Please know that our Elders, Pastors, and Church Staff are committed to working together to continuously have a proactive approach to the needs of our church and community during this time, and always.
Here is a summary of what we have established to be in harmony with government guidelines:
All church gatherings are canceled until further notice.
What that means is this . . .
All of the following activities are suspended from meeting in person:
Gatherings at the church
Teen Center or Youth Group meetings
Other Crossroad's Ministries and events
The church buildings will be locked up other than essential responsibilities.
This is a wonderful opportunity for incredible ministry. Here’s what to expect:
-Broadcast Sunday services will be available on our YouTube page, accessed through our church website at www.c3stockbridge.org- Click the black button that says "YouTube."
- You can also watch these on our Facebook Page. If you haven't already liked and started following our page, please do so! (The Facebook Page is in addition to the Facebook group.)
- We will also be posting video devotionals from Pastors and staff, along with video lessons from Discovery Island, Finders, and Youth Ministry. Please be on the lookout for these!
Fun fact: We looked at what a nearby church of 275 people had posted on Facebook. Their Sunday service post received OVER 1,400 views as of Monday afternoon when we looked at it on their page! This can be incredible ministry. Please, like and share these videos on Facebook. It very well may be the only access your friends and family have in the coming weeks.
Giving is essential during this time for several reasons:
First, giving is part of worship. It is obedience. It is part of our worship to return tithes to God and give offerings from our abundance.
Second, our community will have many needy people during this time. We should gather resources to have on hand to help those in need.
Ways to give tithes and offering:
Mail- Administrative staff will be checking the mail daily and processing all giving and tithes. You can mail in to 950 S Clinton St. Stockbridge, MI 49285
Bill Pay- Did you know.... if you have Bill Pay set up with your bank you can add Crossroads Community Church as a payee and they'll send us a check from you for free! All you need is our address- 950 S Clinton St. Stockbridge, MI 49285. The check will come directly to us with your name on it.
Paypal- You can visit our website giving page https://www.c3stockbridge.org/giving
