This week’s team update is a guest post by Chris Williams, one of the Assistant District Superintendents in the Crossroads District.
Additional Easter Reports
Reports from churches across the district have been coming into the district office as pastors have been sharing what God did in their congregation on Resurrection Day. Here are a few highlights:
Pastor Randy Yaryan from Winchester also shared about how they have seen God’s miraculous power over the past several months. Last November, a 17-year-old boy, connected with their church, jumped from a grain silo. The boy ended up with multiple broken bones and the doctors were sure that he wouldn’t live, but if he did he would never be able to walk again. On Easter Sunday this young man walked into church one his own without the assistance of a cane or walker. May we never stop believing in a God who can work miracles and change lives!
It has been great to hear your stories and updates about Easter Sunday. But don’t just wait for special days to share what God is doing in your congregation. We want you to know that we love to hear updates about how God is at work in your church and community. Send your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can celebrate with you.
You are invited to join us at The Crossroads District Conference which will be held on Friday, June 21 and Saturday, June 22 at the Phillippe Performing Arts Center on the campus of Indiana Wesleyan University.
Our Celebration of Ministry Service, where we ordain new ministers and honor those ministers who are retiring, will be held on Friday, June 21 at 7:00 pm. All ordained ministers in the Crossroads District will gather at 6:30 pm for pictures and to line up for the processional into the service.
Our Annual Business Session will be held on Saturday, June 22, 9 am to 4 pm. We will spend time in worship and hear vision updates from our General and District Superintendents. We will also elect officers and discuss General Conference memorials.
