Building Search Suggestions/Comments
Hi Crossroads Family,
At the end of service on Sunday I was able to share some exciting news. In case you were not able to join us on Sunday here is a recap.
In the past 18 months the elder team has been praying for the future of Crossroads and inviting feedback from the community (many of you were involved in the Blue Dot/Green Dot sessions). As a result the Elders and Leadership Team are feeling led and excited about the possibility
of finding Crossroads a new home. We have been blessed to call Frenchtown home for over 12 years. However, there are several factors that point to now being the time to make the move:
1) An impending rent increase.
2) We currently do not have a welcoming space for our smallest children to meet.
3) The significant man-hours that are required to do church at Frenchtown that could be shifted from setup and logistics to fulfilling our mission.
4) A desire to have an ongoing presence in the community, for the community.
Because of items 1 & 2, we feel like a phased approach could help us meet our immediate needs as well as get us moving toward our long term goal of a permanent space that is Crossroads.
Phase 1 will be a temporary new location to which we have much greater access and where we could leave our gear set up. Perhaps a sharing arrangement with another church or synagogue or some other larger meeting venue or a new rental situation that would not require a tremendous amount of refit to suit our needs.
Phase 2 will be considering options and raising the funds for a permanent home for Crossroads.
In order to facilitate and expediate the search for a new home, a Building Search Team has been put in place. The team welcomes feedback, suggestions and questions from the Crossroads community. Team members are Kevin Kiernan, Dan George, Lori Gregory and Gabe Butler. Leanne and I will be working closely with the team as they search for an appropriate property.
I trust that you are excited about God's leading and that you will continue to pray for us as we are obedient to His call to LOVE GOD and LOVE OTHERS.
Please use this form to submit any location suggestions or questions you have for the Building Search Team.
