As many of you already know, this summer Crossroads will be moving to a new building. Our current location in Amsterdam College is being knocked down and we will be joining the school in moving to some impressive new premises. It’s a short move one block north… From Startbaan to Sportlaan!
At Pentecost we started a new teaching series called ‘Church on the move’. We are moving this summer (crossing the road together) to a new building, bringing lots of exiting change, but church is so more than where we meet and what happens on Sundays.
The book of Acts is a great place to get an idea of what church is and can be. Pentecost is where it starts. It’s an inside-out movement. Filled with the Sprit the church begins to move.
At its heart, membership is an opportunity to say ‘Yes’ to what God is doing through Crossroads church. It is a means by which we can say ‘this is my spiritual home’ and can move from being passive consumers of Crossroads' ministries to being active participants in church-building. That's why we organize Membership seminars. The next two-session seminar will held on two Wednesday evenings: 19 June and 3 July.
Jesus is a Master storyteller. Most of his teachings come to us through stories or parables. Most of Jesus’ parables are short, simple and straightforward. Some, however, are longer and shatter our expectations; they end with a twist.
In this 5-week teaching series we will look at some of these surprising stories in Luke’s Gospel to discover more about the person of Jesus and his amazing grace towards us.
Crossroads Is ... Crossing The Road!
After providing us with many years of loyal service – and being home to countless great services – Amstelveen College is closing its doors forever this summer. That means the time has come for Crossroads to seek a new home to meet on Sundays…. And we have found just the right place!
Every third Sunday of the month we are doing a Food Collection for the Voedselbank in Amstelveen. We have yellow bags available with a shopping list printed on them. Make sure to take one with you as you leave the service. You can use the list on the bag as a guideline to buy what you can to donate to people in need.
Volunteers Needed For Multimedia
We seek to enhance worship through visual senses. The multimedia team is responsible for displaying the pre-delivered song texts, videos and messages during the Sunday services.
If you have basic computer skills, a willing heart to serve, and can commit once every 4-6 weeks, please e-mail us!

Attention all Spanish-speaking people in Crossroads! There are plans to start a LIFEgroup in Spanish, to give people the opportunity to study the Bible in their mother tongue and share experiences of daily life in Holland.
