October 2018

October brings us a change in our Sunday morning schedule, as we move our worship time to 10:00 a.m. Beginning October 7, the schedule for Sundays will look like this:

9:15 a.m. Choir rehearsal
10:00 a.m. Worship
10:15 a.m. Church school classes for children and youth
11:00 a.m. Refreshments and fellowship
11:15 a.m. Scheduled church meetings or special events

On October 7 we will celebrate World Communion with Christians around the world. We’re collecting recipes that reflect our differing heritages and cultural roots, and will print the recipes to share. Please send your recipe to pastor.crossroads@att.net by Wednesday, October 3.

On World Communion Sunday we will receive the Peace & Global Witness Offering, one of the special offerings of our Presbyterian Church (USA).

Our friends from Waterford Congregational United Church of Christ are sponsoring an e-cycling event at Crossroads on Saturday, October 20, from 9 to 1 p.m. Call the church office if you’d like more information.

Rev. Christine Caton will be our guest preacher on Sunday, October 21.

A congregational meeting to elect church officers will be held Sunday, October 28, at 11:00 a.m.

And, finally, watch for details of an early celebration of St. Andrew’s Day, complete with bagpipes in worship, at the end of October or beginning of November!
