We continue to work out various bugs and also will try to recover suitable recordings from the missing presentations. We hope to be able to post the most recent events shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Experiencing Problems with Sermon Audio Files (UPDATED)

Our host -- Blogger -- for the sermon and Bible study posting archive seems to have made an unknown change that prevents our streaming audio script to work. Clicking on the file link launches the player window, but the file player will not load or begin playing. We are aware there is a problem and are looking into a solution.

As a workaround, the audio files can still be downloaded to your computer or device and then listened to using a standard mp3 media player. To start the download process, right-click on the sermon file link and then choose the option that includes Save As on the pop-up menu. Depending on your browser settings you may be asked to select a location for the file or it may be automatically placed in your default downloads folder.

Thank you for your patience.

Update: This issue has been successfully corrected! Google unexpectedly and without notification recently stopped supporting an audio player that was embedded into the site. Another audio player has been substituted.

Note that most browsers cache or store support files from previous visits to a website and a hard refresh may be needed to clear the cache and direct the link to the corrected tool.

    Mobile Version of Website Launched

    Do you have a smartphone, IPad, IPhone, Kindle Fire, or Nook and want to visit our website from your mobile device? We have been developing a mobile-friendly version of the Crossroads website and it is now ready for testing. We are looking for feedback on how the mobile site works on various devices.

    The mobile site address is: www.crossroadschristianfellowship.org/mobile.


    We still provide audio sermons for listening and study, news and announcements, events calendar information, contact data, and other useful tools; just that they are presented in a mobile-friendly format. This mobile site is purposely leaner than our full site. Please feel free to utilize what we have prepared and also to suggest other tools or information through the Contacts page.

    Two Missions Teams Gearing Up

    During January 2012 two separate teams from Crossroads will be heading to the mission field.
    • One team will be returning to the Dominican Republic January 14-21, 2012 to continue work as done in previous years. This team will consist of Paul Sereda, Dave Campbell, Jeanne Bell, Lee Earnhardt, Abe Johnson, Todd Jaussen, Dan Jaussen, Seth Jaussen, Beka Jaussen, Mary Jaussen, and Grace Jaussen.
    • David Campbell and Matt Courtney will be traveling January 28-February 9, 2012 to El Sembrador, Honduras through World Gospel Mission. The local missionaries in El Sembrador are seeking donations of much needed tools for the mission: several new corded electric drills, drill bit sets, any type of screwdrivers, and good 7 1/4 inch circular saw blades. See Matt or Dave by January 23, 2012 if you are able to donate any of these items.
    Please be praying for their safety and that God will use them in a mighty way to further His Kingdom.
