News & Events

Returning to Church: – PLEASE READ – VERY IMPORTANT INFO.

First, a short message from our pastor:

I never imagined when we met last on March 15th that it would be 14 weeks before we would be able to meet together again in the church house at Cross Roads.  Praise the Lord!  If He tarries His coming, we will meet together this coming Sunday!  I am so looking forward to it, but I realize that I am not the same as I was on March 15. Jesus has changed me!  I have often said that I pray for God to open my Spiritual eyes, that I might see Him working, to open My Spiritual ears that I might hear Him speaking and to tender my heart so that I would obey Him at the slightest prompting. Wow! Has he ever answered that prayer in these 14 weeks.  As we meet together, may we remember the words of Isaiah, “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles: they shall run and not be weary: and they shall walk, and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)

This battle is God’s, not mine.  He is in charge, not me.  I will wait on God to work. We are standing on the promises of God!!!
