Almost Christmas: A Wesleyan Advent Experience

This month’s Advent series will be based on a new book entitled, “Almost Christmas: A Wesleyan Advent Experience.”  Our Sunday School class will be using the book during December as a supplement to sermons. One of the co-authors of this resource is our own Rev. April Casperson!

Past Sermons

Did you miss last week's service?

Do you wonder what our pastor preaches about?

Did you like a previous sermon so much you want to share it with a friend?

Visit our sermon blog to go back to any previous sermon to read or listen to that week's message.

First Time Visitor?

We know it can be a little scary the first time you visit someplace new,  especially a church, so we want to make it as easy for you as possible.  So, to help make this time as comfortable for you as possible here's  some "helps." We have two parking lots at Crossroads, both of which you  enter off of Hague Avenue. The north lot is closer to the sanctuary, and  has designated VISITOR parking spots adjacent to the main entrance, but  you can get there from the south lot as well. Restrooms are located in  the main hallway off the sanctuary, as well as near the Fellowship Hall  and Kitchen at the other end of the building. Greeters will give you a  copy of the worship folder (you can't tell the players without a  scorecard!) and ushers will help you find a comfortable seat in the  sanctuary. Worship begins at 10:30 am and usually lasts about 75  minutes. 

What to Expect

Worship at Crossroads is pretty casual, as is the dresscode. There  are hymnals in the rows if you like to read music, but all the words are  generally on the screen as well. We share in common readings or  liturgy, prayers and singing, and have a Children's Moment with a  special lesson for the kids before they are released for Sunday School.  While kids are welcome in worship, children under the age of 4 are also  welcomed in our supervised nursery, and children age 5 and up are  invited  to our Sunday School program, just down the hall from the  sanctuary, where they will engage in lessons, crafts, games that are  more suitable for their age than the worship service.   The pastor's messages are usually tied to a theme with practical  application points as well as challenges to how to grow in your faith -  at Crossroads we don't tell you WHAT to think about the faith, we help  you discern HOW to think about YOUR faith. There's a "Notes" page in the  worship folder for your use during the message. Announcements and a  calendar of upcoming events in the life of the church can also be found  there. Usually near the end of the worship gathering we will respond to  God's love for us as shared in the Scripture, prayer, music and  teachings by giving our gifts, tithes and offerings to support the  ministries of the church. As a first time visitor, we invite  you to not  feel like you need to make an offering - your presence is a gift to us.  We just hope that you'll appreciate and enjoy what you experience here  and will want to return! 


And finally, on the first Sunday of every month, and occasionally on  other Sundays, we celebrate Holy Communion, which commemorates the last  meal Jesus had with his disciples. In some churches you have to be a  member in order to receive communion, but in the UNITED METHODIST CHURCH  we practice "OPEN COMMUNION." That is, ALL ARE WELCOME to come to  Christ's table BECAUSE it is Christ's table, and not ours. It is an open  table and all are welcome to share if they would like.
