Dear CrossWord Family,
As you are aware, the world has shifted. We are living during a season where life is changing daily, but be encouraged, because God is still in charge and in control. The Bible says,
“There will be wars and rumors of wars. And, these things must happen, but the end is not yet.”Matthew 24:6
I believe we are living in the “not yet” moment. Is God done with you? Not yet! Is the church done? Not yet! Is the church essential? Absolutely! Yet, God has called us to be wise, especially during times like this.
Unfortunately, this virus is affecting Black and Brown people more than any other race.
Therefore, the reopening of our physical worship service that was scheduled for this coming weekend, July 11/12th, WILL BE POSTPONED. Our updated target date will now be the first weekend in August – August 1 & 2, 2020.
We love and care about you and your household, which is why the date has been changed. We are operating in wisdom, not fear.
With our reopening in August, worship services will be limited to 100 people per service and we have developed an online registration process. More information with specific instructions on how to register to attend service will be provided in the next several days. This is a fluid situation so please check your email, follow us Facebook or Instagram, or visit our website at www.crosswordchurch.org.
Our online church team is doing an awesome job broadcasting our Sunday services, our Monday #BetterAskSykes Q & A, and our Wednesday Night Bible Study sessions. We praise God for our entire team of dedicated professionals who are committed to making your online experience awesome.
Thank you for being so faithful. We love and appreciate you,
Bishop L. Kirk Sykes
Pastor Karen J. Sykes
