The Battle Belongs to the Lord

In March, we were informed that an anonymous donor has pledged up to $100,000 to the Crossroads Building Fund between March 26th and December 31st!  He she would like to match all contributions made to the Building Fund, dollar-for-dollar, in order to raise a total of up to $200,000 by the end of this year.

Please note “Building Fund” on the memo line on your check or select the Building Fund option when donating online through eGive.  When giving by check, you may designate a portion of your donation for the Building Fund; i.e., it is not necessary to write separate checks.

The elders want to remind everyone that offerings to the Building Fund should be over and above tithes to the General Fund.

Praise God, from Whom all blessing flow!

Youth Ski Retreat

March 5-7 Our Youth Ski Retreat spent  a wonderful weekend at Timberline Ski Resort in Canaan Valley, WV.

We had two days of skiing in great snow conditions they have had over 250 inches of snow this year, all the trails were open. The sun shone the whole weekend.

We stayed at Canaan Valley Baptist Church and had a lot of fun getting to know each other better and sharing God’s word.  Andrea Williams and Marcy Naylor (plus a couple of other adults) prepared some great meals for us. and Dave Williams kept us on track with a fun-filled schedule.

Music Notes Spring 2010

Like the psalmist who declared, “Sing a new song to the Lord!”, we too enjoy learning new songs together at Crossroads.  But often it is hard to truly worship when the song is unfamiliar.  Sometimes we will sing new songs during the offertory and ask you to sing along as it becomes comfortable.  However, some of you might like to know what songs the praise team is preparing for corporate worship ahead of time, so that you can add them to your personal devotions.  Our overall desire is that you come prepared to worship our God together, with one voice.   Here are the new songs for our current sermon series on I Samuel.

By Faith                                  by Keith and Kristyn Getty and Stuart Townsend.  As we consider I Samuel together under Don’s teaching, we are reminded that others have walked the path of faith before us, like David, who was a “man after God’s own heart.”  (Hebrews 11)

Glorious and Mighty          by Joel Sczebel, Todd Twining, and Bob Kauflin.  There’s just nothing better than worshipping God together through the Psalms.  Here the psalmist shows us how to sing of God’s glory and might and beauty. (Psalm 96)

The Lord Is                             by Pat Sczebel and Bob Kauflin.    As we study together David’s life, we see a man with real nitty-gritty life problems (not unlike you and I!), who nonetheless relied on God to lead him and give him rest. (Psalm 23)

Come People of the Risen King       by Keith and Kristyn Getty and Stuart Townsend.  Preparing our hearts to celebrate Easter, we are reminded of Christ’s unmistakable power over sin and death as He was raised to new life.  In corporate worship, we come as people of the risen King, indeed.

These and other songs are available for download at iTunes via Crossroads Worship Spring 2010.  For more information please contact Linda at

Mission Outreach – Meals for the Hilda Barg Homeless Shelter

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink… (Matthew 25: 34-35, NIV)
