Janike van Dijk will bring closure to her staff role in the Services Team in 2013. After this, the needs in the Services team will be re-evaluated and we will look to hire someone to replace Janike's hours. Hanneke Zwanenburg of the Kids Church and 10+ has taken temporarily pregnancy- and maternity leave.
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.
Reading the Bible can be one of the most rewarding and refreshing things of our faith experience. But because the words of Scripture have been written thousands of years ago, in another time and culture, it can also be quite a challenge and raise difficult questions, especially when reading the Old Testament. If you would like a better understanding of God's salvation story in the Old Testament, join us as we dig deep into these ancient books of Scripture. During the course of three seminars during the second and third service, once each month, we will examine the big picture of the Old Testament in its ancient Hebrew shape of the Law (Torah), Prophets (Nevi'im), and Ketuvim (Writings)
In his letters to the young churches, the apostle Paul bursts into prayer every now and then. You will find that his prayers are dynamite prayers, praying for the things that are really important for the believers then, but equally important for us now: timeless, informative, brim-full and only including what's really relevant!

The Fundamentals – Living with God (Part 1)
Phillip and Ans Sealey will be leading a new series of Bible Studies/Discipleship Training in the Ministry Centre every other Wednesday evening.

This series consists of seven lessons focusing upon the Fundamentals of our Faith.
You are invited to a special farewell which is being planned for Bill & Eva Hoopes this Sunday, 7 October. We will have a time to prayer for them in the service. Sunday will also offer an opportunity to bring an A4 page with a message and picture for a book we are making for them, we will have and a reception with delicious finger food in one of our gyms as the setting for Bill & Eva to mingle with us as a community. This will be a special occasion to honour them for their precious friendship and faithful ministry here at Crossroads, before they return to the United States. On 14 October they will join us for communion. We hope you'll be able to join us.
On Sunday September 23rd there will NOT be a service in the school building. Service will be outside. Huh? What? Outside? Yes! We will do a project called: “Sunday in the City”, which means serving the city in practical ways with groups of approx. ten volunteers. We would love for the whole church to join, but we need sunny group coordinators for each team of volunteers. Do you want to lead a team, please sign up using this form below.
