WANT TO FIND JOY
IN THE JOURNEY
AN INCLUSIVE COMMUNITY FOR ALL WHO
Please Join Us for a Never-Before Lenten Study!
Four, rural Minnesota pastors are collaborating to bring you what we hope will provide the very-best Lenten experience in this season of wilderness:
Rev. Leslie Zeek, Crossroads UMC
Pastor Kevin Gregory, Joyful Spirit & Frazee UMCs
Pastor Amy Strom, Dent & Vergas UMCs
Pastor Amy VanValkenburg, Atwater & Rosendale UMCs
We will meet virtually each week on Thursdays at 6:30pm via Zoom, which can be accessed by clicking HERE (the link is the same each week).
To access our Bible study via telephone, click HERE for instructions and information(this information is also the same each week).
Our schedule will be as follows:
Feb. 11: Chapters 1&2, with video from Rev. Laurie Kantonen
Feb. 18: Chapters 3&4, with video from Rev. Fred Vanderwerf
Feb. 25: Chapters 5&6, with video from Rev. Cynthia Williams

March 11: Chapters 9&10, with video from Rev. Susan Nienaber

Attendance numbers, not names, will be taken for each church family represented for each session.
• During the last session in March, it will be revealed which church brought the most participants overall. The church with the highest participation numbers overall will be awarded a $100 check to put toward the charity of their choice.
In the spirit of a fun-loving competition, let us do our best to:
start together, stay together, and finish together!

WELCOMING YOU HOME
We are a United Methodist Congregation that wants you to come as you are. We are an inclusive community which strives to help you find joy in your journey with God.
ABOUT OUR CHURCH
Students in grades 3-12 are invited to meet at the church for Cross Roads Youth Group on the 1st & 3rd Wednesdays of each month.
Join us at the church at 6:00 pm for dinner, followed by our gathering from 6:30-8:00 pm, which are fun ways of encouraging each other in our faith.
One thing about our church family… we love to put our faith into action.
Being a church in a rural setting, we are also pleased to draw from many of our surrounding communities.
