“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6
Media Director for Cross Church
Out of an abundance of caution, Cross Church will be suspending our mid-week programs for the remainder of March 2020.
-Zumba (Monday Nights)
-Kids Club (Tuesday Nights)
-Pastor’s Prayer (Tuesday Nights)
-Koinonia Class (Was supposed to start Wednesday, March 18)
-Senior’s Ministry (Thursdays)
-Band Practice (Thursdays)
-Youth Ministry (Friday Nights)
-The Women's Ministry bake sale originally scheduled for April 5th is also postponed
We will be assessing the situation on a day-to-day basis before we decide to launch programs again.
Is there church this Sunday?
We have been in contact with medical professionals and are following directives put out by the Province of Manitoba and our leadership believes at this time that holding services with extra precautions is a low-risk activity. We will update you if this changes. As a precaution, we won't be shaking hands throughout the gatherings, temporarily closing down our café and providing hand sanitizing stations.
When Should I stay home?
If you are sick, coughing or have a mild fever or anyone else in your household is sick, please stay home until you are healthy and no longer experiencing symptoms. Practice good hand washing techniques and take care of yourselves.
If you've recently traveled or been in contact with someone who traveled in the last two weeks, please stay home.
If you feel uncomfortable attending, please stay home.
If you miss, you can always catch our podcast to stay up to date with our sermons at www.crosschurch.ca/listen
We are working on a solution to get a video copy of this week's service available on Sunday via youtube- http://bit.ly/39P7puR
We encourage you to inform yourself of the day-to-day happenings with this situation and make a decision that is right for you and your family.
What about Giving?
We especially need your financial support right now. We encourage you to continue with your tithes and offerings so Cross Church can serve our community during this unsteady time. We want to be a light to the world! Here are your options for giving:
1. Give as usual on Sunday morning
2. E-transfer- From your banking app, send your donation to [email protected] in a separate email, send us your password answer. We like e-transfers because there are no fees associated with them.
3. Donate online to www.crosschurch.ca/give
4. Mail your donation to PO Box 51066 RPO Tyndall Park, Winnipeg, MB R2X 3C6
5. Drop by the church in-person during office hours (M-F 9-5)
The uncertainty of this outbreak is creating anxiety in our workplaces, schools, and day-to-day activities. Yet we remain certain of God’s steadfast presence and careful attention to all that is happening. Please join us in praying for those who are affected by this illness, as well as their caregivers and those who are working around the clock to minimize the impact of this virus.
In Psalm 46, we are reminded that it is God who is our refuge and strength, and our ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, let us not fear, but with confidence use this opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus through our prayers and our care for others.

Join Us This Weekend!
1787 Logan Avenue
We have 2 Gatherings every Sunday. We find we are running out of space, so be sure to arrive a few minutes early to get a view of our campus, check your kids into The Kingdom and grab a cup of coffee.
The first 20 minutes or so of our gatherings are dedicated to music, singing, and worshipping God. We like a more modern approach to church music- guitars and drums will be present, so expect some noise. Then we hear a message from Pastor Alan. Expect it to last about 70 minutes.
