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.
We will do monthly Food Collection for the " Voedselbank" and we will start of from the 19th of August.
As you may know we have done food collections for the food bank several times within our community the last couple of years with a great result. The community shopped like crazy and donated food items for people that need to go to the food bank for food every week.
You can imagine life is hard for these people and that they are really ashamed that they have to go to the food bank.
Start the new season of Children's Church & 10+ with another great Dad-Kid Camp weekend. Kids ages 7 – 12 and their dads can join us in Zeist on September 7 – 9, 2012. At camp we will get to know God and each other a lot better. We're looking forward to having a great time together singing, praying, playing games and other activities. Children without a dad, or whose dad is unable to join us, can join another dad and his kids for the weekend. Feel free to invite your friends and their dads as well. This camp is for everyone!
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.
Crossroads wants to focus more on reaching out to people outside of our community. We'd like to invite you to think with us about ways we could serve. So please join this brainstorm on the 15th of July at 12:30, with lunch!
How we can make a difference in the people we encounter in our daily lives? In our LIFEgroups? In our community? In our city? How can we combine our talents, creativity and our brains to meet the needs around us?
Unfortunately we did not have enough sign ups for the outreach to Moldova this year. We had to have a group of people that had decided before june 15th, so we decided to see what we can do next summer in 2013. Meanwhile we are looking for opportunities to go out in the "herfstvakantie" in October. We will keep you updated!
