This week’s team update is a guest post by Chris Williams, one of the Assistant District Superintendents in the Crossroads District.
Celebrating the Resurrection
Yesterday, Christians all over the world celebrated Easter, the victory of God over the evil one. As Christ-followers, we celebrate the resurrection because it is the day when death, hell, and the grave were defeated and victory was made possible for us through Jesus Christ.
Some of our Crossroads District churches have been reporting on what God did yesterday as their congregation celebrated the resurrection and lifted up the person of Jesus. Here are a few of the reports we’ve received in the district office:
We’d love to hear updates about what happened at your church as you lifted up Christ on Easter Sunday. Send your celebration stories to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Continue to Pray for Ministers Recovering from Surgery
Rev. Tim McClellan, the senior pastor at Lakeview Church in Marion, had surgery last week to remove cancer. He is still in the hospital recovering from surgery and waiting to learn the next steps of his treatment plan. Please continue to lift up Pastor Tim, Cynthia, and the Lakeview congregation during this time.
Rev. Chuck McCallum, a retired minister in the Crossroads District and former pastor of Westview Wesleyan Church in Jonesboro, had surgery on Saturday to correct a 90% blockage they found in his carotid artery. The surgery was successful and Rev. McCallum is likely to be released from the hospital early this week. Your continued prayers are appreciated.
