Weekly Update Bulletin
WELCOME TO THE ONLINE BULLETIN OF CROSSROADS!
HAVE A CUP ON US - Good morning! When you arrive at CrossRoads on Sundays for worship, we invite you to enjoy a hot beverage on us - check out our coffee bar or the drinks station located at the back of the lobby. Then, bring your cup into the worship space with you for the service. It's fine....really!
WANT MORE INFO about activities of our church? Have a prayer need? Interested in serving? Need to update your information? Fill out a Connect Card (located in the seat-back pockets of the chairs in the worship space) and put it in the offering plate during worship or place it on the counter outside the church office. Feel free to stop by the Welcome Center in the lobby and someone there will be glad to answer any questions.
FOR PARENTS - Children are always welcome to remain in worship on Sunday mornings with their parents, or they may prefer to go to KidZone. KidZone is a fun place for preschoolers and elementary students to learn about God during the regular worship service time. Preschoolers and elementary students are asked to stay for the first part of worship and go with their teachers when invited to do so by the worship leader. Adult-supervised care is available for infants and young toddlers during the entire worship time.
At CrossRoads, we use the Orange approach to ministry with our kids that focuses on teaching Christian values based upon a new and creative theme each month. See whatisorange.org to understand our strategy.
UPCOMING EVENTS AND THINGS TO KNOW --
STUDENT MINISTRY XP3 meets on Sunday nights at the CrossRoads Center from 5- 7 pm for all 5-12 graders. Some Sundays we attend special events or serve locally the under-resourced. Be sure to check the CrossRoads calendar to keep up-to-date on what youth events are coming up soon! We also use an Orange strategy with our youth ministry that focusses on helping parents and the church work together to grow our kids for Jesus Christ. (whatisorange.org)
CARABELLO COFFEE - Due to the generosity of a CrossRoads' family, we will be serving Carabello Coffee at all CrossRoads events from now on! While you are enjoying your coffee, this Fair-Trade coffee supports families in Nicaragua.
Want even more of this delicious brew? You can place an order with us on the first Sunday of every month and we will have it to you on the following Sunday (this will allow you to save on shipping costs!). For more information, check out the Carabello's website.
DO SOMETHING NOW - is CrossRoads' way of impacting the under-resourced in our world. Recently we partnered with Timmy Global Health to provide vitamins for people in rural villages in Ecuador. Now we are collecting Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes for distribution through Samaritan's Purse.

TUESDAY REWIND - Every Tuesday night come join us for a lively discussion about the message from the past Sunday. 7-8:30 PM at the CrossRoads building.
MEN'S BIBLE STUDY - The Monday morning men's group meets every Monday morning at 7 am at Chick-fil-A in Westfield. They are studying the book of Romans.
