Open for 2012

I'm thankful to be a part of Crossroads Community Church.

Crossroads is gathering of people in the Dassel-Cokato area who know Jesus and who feel called to be part of this particular faith family for this particular time of our lives.  We are individuals and families who are on a journey to know Jesus more and more, and who want others to know Jesus in a personal way too.

Tomorrow at church we'll have the opportunity to sign a partnership agreement for the next year.  The agreement says this:
Trusting Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, accepting the Bible as authoritative for faith and life, we believe God is calling us together through 2012 to pray, worship, study the scriptures, serve, care for one another and give financially for the ministry and mission of God through Crossroads Community Church of Cokato.
Is God calling you to be a part of Crossroads in 2012?   
  • Perhaps you already know the answer to that question.   
  • Perhaps it will take you awhile to know if that the Lord is indeed leading you in this direction.  
In any case, I encourage you to come and be with us.  We won't have a "signing ceremony."  The partnership agreement will simply be placed in the back of the church where you can stop by and sign it at your convenience.

Being part of the Crossroads family is more than any piece of paper or "list" of members.  As we pray and worship and read scripture and serve and care and give together, we will grow together with one another and with the Lord Jesus. 

Being a part of the Crossroads family will help you hear Jesus' voice more clearly.  When it's time, you can choose to "sign up" for the year.  And if God calls you elsewhere, we will prayerfully and gratefully bless you on your way.  God is the boss of this church.  We must listen to him.

Whether or not you feel comfortable "signing," we want you to know the doors are open to you.
