Advent

Advent at Crosstown

Celebrating Advent may look a little different in this pandemic, but it's no less meaningful.  We will partner with you through the season in whatever way you feel comfortable.  There will be events in person, events online, and materials you can use at home.  

HOPE  |  READY  |  JOY  |  LIGHT


Check out our  weekly Advent devotional posts written by Crosstown members in our blog
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”  John 8:12

Advent Bags

Available in the Office
We are excited to come alongside you for this unique Advent season.  We have bags of goodies to help you participate in Advent.  Bags contain Scripture calendars, an Advent devotional written by Crosstown members, treats, and more.

Advent Vespers

Nov 29   online (see below)
We invite you to begin this sacred season with a time of pondering and reflection.  2020 has been a year littered with grief, uncertainty, and division.  Now is the time for us to leave all of this at Jesus' feet and move into the light and hope of Advent.  Come for a time of meditation, prayer, and dedication.

Christmas Eve

Dec 24    online only
Christmas Eve worship at 4:00pm will be offered online only (see below). This will be similar to years past, with lessons and carols, though we will continue to refrain from singing in person. We encourage you to use a candle at home.

Family Advent Prep

November 22    in person, pickup & delivery
Families are invited to prepare for Advent by crafting an Advent wreath! Families will work in nuclear groups. All materials provided. Each family will leave with special "stuff" to help guide them through a meaningful Advent season.
Please RSVP with this form.

Christmas Greeting Video

Debuts Christmas Eve
We hope to collect a quick Christmas greeting video or photo from each part of the Crosstown family.  These will be compiled into a video debuting Christmas Eve.  Please send your video to Josh by Dec 17.

Giving Tree

Due November 20
Instead of purchasing gifts for families in need this year we are collecting gift cards to stock the LNCS social worker.  These gift cards will be distributed by the school to families in need of help.

Ladies Tea

Dec 12  on Zoom
Ladies of all ages are invited to celebrate together. While we are unable to physically gather together to drink tea because of Covid regulations, let’s not miss an opportunity to warm our spirits! Crosstown women are invited to gather for fellowship and spiritual growth. Please join us Zoom for a time of encouraging one another and meditating on God’s WORD.
