Church Life Update :: June 25, 2020 Here are the latest updates in the life of Crossroads Church, straight from the mouths of Pastor Ryan and Pastor Katie: Celebration Big news, and it’s good news! Dennis Anderson, our pastor of MInistry Development, will be taking a much-needed sabbatical after 42 years of active ministry. The sabbatical will run from July 1 – September 30. Dennis and Barbara will be going to Salida to be near family, where Dennis will take time to rest and refill before he comes back at 75% of full time. In Dennis’ absence, Rod Kaya will step in to oversee Group life alongside Perry Creede, who will work with our Peacemaking partnerships; Isaac Bartholomew will oversee Guest Services. Reopening Taft Ave. New Outdoor Service Coming July 19 In light of the recent surge in Covid-19 cases around the country, we have decided to pause the plan for re-gathering INSIDE the building July 9. Instead, we are launching an outdoor service option, beginning Sunday July 19. Plus, the Thursday/Sunday LiveCast and the KidsCast will continue livestream and on demand. Tune in to the FramilyCast this Sunday; and watch your inbox for the latest news about the new outdoor service option. Financial Update We are constantly reminded of the importance of the work we are doing here at Crossroads, and that we are making a difference in people’s lives throughout Northern Colorado and beyond. This is only possible through the continued financial support of our Crossroads framily. Thank you for being a generous church! Automated giving is an easy way to continue the practice of generosity throughout the unpredictable summer months. Giving envelopes are another great option for streamlined giving. May was a tough month financially, but that’s okay; we trust that God was in the middle of it. We have seen a lot of generosity through June. We are living below our budget and we are trying to make the most effective use of the resources we have been called to steward. That’s it! You made it to the end! We’re moving our Church Life Updates to the final Thursday of the month, so tune in again on July 30 at 8:00 p.m.
