Where else are you going to find a furry bunny, an pouty elephant and a chicken-o-hubris at the manger? At Crossroads140. Let’s face it. We’ve heard the gospel according to Holden Caufield, The Wizard of Oz, Romeo and Juliet and Schindler’s List . . . and for the last six weeks we’ve had a live worship artist creating on a huge canvas right in front of the congregation as the whole worship service was taking place . . . so, it’s not surprising that the children’s Christmas pageant was something WAY out of the box. Not at all ordinary, but very special.
We three kings. And this one took it very seriously.
Rachel and Steph were “narrators-with-attitude” and had us all mooing, braying, and bleating “Goat-Boy” from the congregation. How two beautiful high school girls could get totally enthusiastic audience participation? . . . Well, not a surprise.
Margaret Newton, has invested so much life and love into our children’s program. Are you looking for a safe place your precious ones? Margaret’s your girl.
Kudos to Lisa Nibbelink, who kept a corral of excited kids totally quiet and hidden on stage.
Reid’s teaching righted my heart for the Christmas season. Every single Sunday I leave challenged and encouraged and poised to process for days. This day was no different. (see the canvasses on the wall? . . . live art!)
Generations worshipping God together. That’s one thing that I love the most. My own family worships together every Sunday. Four generations. 99 down to 3. What a gift.
So, if you’re looking to put the Christ in your Christmas, you will feel comfy and loved at Crossroads. No pressure, no fuss. Just come check it out. That’s what I did and I never left.
