Alternative Ministry Project
Our Alternative Ministry Project continues to offer alternative worship experiences the third Tuesday of every month. We’ll meet on Tuesday, September 19 at Monroeville Community Park, Pavilion 3, at 6:30 p.m. for a shared meal. At 7:00 we move into a time of worship with high energy songs you may already know, and can learn quickly if they are new to you. It’s a service to invite your friends to join, with opportunity to talk and visit over dinner and an informal worship time that isn’t intimidating for visitors. Dress is casual.
Fellowship Hour Baby Shower
The Cross Roads Women’s Circle and the Church and Community Involvement Ministry Team will be hosting the Annual Church Baby Shower for the East Liberty Family Health Center on Sunday, September 24. Join us in Fellowship Hall after worship for refreshments as we present our gifts for moms in need. The East Liberty Birth Circle has asked for new born diapers, wipes, onesies in various sizes, digital thermometers, board books for babies, hats for winter, blankets and booties. Do not purchase products for bathing or skin care. We will also have a box for cash donations. All of your generous donations will be greatly appreciated.
Faith and Film
If you prefer your stories on the big screen, don’t miss our monthly Faith and Film events, held the fourth Tuesday of each month. We’ll see a matinee movie at the Phoenix 18 Cinema in North Versailles, and then gather at King’s Family Restaurant for an informal discussion. Movie selections are printed in the bulletin and on the Facebook page the weekend before the event. Our September event will be on Tuesday, September 26. Everyone is welcome!
Fashion Show Returns
The Cross Roads Fashion Show will return on Saturday, October 7. This year’s event, “A Year of Celebrations,” will feature clothing for all ages from LuLaRoe. The event includes a luncheon catered by Gourmet Affairs as well as the fashion show, with clothing items available for purchase. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children age 12 and under, and are available after our worship services and in the church office during the week. Proceeds will benefit the Cross Roads Food Pantry and the Pitcairn Food Pantry.
Hosts are needed to decorate our tables in celebration themes. Please see the sign-up sheet on the Current Happenings Board to provide cups, napkins, a center piece and table cloth for one of our celebrations!
Artists Needed for Fall Art Show
To help celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Cross Roads on Haymaker, we are hosting an art show. This is a chance for us to celebrate the gift of our creative vision. All forms of art are welcome whether it is drawing or painting or jewelry or wood working or anything else you enjoy creating. The show will be on October 15, 2017 after church from 11:00 to 1:00. If you would like to show some of your art please sign up on the Current Happenings board and fill out a registration form. We will also be raising money for Cross Roads mission and the Food Pantry by selling donated work!
