We’re excited you’re checking out one of our services this Sunday! When you come, here’s what to expect:
You can choose from three services in our main auditorium: 8:30, 10:00 or 11:30 a.m. A host will give you important information and help everyone practice social distancing. Families can and should sit together, but there must be at least two seats between you and the next family or individual sitting on your particular row.
- Our GRAND HALL serves as an additional LOBBY AREA to provide plenty of room for anyone to comfortably and safely wait for services to begin.
Our Spanish service is in the Chapel at 11:30 a.m. Every other row is marked to practice social distancing.
[Our Cross Street auditorium is reserved at each service for the at-risk population.]
All seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
We ask everyone to maintain six feet of social distancing as you move into the building and venue where you will worship.
We encourage everyone to bring your own hand sanitizer. Even though we will have hand sanitizer on campus, we encourage you to bring some as well. (If you would like to donate some to help us have more than enough, that would be great, too!)
We encourage everyone to wash or sanitize hands upon entering and after any interacting with others.
Consistent with the actions taken by many individuals across the state, consider wearing cloth face coverings.
We use disposable communion each Sunday. You can pick that up on your way in. We won’t hand out programs or pass giving bags during services. We encourage you to use online giving, text and giving boxes.
Our parking lot hosts will welcome you and guide everyone to a parking lot.
You can park in any spot you’d like, unless designated for handicap or guests.
Those with handicap designations and anyone new to Crossroads can receive help finding a spot reserved for you by turning on your hazard lights. A parking lot host will guide you to the spot for you.
Are wearing gloves.
Only one volunteer is serving per set of doors. We will not shake hands, fist bump or hug.
We’ll do our best for no one to open a door.
We have clearly identified specific “entrance” and “exit” doors.
We are keeping every area as clear and open as possible.
We encourage people to use the Grand Hall, upstairs lobbies and hallways. (We have lots of extra room on the upper level.)
Begin promptly at 8:30, 10:00 and 11:30 a.m.
Pre-packaged communion is set out on tables for people to pick up on their way in.
We do not have any transactional business on campus such as food services, communion trays or giving bags. The bookstore is closed.
Our Spanish service is in the Chapel at 11:30 a.m. Every other row is marked off for social distancing.
We have a host at each service helping people as they are getting seated.
At the end of the service, we have a time where you can make a decision for Jesus. We encourage those making decisions to go through one of two doors: on the right or left side of stage.
Anyone making a decision will make their way to the children’s building gymnasium where ministers are available. Chairs are spread out to accommodate over 100 decisions per service.
Baptisms are done individually.
We won’t do any group baptisms unless members of the same family.
We are available to do private baptism times for anyone more comfortable with that.
Nursery and Preschool
We have started limited childcare for birth through pre-K on Sundays. Our Children's Ministry team has been working for weeks now on appropriate procedures, protocols and programming in order to do it safely and effectively. Daycares have reopened and we are getting input from parents whose children are involved to know what they are doing. So far our plans are in line or even better than what we are hearing.
Please pre-register your child HERE to attend children’s classes; classes currently available are nursery through preschool. The deadline to pre-register each week is Friday at 5:00 p.m. When you pre-register, you’ll receive an email with details about what to expect and what area your child will be going to on Sunday.
The health and safety of our children and their families is always our highest priority. While children are in our care, to ensure the best and safest experience possible, we’ve added some enhanced health and safety protocols based on CDC guidelines. Click Here for our Safety Guidelines
We have on campus Youth services Sunday mornings at 10:00 and 11:30 a.m. in the DOULOS auditorium.
We encourage families to worship together. One idea for parents of children Kindergarten through sixth grade is to bring a set of headphones and a mobile device and kids can watch the creative and engaging kids' lesson while parents worship! You can check this week’s lesson out here. We’ve also created a few coloring sheets you can find here. Just print them and bring them with you — and we’ll have the crayons when you come. We continue to closely monitor what is happening as well as when it’s safe for us to open our children’s building and expand our ministry to children. As soon as it is possible to open up safely, we will!
There are currently no on campus college, men’s or women’s ministries, including Sunday studies. You can check back here for updates on this.
There are no UNlimited services on campus at this time.
We want to allow everyone plenty of time to get comfortable with our campus and the new normal.
In addition to our paid cleaning staff, we have added more people to clean before, between and after all services.
We wipe down all arm rests, tables, chairs, door knobs/handles/crash bars, all equipment, etc.
We encourage and gladly accept donations of hand sanitizer, wipes, Lysol, etc. You can drop them off in the buckets available in each lobby during the week or when you come to worship.
We have bottled water available in each lobby when you come to worship.
We don’t currently have food service on campus.
All water fountains are shut off, but tables with bottled water are in their place for your convenience.
We have hand sanitizer everywhere, especially in all lobbies and restrooms.
For your convenience, giving envelopes are on tables along with pre-packaged communion when you come in.
If you have any concerns or health issues, we strongly recommend you remain at home and watch our online services which will continue at all normal service times: 8:30, 10, 11:30 and 5.
Again, all ministries, activities and services have not yet begun on campus. For example, we will not have a 5 p.m. service on campus for the foreseeable future.
