This summer, Crossroads will pack up and move where we hold our Sunday services. The Amstelveen College has started building their new school and will move to another location in Amstelveen. Right now, there are two strong contenders for where Crossroads Amsterdam could meet after the summer, each crossing off the most important criteria.
Sustainability, recycling and social involvement are topics which have almost everyone’s interest nowadays. As a church, we want to keep the biblical command to be good stewards and have therefore chosen to deal with these topics in as wise and balanced a way as possible. As Facilities Services, we have looked carefully at how we as a church can function in a more responsible and sustainable manner. We already use Fair Trade coffee and will now start using paper cups.
By popular demand, we are pleased to be able to provide information on the songs that were sung at Crossroads during the Sunday services. Copyright laws prevent us from being able to provide either sound or visual content from the actual services, but we can offer you links to the original songs on YouTube. We aren't able to vouch for the YouTube version being the original or the best arrangement, but it can steer you in the right direction for finding worship resources to use at home.
A lot has happened since the previous update in July so here is a quick review of what we have done, where we are, and where we are heading in the near future.
We set our advertising in motion in early July. By the end of September 200 pastors had applied for our Teaching Pastor position, evidence that Crossroads is viewed far and wide as an attractive place to serve! Needless to say, considering this number of candidates has been an arduous task for our team.
