Online Worship 10:30 this morning! (Sunday, April 5th)

You’re invited for online worship at 10:30 this morning! (April 5, 2020)

Hope you can make it to worship Sunday morning at 10:30!

Hope your family is healthy and doing well this week. It’s still crazy living in this COVID-19 world.

Here’s the plan:

This week’s sermon will premiere on our YouTube channel at 10:30 am. This link will take you straight there. The premiere will allow us to share some simple communication as we watch the message together.
Here’s the sermon link:

Because people find YouTube videos based on likes and subscribers, it would be very helpful if you would take a second to give this video a thumbs up and subscribe to our channel!

Please, take a moment to let us know you are here by completing this google form:

I have created a playlist with three music videos to sing along with or put you in a worshipful frame of mind and the sermon. If you begin this playlist about 10:10, you will be ready for the sermon a few short minutes before it premiers:

Here are a few other resources I have prepared for you and your children:

You are invited to join us for a Zoom teleconference during worship and for communion.

Because people have begun to use Zoom to do bad things, we will no longer publicly display our Zoom link or meeting ID on the website. If you did not receive our email with the Zoom link, please send a note to, and I will send a link to let you join in. I will also sign you up to receive future email updates.

You can prepare by downloading Zoom at or on your mobile device through the App Store or Google Play Store. It’s available for PC, Mac, tablet or phone. If you are at the store today, you may want to pick up communion elements. (Personally, I like to pick up matzah bread and grape juice. What’s important is the death and resurrection of Jesus the elements point to not the elements themselves. So, in this time of crisis, feel free to substitute something similar.)

Thank you so much for your participation. I look forward to seeing you this morning.

Let me know if you have any questions. I sure don’t want anyone to miss out on worshipping with us!
See you (online) Sunday!

I woke up at 1:30 this morning…

Sorry if it looks like I’m trying too hard to smile. It was 2 am.

I woke up at 1:30 this morning and couldn’t go back to sleep!

I woke up at 1:30 this morning and couldn’t go back to sleep because I had a crazy idea running around my head. So, I thought I would try doing what people do these days, and I launched a YouTube Live Stream.

I just kept thinking: “What if God is using COVID-19 to do even bigger things than we have been doing before? What if we can be even better disciple-makers locked up in our houses?”

Please, take a few minutes to watch the video. Then, help me out with 3 simple things.

I need your help with 3 simple things:

  1. Pray. Ask God to show us how to do even bigger things for his kingdom right now than we have ever done before!
  2. Let me know which live social media platforms and video conferencing tools you are most familiar with
  3. Keep your eyes open for email from me about our next steps. (If I don’t have your email, please send it to This week is going to be very fluid and move fast, and I need to be able to communicate with our CrossRoads folks via email. (I know it’s not very cool, but it’s the most reliable way to communicate with everyone across all our demographics.)

Thanks for your help as we prayerfully ask God to help us understand how to become a better disciple-making church through this crisis!
