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.
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:
"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.
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.
"I Thirst” At this worship experience we examine the fifth of Jesus’ words from the Cross. John 19: 28-29
"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.
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.
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.
“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)
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.
All visits and gatherings at the church must be scheduled through the office with Lori Goldstein. Please call ahead.
