Monday, April 6, 2020 - Holy Week at Crossroads
– a Message from Rev. Judith M. Evenden

We are now into the 4th week of our Crossroads Church building closed, and all programs held within it being suspended. All of us have had to adapt to this new way of being church, finding ways to still be connected while we are apart. I want to offer my heart-felt gratitude to the Crossroads staff and volunteers who have responded with grace, enthusiasm and good humour to the challenges placed before us by this pandemic. A church does not, and never has been, the function of a few. The best run communities of faith have, as pillars of support, a variety of folk who do what they do best, offering what they can, when they can. For all you have done – THANK YOU!
Please click here to read the remainder of Rev. Judith's message

Each day that we are apart, may you feel Spirit connecting us through the persistent prayers of one another. God Bless,
Rev. Judith M. Evenden, Minister

During this time, Rev. Judith Evenden, and our Church Administrator, Karen Elliott, will still be available by phone and email, during regular office hours, and will try to respond to needs as they arise.

Rev. Judith can be reached at: minister@crossroadsunited.ca

Karen Elliott, our Administrator, can be reached at: chrchsect@bellnet.ca

Please email or call for assistance. We will also be updating our Facebook page and Website as more information becomes available.
