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.
Galatians 1:12 says, “I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.” We can learn a lot about the Bible from godly preachers. Along with listening to these godly preachers we should also study the Bible for ourselves and allow the Holy Spirit to teach us. When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior the Holy Spirit enters into us. 1 Corinthians 3:16 says, “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”
The Holy Spirit will teach us what we need to know and He will help us to understand it. He will also help us to know how to use what we have learned. Jesus said in John 14:26, “But the helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said.” But for Him to teach us we have to want to learn it. 2 Corinthians 5:20 tells us that “we are ambassadors for Christ.” Being an ambassador for Christ means that we are His representatives in everything we do, in everything we say, and in every way that we act. This will take sacrifice on our part. But if we take time to read His word, and pray for understanding and act the way God wants us to, just think what we could do for God’s kingdom.
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.
