During these unprecedented times in our nation and as we navigate through the various guidelines from the State, County and CDC in order to slow/limit the spread of COVID-19, Cross Roads will continue to remain up to date on the current situation. We are monitoring the federal and local health agencies, such as CDC and the Texas Department of Health Services for updates and recommendations for the prevention and containment of COVID-19.
Our mission of being a place set apart for people to experience Christ, expand community and help equip leaders has never been more relevant than now. Our prayer, is that time at Cross Roads will be a time of much needed spiritual renewal after such a long period of social distancing and isolation. We ask that you join us in a season of dedicated prayer for our nation, for our state, cities, leaders, ministries, medical professionals, hospitals, as well as for all the people going through health issues or financial setbacks.
