We are called to live in faith, not fear, while being tempered by wisdom.
These have been difficult times for us all. After experiencing a longer-than-expected disruption of our normal way of life, we wrestle with how best to reopen our facilities. Striking a balance between safety and freedom always has been difficult. It is especially difficult for leaders who carry the burden of care for a group of people.
While social distancing is an important defense against the spread of COVID-19, human beings have been created for community as well. In an attempt to balance taking safety precautions, while at the same time creating opportunities for necessary connections, we currently are offering the following 3 options.
The CrossBridge shepherds recognize what a unique and challenging time this is for each of us individually and in community as a church family.
We want to thank our staff for continuing such excellent work in connecting with and encouraging all of us during this extraordinary past couple of weeks.
Through phone calls, emails, social media and live and recorded videos, we are using the gift of technology in creative ways to stay connected and encouraged in our shared faith.
Our sovereign God is at work even in the most difficult circumstances. It is our prayer that CrossBridge continues to grow in love together and that we emerge stronger than ever when these challenging times are behind us.
How are you most impacted by this time of national distress?
Are you…Sick? Afraid? Anxious? In need of food or supplies? Struggling financially? Questioning God? Struggling with your faith? Your shepherds want you to know we are here with prayer, encouragement and service in the name of our Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ.
We love you and are proactively working to determine the physical and spiritual needs of our CrossBridge family. Please let any one of us know what we can do to bring help and peace to you and your families as we all “bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” (Gal. 6:2).
We hope to find even more creative methods of learning and sharing together as a family, and we look forward to seeing each of you again very soon!
We love you with the love of Christ,
