Spring 2018 Art & Music Fest

May 7, 2018 ~ 6:00-8:00pm


Celebrating our five year partnership of serving the children in our community, Binns Elementary School and Crossroads United Methodist Church join together to present our first “Spring Art & Music Fest,” featuring artwork and music from the students at Binns.


Crossroads UMC began partnering with Binns in 2013 by providing reading tutors for students who needed a boost in order to improve their reading skills to meet the State of Ohio’s “Third Grade Guarantee,” that all students should be reading at grade level by the end of third grade. Over the following years, that partnership has bloomed into a real friendship between the school family and the church family as both groups seek to serve the community that surrounds us in various ways. This “Spring Art & Music Fest” is a next step in that evolution.


Under the guidance of Mrs. Kerry Abraham, the Binns Elementary art instructor, the children have prepared special pieces of art that will be on display at Crossroads beginning the week of April 30th. That artwork will be made available for sale through a silent auction at Crossroads on the night of the “Art and Music Fest,” with the proceeds of the sale going to support the Crossroads UMC Food Pantry. Binns Elementary has been a strong and growing supporter of the

Crossroads Food Pantry, which serves thousands of people in our shared community each year.


During our “Art & Music Fest,” we will also hear music provided by the Binns Elementary Choir, under the direction of Mr. Jonathon Satterfield, who will perform their Spring Show for those

gathered.


We hope you’ll come out on Monday, May 7th to support our children and our partnership!

wednesday morning bible study

Every Wednesday Morning at 10:15am in the Lounge

The Gospel of John


The fourth and final of the Gospels, or "Good News" of Jesus Christ, John is considered unique among the evangelistic writings. Concerned less with the history of Jesus than with the meaning of Jesus. John's gospel is often referred to as a "spiritual" gospel that stands distinctly apart from Matthew, Mark, and Luke, the synoptic" (seen together) gospels. We'll spend 8 weeks studying John's Gospel using the Immersion Bible Study Guide that we've used for our ongoing study of the Bible.


We invite all who would like to come and be a part of this study to join us as we come alongside the sermon series on John's gospel that will mark the first half of 2018 at Crossroads.


Study guides are available now. There is no charge, but a suggested donation of $10 will cover the cost of the book.

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! 

Communion

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.
