Hope, Peace, Joy, Community during a pandemic

We firmly believe that Jesus is the source for hope, peace, and joy no matter the circumstances of our lives or the circumstances of the world around us. Even more than that, the hope, peace, and joy that is found in Jesus unite us in community with those who likewise have been called to faith in Him. Hope. Peace. Joy. Community. We have those in Jesus, always. As we grapple through the uncertainty of these days, weeks, maybe months of changes caused by a global pandemic we have hope, peace, joy, and community in Jesus. 

We have Jesus and we have each other.

The Bible says nothing can separate us from Jesus and His love and nothing can crush His church.

This page will be Crosspointe's centralized location for info & resources during the time our in-person, group gatherings are suspended.

Worship during corona

We will be resuming in-person gatherings for worship starting Sunday, May 31. To do so, we have followed the guidelines from the CDC as well as state and local leaders for places of worship. 

As we resume in-person gatherings, we will continue to make our worship services available online. The services will be posted to the youtube channel as we have been doing, but later in the day on Sunday. If you would like to connect to the service live but remotely and online at 10:30 you can do so by clicking on this Zoom link. Zoom access will open at 10:00 or shortly after. 

Slides for the June 28th service can be accessed clicking here

Opportunities to bless others

The current pandemic has been a wonderful opportunity for the church to look for ways to bless our community and its people. Here are some of the ways you can join in on our efforts:

Drop off non-perishable food items for Redemption Road

A protein, a carb/starch, and a fruit or vegetable make a meal

Write a note or color a picture for Good Sam residents

Help place plants around the Good Sam or donate supplies

Donate fragrance-free, anti-bacterial hand soap for Good Sam

Help us thank overnight workers at the VA and Prairie St Johns

Contact Pastor Mike for more details on each opportunity.

Resources during corona

While the lasting result of this season will not be to shift the center of our faith life away from our Sunday morning worship services, this is definitely an opportunity for us to strengthen our faith life outside of worship gatherings by developing new habits and practices at home. We will be adding resources below for your use at home, individually or as a family, both adults & kids.

As we enter the month of May, consider the following ways you can strengthen your faith:

Follow the Discipleship Plan to read Colossians over 4 weeks

Memorize the verse of the week

Request resources from Pastor Mike to celebrate baptisms

Download the Daily Devotion from Lutheran Hour Ministries on your phone

Prayer during corona

The current pandemic has been an opportunity for our church to be watchful for new ways to do ministry and new resources that can be shared and used at any time of the day and week wherever you are. An overarching goal has been to only start new things that have the potential to be sustained and continued beyond this season. A new weekly prayer sheet with prayers for each day is one resource that has emerged as meeting all of those goals. This resource allows all of us to pray for the same thing each day and also encourages you to develop a daily practice of prayer - even if brief. Click here for this week's page
