Winter Quarter Adult Sunday School Classes Offered

The winter quarter for the Sunday School calendar will begin on December 6, 2009. We are offering these 3 classes for adults this quarter:

"Systematic Theology" led by Pastor Todd Jaussen will continue. This is a deep look at the doctrines of our faith. This quarter will focus on the Doctrine of the Trinity and Salvation. Anyone can join the class at any time. Here is a link to a preview of the book that is being used: Systematic Theology: An Introduction to Biblical Doctrine by Wayne A. Grudem.

"A Powerful Prayer Life" will be a discussion of the book How to Develop a Powerful Prayer Life: The Biblical Path to Holiness and Relationship with God by Gregory Frizzell. Prayer is probably the most important thing we can do on our own in our Christian life. Pete Keeley will be leading this class.

"About My Father's Business - Biblical Business Management" will be taught by Lee Earnhardt. This class will examine the Bible to understand what God has said about taking our faith to the marketplace and honoring God in the midst of the world. We will look at our calling as Christians in the workplace, and how we can apply Scripture in living out our faith. There will be teaching, discussion, and sharing so we can learn from the Bible and one another's experience.

Christmas caroling is being planned for Saturday afternoon December 12, 2009. We will leave from Crossroads at 1:00 pm and head to the local nursing homes and Greenville House. Please sign up if you want to go. Refreshments will be provided upon returning to the church. The more voices the better.

Holiday Plans from The Good Shepherd Center (UPDATED)

The Good Shepherd Center's holiday plans are underway, and our church has been asked to provide 125 canned yams/sweet potatoes or vegetables for their Thanksgiving baskets. Please drop your food donations off at the church office by Sunday November 15, 2009 so we can keep them separate from other donations to the Center.

UPDATE: A special thank you to all those who helped meet and exceed our quota for the Thanksgiving basket program.

Operation Christmas Child to Start (UPDATED)

It's time for Operation Christmas Child to begin. The shoe boxes will be available on Sunday October 18, 2009. This annual mission is a blessing to both the box-fillers and the receivers.

UPDATE: 100 shoe boxes are now available. Each box contains a pamphlet that helps you select appropriate items for the child. The filled boxes must be returned to the church by Sunday November 15, 2009 in order to get them to the next point in the distribution chain.

This program is a great opportunity to share the gospel and the joy of Christmas with those that may never otherwise hear of Jesus Christ.

UPDATE: The Missions Committee would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all who participated in Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child. A total of 109 boxes are being sent all over the world from Crossroads and in each one will be a message of the "Love of our Savior".

New Sunday Evening Study Series to Start in November (UPDATED)

A new series from Pastor Todd Jaussen will begin on Sunday November 8, 2009 for the Evening Bible Study program. This 6 week program will address the question: "How can I be sure I am a Christian?".

If this is a question you are wrestling with in your life then please plan to join us as we hear and study words of assurance from the Bible.

The Sunday evening Bible Studies take place from 6-7:00 pm each week.

UPDATE: Due to a prior postponement and a special upcoming Sunday evening event, this new Bible Study series will now begin on Sunday November 22, 2009 at 6:00 pm.

UPDATE: How can I know...really know, with assurance, that I am truly saved and WILL go to heaven when I die? That question has no doubt concerned you and passed through your mind on many occasions. At least it should have! Starting on Sunday November 22, 2009 our evening Bible Study will address this issue with a study of the Assurance of Salvation. Come to explore this vital topic and find the joy, security, and boldness that comes when both facing life and death that results when one has such assurance.

Thank You Veterans!

On this Veterans Day -- Wednesday November 11, 2009 -- make a special effort to thank a man or woman who has bravely served our country in any branch of the military: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, or Coast Guard. Without them, whether in peacetime or war and on the homefront or abroad, the freedoms we cherish and enjoy would certainly be in jeopardy. They have gallantly stood in the way of oppression, tyranny, and injustice. Every single American freedom, and many more worldwide, is mixed with their blood, sweat, and tears.

We especially want to acknowledge and honor all veterans in our congregation for their service, upholding freedom for all!

To the Veterans: We owe you so much because you gave us so much. Our humble thanks is woefully inadequate.

Ladies Aid Christmas Dinner

The Ladies Aid Christmas Dinner is being planned for Thursday December 3, 2009 at 11:30 am at Rosie’s Restaurant in Jamestown. All Ladies Aid members and social members are invited. Ordering will be off the menu and all dinners will be paid for by Ladies Aid. Please notify Lu Bogacki if you are able to attend.
