Celebrating Our Graduates

The school year is winding down, and that means it is graduation time! We would like to celebrate our graduates. Please email Pastor Mike at crosspointumcmike@gmail.com with your graduate's name, the school/ college/ university, etc... Look for more information very soon!

 

Soup & Salad Lunch

We have moved this month's Soup & Salad lunch to June 30th. This will allow us to start setting up for the Annual Yard Sale which will take place June 20th- 22nd. This will also allow us to make a celebration of the lunch on the 30th as we will be celebrating JAM, and will have the children sing during worship, and join us for a celebratory lunch after worship. It is not limited to soup or salad, so if you have something else to bring, please feel free to do so! This is a great way to get to know one another better over some tasty food!

 

This June 24-28 we are offering Vacation Bible School called JAM (Jesus And Me) from 9:00 am- 12:00 pm. The theme is Weird Animals, it is where Jesus' Love is one of a kind. If your child is 3-12 yrs old, please sign them up for this fun and faith filled event. Please click https://vbspro.events/p/65926c, or scan the QR code below.

 

Sunday Morning Tech Team

We are looking for volunteers to help with the sound board to balance sound for our praise team, the worship computer to run our worship slides and our livestream to share our worship service online.  You do not need previous experience as we will train those who would like to help. If you are unable to commit to helping out each week, that is ok, we can work around your schedule.  If you are interested in helping or would like more information, please contact Pastor Mike (330) 696- 6231, or CrosspointUMCMike@gmail.com. This is an easy way to be the hands of Jesus and to serve Him.

Our small groups will return in the fall, including some new groups!

                                                                     Greeters/ Ushers Needed

Do you remember the first time you entered Crosspoint? Was someone at the door to welcome you and help you find your way & to make sure that you felt welcome and appreciated? We are in need of some people to serve as Greeter/ Usher. If you like making people feel like a valued guest, please sign up to help serve as a greeter/ usher. No prior experience is required, just a willingness to help people feel welcome when they are here as our guest. A sign-up sheet is in the back of the worship center.

 

Coffee Helpers Needed

We are in need of some people who like being caffeinated! In the back of the worship center is a sign-up sheet for those who would like to help out with our coffee ministry. If you like coffee and socializing with others, please sign up for a day, or several days to help make a favorite Sunday morning beverage. If you have questions, please ask Pastor Mike.

 

We Are A Lighthouse Church

There are some United Methodist Churches who have disaffiliated from the United Methodist denomination.  The Leadership Board at Crosspoint has spent time in prayer, research, discernment, and conversation over the past year.  At this time, Crosspoint  will remain a United Methodist Church.  Crosspoint is now a Lighthouse Church. This means that Pastor Mike and some members of the leadership board are attending trainings to help us be ready to welcome United Methodists that may have parted ways from their home churches due to disaffiliation. The trainings are helping us prepare to welcome with open arms those who may be angry, upset, confused, hurt, or otherwise feeling lost. We will continue to be a church that works to Love God, Love Others and Serve others as we grow closer to God and others.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact Pastor Mike, or anyone on the Leadership Board.

 

 

Online Worship adds a YouTube Option
We know worship is an important part of our life of faith.  We also know that not everyone is able to join us for in person worship.  At Crosspoint we offer both in person and online options for worship.  We currently Livestream our worship service on Sunday mornings at 10:30 on www.facebook.com/crosspointumcjacksontownship and https://crosspoint-umc.freeonlinechurch.com/  We are now adding YouTube as an option.  You can follow this link, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHzj5ssDhZfPeAaJYNjnBrg/videos or you can go to YouTube and search CrosspointUMC.  Once on our channel you can subscribe.  By subscribing you can receive updates whenever we go live with a new video.  If you have any questions, you can contact Pastor Mike at 330-696-6231.

 

Giving

Crosspoint relies on the generosity and giving of each of us to continue to support the operation of our facilities and the ministries of our congregation.  Even though our ministries are making adjustments during this time, we will continue to rely on our offering to help us share God’s love in practical ways.  Many share their offering on Sunday while we are in worship together.  Since not everyone is meeting in person, we have made online giving available.  If you wish to make a one-time donation or set up a recurring donation you may do so by following this link (https://crosspointumc.breezechms.com/give/online). You may also mail your donation to the church (9687 Portage St. NW Massillon, Ohio 44646).  If you have any questions about your giving moving forward, please contact Katy Hoffman (330-417-0263). Thank you for your genericity to Crosspoint.
