A weekly gathering on Mondays, 10 to 11:30am, beginning March 11, 2019

How do the words of the prophets of the past inform our faith and our actions as a church? This year's study book (produced by the United Church of Canada) is titled "Skeptics" and costs $20 (less as an e-book). Pre-registration by Feb 10 to order a book is important.

Bread of Life - can you help?

This is a group of helpers from Crossroads that serves dinner (organized by the Salvation Army) the last Monday of each month to those in need.
Can you volunteer? Contact the church office or sign up after church.

Refugee News

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. The first refugee family has now arrived in Kingston in early 2016

About the season: Epiphany
When: Epiphany itself occurs on Jan 6 (on the 12th day after Christmas - hence the Christmas song of the same name!). The season lasts either for a week or until Ash Wednesday (March 6 in 2019), the beginning of Lent.
Meaning: "to reveal" - a shining forth of the light of Christ. Often a period for emphasizing the mission of the church.
Colours: White
Event: Traditionally, Epiphany celebrates the arrival of the magi ("wise men"), the first to "reveal" Jesus to the wider world
