(Revised) Invitation

The email below was originally sent out on Jan. 15 and posted on this blog the next day.  Now, as of Jan. 29, the meeting has been postponed twice and is now scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 3.

Dear Crossroads Friends!

God's peace and power be with you today!

This coming Sunday, Jan. 20 Feb. 3, immediately following worship, our church board of directors will host a "new year" meeting of our church partners and friends.  We invite all to consider becoming a Crossroads Partner for 2013, but if you are as yet unsure about "signing up" for this year, we still hope you will attend. 

At this meeting we'll be brought up to date on what the Lord is doing through us at Crossroads.  We'll also take a look at our 2012 finances and our 2013 budget.

If you've been blessed by a particular Crossroads ministry, we encourage you to share a brief comment or "story" about how God has worked in your life or in the lives of others through Crossroads Community Church, locally or further away.  God has been blessing us in so many ways!  What opportunities have you participated in?  How have you been blessed by giving... or receiving... or both?  We want to give Him the glory at this meeting by briefly sharing together what God is doing. 

In the event that an item will need to be voted on, you will need to have signed the 2013 partnership agreement to vote.  The Partnership Agreement is located in the Fellowship Hall and needs to be signed each year by all who believe God is calling them to be Crossroads partners.  Please be in prayer about that this week if you haven't already.  For more on Partnership please check our church website -

The rest of the email (below) from Jan. 15 related to a "Leadership Day" that a dozen of us from Crossroads attended on Jan. 26.  The following people were able to attend: Don & Robin Begarowicz, Ed & Lynne Lahr, Norma Jean Cruz, Diann Mauk, Steve & Toni Thorson, Al & Becky Sorenson, Duane Melquist, Amy Thostenson.  Chat with them to learn what we did!

On Saturday January 26th several of us from our church will be attending the Leadership Day at North Heights. This is a once a year opportunity to connect with the leaders of our church network in person.  You WILL be glad you took the time to attend if you are able.  RSVPs are due no later than Jan. 18.  If you would like to attend please RSVP by calling North Heights Lutheran Church at 651-797-7362 or email with the following information for each person attending:
  • Name
  • Home Church (Crossroads)
  • 1st and 2nd choice of workshop (see right and below)
An offering will be received to cover expenses; suggested donation is $15.

Those attending already would like to carpool down, so if you are thinking of going, talk with Steve or Toni Thorson, Ed or Lynne Lahr, Diann Mauk or Becky Sorenson about carpooling.

The complete schedule for the leadership day with presentation topics is available at

Have a blessed week!

Crossroads Board of Directors
