Calling all singers!
Be part of an informal summer music group without committing to a separate night to rehearse. Our Summer Choir meets at 9:45am on Sundays to learn an easy choral number to sing during the service which follows. Even if you only have one Sunday available, that's fine too. Prior choir experience is definitely not a requirement (or bring an instrument - we'll fit you in!). Open to all ages (and no hot gowns to wear)!
Next steps for Crossroads - calling a new minister
With the retirement of Rev. Bill at the end of June, 2017, Crossroads has begun the process to call a new minister. That process started with the formation of a committee called a JNAC (Joint Needs Assessment Committee) to put together a report outlining the priorities for the pastoral needs of the congregation. This report was approved by the congregation on June 4, 2017 and subsequently approved by our overseeing body, Four Winds Presbytery. At the congregational meeting, a Joint Search Committee was elected, and the committee has now begun its search.
New Sounds in Worship
Come join us as we make our 10:30am Sunday worship accessible to all ages with an approachable contemporary style. Our alternative music ensemble features Tyson Sullivan and Cam Moses on acoustic guitar joined by woodwinds, and keyboard.
Watch for their next appearance!
If you're an instrumentalist, why not consider joining our group?

Crossroads is a partner in the West Kingston Refugee Partnership (WKRP). Our church is working with the Islamic Centre of Kingston and Edith Rankin, St. Andrew's-by-the-lake, Cataraqui, and Cooke's-Portsmouth United Churches to help bring at least two refugee families to Kingston and to raise funds and provide support as they establish themselves in our community.
June 2016 update: The first refugee family has now arrived in Kingston.

About the season: Pentecost
When: Pentecost Sunday falls on June 4 in 2017. The weeks following are either known as the Pentecost season or "Ordinary Time"
About the Date: Pentecost means "fifty days" and occurs 7 Sundays after Easter (fifty days when Easter day itself is included).
Meaning: Traditionally celebrated as the birthday of the church, when the risen Christ appeared to a group of dispirited and fearful apostles after the crucifixion. It represents the renewal of purpose and an emphasis on God's ongoing work in the world through the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, sometimes represented by images of flame and wind.
