EVENTS

Here are some of the latest events coming up here at

Cross Roads Community UMC.  

BLESS A HOME OUTREACH

Cross Roads UMC  will once again be partnering with The Link this year to provide 10 baskets of food for a holiday meal and gifts for 6 families.  

 

All donations made to the White Bucket Offering before December 11 will go towards helping purchase food and gifts for these families.  

 

If you’d like to help by being a shopper or packager, please let Jenny Daby know!

RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE

Cross Roads is hosting another Red Cross Blood Drive on Wednesday, December 14, from 1:00 pm to 7:00 pm. in the Fellowship Hall.

 

What do we need from the congregation? Two things:

1) If you able to give blood, go the Red Cross website (click HERE) and put in your zip code to find our blood drive. Then sign up! You can also call 1-800-RED-CROSS to sign up. We need to have at least 30 people registered to give blood in order for the Red Cross to hold the blood drive.



2) We need volunteers (2-3 per shift) for two hour shifts to work the check-in desk and possibly help pass out refreshments.

 

If you would like to volunteer, please contact Jenny Daby at jennydaby5@gmail.com, or you can contact the church office or Pastor Leslie.

TUESDAY'S TABLE COMING AGAIN IN JANUARY! 

Tuesday’s Table is a weekly community meal focused on providing food and fellowship where relationships can flourish across socioeconomic lines and neighbors have the opportunity to serve one another. There are four (4) churches in our area who provide the meals on a monthly basis: Lady of Our Lakes, Covenant Church-NL, Faith Lutheran, and Peace Lutheran.  

 

However, a few times a year there is a fifth Tuesday in the month, and this is where we come in. Cross Roads and some other smaller churches who cannot commit on a weekly basis have agreed to take turns hosting on these Tuesdays. And November is our time to shine and show off!

 

Tuesday, January 30, 2023, we will once again be hosting the Tuesday's Table here at Cross Roads. If you would like to volunteer to help with this event, please contact either Pat Evermann or Jenny Daby.  

Cross Roads Coffee Corner

Cross Roads is continuing one of its first small groups and everyone is invited!

 

Cross Roads "Coffee Corner" has changed its meeting dates.  This small group will begin meeting the   2nd Wednesday of each month at 9:00am (beginning in November)  in the Fellowship Hall. Everyone is invited to come as frequently or as little as you like. This is a time for coffee and fellowship; just a way to catch up with what is going on with others in the congregation, especially those you perhaps haven't had a chance to really talk to since the pandemic began, or those you would like to get to know better.  If you would like to bring treats to share with others, feel free.

 

We encourage you to bring a friend, especially someone who doesn't have a church family. This would be a terrific way to introduce them to folks at Cross Roads in a casual setting.

 

We look forward to seeing you soon!!
