  • Please refrain from hugging, hand shakes, or other personal contact - wave hello or give a thumbs up as we greet each other safely

  • After service, please exit the building as you are dismissed by the ushers. The building will be sanitized before and after each service

3/20/2020, 3:20PM, EST: Schedule Change                                                                                              

 

Due to recent developments in South Jersey, we have prayerfully decided to revise the service schedule for this Sunday, March 22.

 

Instead of two split services, we will be holding an exclusively digital service on Sunday, March 22. Service will also be held digitally on Wednesday, March 25. 

 

Online church will take place through the following link: crossroadsnewfield.org/messages

 

Resources for worship, children’s ministry, and online giving are available at this link. Messages will be posted online through the “Message Broadcast” button at our regular service times: 

 

Sunday 10:30am        Wednesday 7pm 

 

Out of an abundance of caution, we are requesting that members view the message at home and do not host their own gatherings in place of traditional service. 

 

Please share this link with others so we can all gather virtually this week! 

 

Information for future services will continue to be posted on social media and the webpage.
