At the conclusion of the songs, kids will be dismissed to our kids ministry downstairs, offering age-appropriate classes for children from age 3 through 5th grade; our nursery (for children 2 and under) is open during the entire service. (On the first Sunday of every month, all kids classes are closed.)
Nursing moms are welcome to watch/hear the service from the kitchen at the back of the auditorium. A changing station is located in the restroom across the hall. For other children getting too antsy to sit in the auditorium, the service is shown on the TV in the foyer.

Financial giving is an act of worship for those committed to Crossing’s mission and ministry. If you’d like to find out more about biblical stewardship, please pick up a FREE copy of The Treasure Principle at the little desk by the top of the main stairwell.
We offer 3 simple ways to give financially (regular or one-time):
- Do it online HERE;
- Set up Automatic Bill Pay through your bank;
- Give cash/checks in an offering box (by the auditorium exit), or mail using self-addressed envelopes available at the desk by the stairs.

See you back here on campus next Sunday!
Together, we’re all adjusting to a lifestyle very different from what many of us have ever known. No one is immune to the pressures of job loss, overwhelmed healthcare, and social isolation. We need each other in a special way during this time, and even though we can’t gather together in person, we’re committed to praying, planning, serving, and caring for everyone in the best way we can — because that’s what Jesus would do.
We’re here to serve our community in the following ways:
- Blood drives: Crossing is hosting the American Red Cross for multiple blood drives. Visit the Red Cross HERE for more information and to find out when you can donate at Crossing.
- Facemask drop-off: Crossing is a drop-off location for a local group making and collecting facemasks to be donated to hospitals in our area. To find out more about how to get involved, visit the Facebook group HERE.
- Food pantry drop-off: Crossing is a drop-off location for non-perishable food items to be donated to the food pantry at A Church of Living Hope; for more information, visit their website HERE.
We’re here to equip and encourage believers in the following ways:
- Sunday morning worship services are online every Sunday at 10am. For more information about live streaming a service, click HERE.
- Family Prayer will be live on our Facebook page as well, Sundays at 7pm.

JOIN US IN A SUNDAY MORNING CHURCH-WIDE PRAYER AND WORSHIP INITIATIVE
The church is a people, not a building. So while we’re not gathering publicly Sunday morning, the church will still worship together! Everything you need to facilitate worship in your home is below. Even though we’re apart, join us Sunday morning at 10am as we read the same passages, sing the same songs, and pray the same prayers!

An update on Covid-19 and Crossing
For the time being, Crossing has suspended all public worship gatherings, as well as on-campus ministries and community group activities. We’ll resume as soon as it is possible and safe.
Our pastors, staff, and elders are still praying, planning, and caring for people as much as we can during this unprecedented season. Ministry, small group, and Bible study leaders are working hard as well, in order to keep up connections and find creative ways to keep people encouraged and in the Word. The peace and comfort we have in God’s character and plans, are the best antidote to fear and discouragement.
As we settle into our new “normal,” there are lots of ways you can stay connected, informed, and encouraged:
- SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP SERVICES are live on Facebook at 10am. If you can’t catch it live, the video is available for viewing anytime after as well.
- FAMILY PRAYER will be live on our Facebook page as well, Sundays at 7pm.
- WEDNESDAY’S YET-UNNAMED PODCAST with Tim, Steve, and Jarred is live on Facebook every Wednesday night at 7pm to discuss current events from a pastoral perspective.
- THE CROSSING FAMILY HYMNAL is online here and perfect for singing at home.
- SONGS OF EASTER is our five-week Easter devotional, online here, offering seven songs to encourage us as we consider the person and work of Christ. It includes audio and video links, lyrics, a short devotional, and reflection questions to carry you throughout the week.
If you need to contact someone in the office, you can call 215-968-0276, or email us here.
- A NOTE TO MEMBERS AND REGULAR ATTENDERS: Your continued giving is important as we help people who will be financially impacted by the current crisis, support missionaries and other ministries, and plan to reopen and resume ministry activities as soon as possible. CLICK HERE to give online, or HERE for more information about giving at Crossing.
In the weeks leading up to Easter, we’ll journey through seven songs that have been purposefully selected to point us to the person and work of Christ. There will be one song each week for the first four weeks. During the last week, there are three songs: one for Monday through Thursday, one for Good Friday, and one for Easter Sunday.
The guides are listed below with links to view/download a PDF, as well as links to view the song on Youtube or listen on Spotify. They are also available in print at church on Sundays, and they are being emailed out weekly.
During the last week, all three guides will go out for the week, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday. We hope you enjoy your time in reflection over these next several weeks. Let these songs elevate your thoughts and affections to consider Christ!
- Weekly cleaning — this includes wiping down surfaces and routine cleaning. At times, this happens 2-3 times per week.
- We keep tissues, hand sanitizer, and disinfectant wipes throughout the building.
- A crew disinfects all the children’s toys and play areas, as well as the tables, chairs, and countertops in the nursery and rooms 2 and 3.
- We are asking our guest groups to wipe down the areas they use, and providing them with the products they need to do it.
- In addition to the regular cleaning that we do, we will be giving more attention to handrails, doorknobs, lightswitchs, touchscreens, and keyboards.
- On Sunday mornings before you arrive, our we’re sanitizing all the most frequently touched surfaces.
- We have placed hand sanitizing lotion pumps at the Welcome Desk, the Son Country Desk, the kitchen in the East Wing, the upstairs kitchen, the main auditorium, and the snack area. (It helps if you leave them in those locations and don’t move them.)
- We are asking all of our Sunday morning refreshment volunteers to wear gloves when they prepare our snacks and coffee.
- Let’s all follow my son Owen’s example and move to fist bumping instead of hand shaking for a while.
- Wash your hands — a lot. It’s more effective than hand sanitizer, of which supplies are scarce and limited. But soap and water are readily available.
- Lay off the news. Only check your fav news source once a day maybe. Remember, they are more interested in keeping your coming back to their web site again and again than they are in giving you a balanced, factual report on any given situation.
- Wash your hands.
- Memorize key verses about fear and faith. Like Psalm 94:19. It’s a wonderful verse! “Whenever I am anxious and worried, you comfort me and make me glad.” (Good News Translation) The best way to learn something is to teach it. So memorize verses with your children or spouse or in your SG or bible study.
- Wash your hands. (remember that repitition emphasizes a key point of the author!!)
- Confess your fear or your dishonoring heart attitude to a friend and ask them to pray with you about it.
- If you really want to get poked in the eye, read this article of the faith and example of the Chinese church. It will challenge you to consider your own faith and how the virus is effecting it.
All for now. Keep the faith. Wash your hands. I’ll fist bump you on Sunday!
