Christmas at Crossroots Church
You're invited to gather with us during the most wonderful time of the year!
November 28 - December 26
Christmas Sermon Series
As we consider our goals, dreams, and aspirations, it’s important that we assess what we really want in life. What do we strive for? Conversely, what do we really need in life? Wants and needs might fall into two different categories. What we want in life isn’t always what we really need!
Each Sunday at 10am (November 28 – December 19) during Wishlist, our Christmas sermon series, we will consider the themes of Advent and the Gospel in their application to our deepest needs in life.
One of our values is connecting all generations together so at the end of every service during the series, each family will receive an Advent box filled with activities to help your family celebrate Advent and the Christmas story together.
Surviving the Holidays - Saturday, December 4
On Saturday, December 4, from 3:00-5:00pm, we will host GriefShare Surviving the Holidays seminar/workshop for people who have suffered the loss of a loved one. In your grief, you may wonder how you will survive the weeks surrounding Thanksgiving and Christmas. You may dread these holidays, knowing that everything has changed and fearing that happy memories from past years can’t be recreated.
Roy & Chris Miller will lead this two-hour seminar, which includes a video presentation and an opportunity to share strategies for coping with this new season in our lives. Each participant receives a copy of Surviving the Holidays Survival Guide, a 60 page guide and journal for navigating the season (suggested donation of $5). Snacks and drinks will be provided.
Please register each individual (18+) below.
Surviving the Holidays 4 Kids will be provided for ages 5-12.
Childcare will be provided for ages 0-4.
Christmas Sweater Sunday - December 12
Get out that Christmas sweater (funny, tacky or vintage) that’s been hanging in your closet all year long, put it on and gather with us at 10am.
If you wear one, you will be entered for some prizes.
Bring someone with you to join the fun!
Christmas Sunday - December 19
Gather with us at 10am to celebrate Christmas!
Come early before the service to enjoy a hot cocoa bar and cookies. We’ll have a photobooth and several areas in the building where you can take photos. Make sure you use the #ChristmasatCrossroots and #ChristmasInEffingham on social media.
This service is always memorable and a great way to start the Christmas week.
Sunday, December 26 - TBA!
We’ll be announcing our plans for this service soon! It’s going to be a time you won’t want to miss.
But the angel said to them, “Don’t be afraid, for look, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people."
