obligated to attend church service?
No. At this time the governor still recommends worshipping virtually so don't feel obligated or disobedient if you chose to remain at home. We will continue to have the service available online.
Who should NOT attend?
While we would love for everyone to attend, the current recommendations of those that should not attend are the vulnerable populations, those who are sick, and anyone that has been recently exposed to Covid-19.
What is Sunday morning going to look like when we resume services?
How will I know where to sit without coming into contact with another person or family?
All members of your family are asked to sit together. We are currently working on how spacing will work between family groups so that we can maintain a 6ft distance. Someone will be here to help with seating you and your family.
How will offering be handled?
Offering plates will be located on the offering table, at the back of the sanctuary, and at the door leading to the parking lot for people to drop their tithe in to without coming in contact with others or passing plates.
How will we dismiss without coming into contact with one another?
We will dismiss by rows. We ask you to be patient and understanding as we stagger our dismissal.
Will there be Sunday night and Wednesday night services?
No. We will only have Sunday morning worship when we reopen. Other activities will continue to be evaluated regularly.
We will continue to update these guidelines as we finalize our reopening plans.
There is a quote that reads, “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift from God, that is why it is called the present.” While we need to plan for our future, we shouldn’t get so overwhelmed with it that we forget about what God wants from us day to day. In Matthew 5:11 Jesus tells us in His model prayer to pray for our daily bread. Jesus also tells us in Matthew 6:34, “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” It’s been said that planning for tomorrow is time well spent, but worrying about tomorrow is time wasted.
Isaiah 14:24 says, “The Lord Almighty has sworn, surely as I have planned, so it will be, and as I have purposed, so it will stand.” God has a plan and a purpose for us. If we seek His guidance, follow His plan and allow Him to have control of our lives there would be no need to worry about tomorrow. Psalm 118:24 says, “This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” We need to stop worrying about tomorrow and be glad and thankful for what God has given us today.
I would like to personally invite you to Crossroads Baptist Church. You will find our church to be a place where life-long friendships can be cultivated. Crossroads is an environment where you can love God, connect with people, and be empowered for ministry and service.
