If you are in the Eastern half of the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area and are looking for a church to attend for Christmas, I would highly recommend either of the following churches. Eagle Brook has the North covered, and Crossroads covers the South side. Both churches will have fantastic services where Jesus will be the focus. If you have friends or families, bring them along too! Both churches use a ticketing system to help have a better distribution of attendance through all their services so everyone can get a seat. No cost for the tickets, just a way to help them in their planning. Tickets are not mandatory, but it is appreciated if you can utilize this system.

Crossroads Church in Cottage Grove, MN

Christmas Service Times: Saturday at 5 pm (December 23), Sunday at 9 & 11 am, 4 & 6 pm, and midnight.

Tickets: in order to alleviate overcrowding we’ve gone to a FREE ticket system. Please take as many tickets (at the Info Table) as needed for the service you’re planning on attending. As of right now, all service times are open. We’ll keep you posted.

Serving Opportunities: We still need dozens of volunteers to help with things like parking lot attendants, ushers, greeters, and nursery workers. We’ll have many guests attending Crossroads this special weekend and we need our regulars to acts as hosts to make them feel welcome. An insert with the needs is in this week’s program.

Invites: Once again we have special Invite Cards to use as a simple tool to hand to those you’d like to invite. People ARE looking for a church to attend on Christmas Eve. We’d LOVE for them to attend here. We’ve put more creative energy into this service than any in the past. People will be touched and moved by the Nativity story. Please don’t miss this opportunity to impact a life. We also have E-Invites you can send via our web site: www.crossroadschurch.cc.

Prayer Changes Everything: We believe that…and that’s why we’re having a 24 hour prayer vigil starting on Friday morning, December 23. If you can come in for 20 minutes or so and pray for God’s Spirit to move and work through our Christmas Eve services, we’d be so pleased! Sign ups are at the booth right outside the Sanctuary in the Lobby. We also want to invite you to pray during one of our 6 services. A special room has been designated and info is available at the booth mentioned above.
