Dear Crosstowners, 


What a difference a week can make! Life and freedom are fragile things. We are reminded continually that life is but a vapor (James 4:14). Because of the fear of spreading the COVID-19 virus freedoms are taken away. Restrictions are placed upon the people and we are told what we can and cannot do. As Americans these things have been easily taken for granted. Let us be reminded as well that these things (Life & Freedom) are only secure in Christ. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life" (John 14:6) and "So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed" (John 8:36). 

So, as we navigate these uncharted waters we will trust in the Lord for wisdom, and help, for "My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth" (Psalm 121:2). After much prayer and deliberation, the decision has been made to suspend our public gatherings for the next two weeks. We had already made this decision for our mid-week activities but are now announcing that all Sunday Life Groups and Worship services have been suspended through Sunday, March 29th. 

After these two weeks have passed, we will make an evaluation based upon the Federal, State, and Local authorities, the CDC, and what we believe are best practices in keeping everyone safe through this crisis. Please pay attention to all communication coming from Crosstown Fellowship. 

 

In the meantime, we are making arrangements to provide live streaming of our services and weekly Bible Study. So, we invite you to log onto our FACEBOOK page at 10:45 am Sunday morning for our live feed. I will be bringing a message along with a time of prayer. We invite you to interact with us by presenting your prayer requests and praises. I will share those live for the church to pray together.


In His Grip,

Pastor John
