Worship Schedule

Sunday Morning 

On-Line Services

We continue to produce a 30-35 minute worship service for each weekend. Weekly On-Line Services are available each week beginning Mid Saturday Afternoon.  

Seven Last Words from the Cross

I hope you’ve been able to be with us for worship for our Lent journey looking at the Seven Last Words of Jesus from the Cross. Even on the Cross, in personal agony, Jesus is still teaching us about life, while He fulfills His mission to deal with our brokenness. Even here Jesus is the Master teacher. We conclude this series during March as we move into Holy Week and the celebration of Easter:


Sunday, March 7 (online) The fourth of Jesus words from the Cross

"My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me?” (Matthew 27: 28-29). At this online worship service Communion will be celebrated. You can pick up communion elements at the church – Monday through Thursday, 9 AM – 2 PM. I suggest calling Lori Goldstein (763-494-9463) to let her know you are coming.


Sunday Evening March 7 (in person) “Evensong” - 5 pm in person

A quiet and reflective in person worship experience returns at 5 PM. Borrowing from ancient and new traditions, we worship and celebrate communion in the sanctuary.
There is room for 50 persons. Sign-up required Bring your own mask.


Sunday, March 14 (online) The fifth of Jesus words from the Cross

"I Thirst” At this worship experience we examine the fifth of Jesus’ words from the Cross. John 19: 28-29


Sunday, March 21 (online) The sixth and seventh of Jesus words from the Cross

"It is Completion” (John 19:30) & “Father, Into Your Hands I Commit My Spirit” (Luke 23: 44-46) are the sixth and seventh words Jesus spoke from the Cross, as His task has been accomplished. This is a cry of victory with a prayer of release.


Sunday, March 28 (online) Palm Sunday (Luke 19: 28-49)

Also called “The Triumphal Entry,” Jesus enters Jerusalem and it seems everyone loves a parade. But some religious leaders can’t stand what they see. And Jesus too has a problem with the way people are getting ripped off as they come to worship at the Temple.

Friday, April 2 (in person at 6:00 and 7:30 pm and online) Holy Week Worship.

This Friday night service covers the events of Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. In the sanctuary at both 6:00 & 7:30 PM, as well as online, we’ll recall "The First Communion Service" & Jesus’ crucifixion to set us free. This service is given to us by our Student Ministry.

Sunday, April 4 – Easter Sunday (in person in sanctuary at 8:30 AM, in the parking lot at 10 AM, and online)

“The First Words from the Resurrection” After Lent’s “Seven Last Words” we now hear the first words of the resurrected Jesus: “Greetings! Do Not Be Afraid. Go and Tell & “Woman, Why Are You Crying? Who Are You Looking For?” & "Mary” (see Matthew 28: 9,10 & John 20: 13-18)


COVID-19 Response Update -Orange Phase returns – with some changes

We look forward to the day when in person worship services and gatherings return.  We sure miss getting together.  Hopefully, with vaccines becoming more available, that day will come soon.  Until then, we remain committed to the diligent observance of safe practices. 

Following the guidelines of our Minnesota Annual Conference of United Methodists, Cross Winds is following the Orange Phase guidelines again.  But there are some changes.

  • For the time being, we are encouraged to continue to worship online. We will continue to produce recorded services each week.
  • Evensong worship services are returning in the sanctuary for up to 50 persons. The first Evensong worship experiences will be on Ash Wednesday, Feb 17 with worship options at both 6:00 or 7:30 PM. Then beginning in March, Evensong is planned for the first Sunday of each month at 5:00 PM.  Sign-ups will be required.
  • Small weddings and funerals are possible, with a maximum of 50 persons in attendance. No food or beverages may be served.
  • Those over 60 years of age and those with health conditions should continue to stay home and worship online.
  • Church staff will continue to work at home as much as possible.
  • Small groups of up to 10 will be allowed inside Cross Winds as long they follow safe practices.
  • Inside Cross Winds, masks must be worn, and 6 foot physical distancing must be practiced by family units. A list of attendees must be made for each gathering.

All visits and gatherings at the church must be scheduled through the office with Lori Goldstein. Please call ahead.
