And join us on the 3rd(ish) Saturday of the month for social and service activities. If you consider yourself a “young adult”, come on out!

Tickets are $12 ($5 from every ticket sold will help benefit The House DC, which aims to transform and empower the lives of inner city youth and their families through Jesus, by giving them hope, a productive future, and a changed community; the House DC seeks to meet the physical & spiritual needs of youth in Anacostia and beyond).

Small Group—Covenant Bible Study

This Covenant experience will guide participants in a comprehensive, in-depth study of the Bible over twenty-four weeks, in three sets of eight weeks. Unlike the learning you may have experienced in other groups, this in-depth study of the whole Bible emphasizes the biblical concept of covenant as a unifying pattern through all the books in the Old and New Testaments. It underscores the unique relationship that God chooses to have with us as God’s people. This relationship is grounded in the faithfulness of God’s love and on our ongoing commitment to stay in love with God while we share signs of that love with others.

The first eight-week session—Creating–begins in late September and will finish up by Thanksgiving. As of now, two small group sessions are scheduled, though if you are interested in a different time and another place (such as a home), please contact Pastor Mochel.

Sundays, 6 to 7:30 p.m.

Mondays, 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

The cost of the participant’s guides is $50 for all three, or $17.50 for one of the eight week sessions. Payment will be collected at the first meeting.

This Is Your Church: A Conversation

Slide1

June 14, 11 a.m.

Everyone, youth and adult, is encouraged to join together after worship on June 14 for an important gathering over lunch, at 11 a.m. in the sanctuary.

We will discuss and learn about the mission, vision, and values of Christ Crossman and how God is calling us to be and make disciples of Jesus Christ, sharing the ways we organize and fund this ministry, especially with the opportunity for each of us to grow and serve together. The support and participation of all is needed as we continue to move forward faithfully and sustainably.

Child care and supervision is provided

 

Bake Auction

Bring a baked good for the auction, or come to purchase your favorite holiday treats.  One hundred percent of the proceeds go to the summer 2015 youth mission trips.

Angel Tree

Please take an ornament from the angel tree in support of the residents of Christ House. The ornaments describe the requests for needed items.  Donations will be collected through Sunday, Dec. 14.
