9:00 AM and 10:30 AM services
Jesus had a wonderful teaching style using simple stories and illustrations to point out truth about our lives and faith. In his parables we are invited to see ourselves. We begin our new Sunday schedule with worship at 9 & 10:30 AM.
Pastor Mike introduces the fall series “It’s Your Story” with the invitation to establish a solid foundation by giving Jesus some authority in your life. Everybody has some kind of a foundation for their life – what is yours? (2 Samuel 12: 1-7 & Luke 6: 46-49)
Pastor Mike explores Jesus’ story about two sons – one makes big promises and fails to deliver. The other says “No” to serving, but ends up showing up. Jesus invites us to actually do something with our faith and life. (Matthew 21: 28-32)
Pastor Mike asks, when we pray, does God listen? Where do my prayers go? Jesus’ parable of the midnight caller invites us to embrace persistence in praying. Luke 11: 5-13
In the effort to meet the needs of our congregation and the community, we are excited to announce that beginning Sunday, September 16, Cross Winds will have a new Sunday morning schedule:
Other adult learning options will occur at various times, both on Sunday mornings at other times of the week.
Both worship services are nearly identical. “All of our wonderful music groups including the choir, various ensembles, brass, and Wind of the Spirit will continue to be blessing us at both of our worship services.”
This schedule is intended to better meet the needs of families who are looking for worship and Sunday School to occur at the same time, as well as for those who want to attend worship and also take in an educational experience. It also eventually allows for more classes and groups to meet. We are also mindful that studies indicate it is wise to conclude worship and groups well before the noon hour. For several good reasons this time change was thoughtfully considered and made.
