Important Dates:
Mondays-Thursday 9:00 a.m. to Noon – Food Pantry Collection at CrossLife Office Building
Saturdays beginning at 9:00 a.m. – Food Pantry Open for Families in Need
Monday, July 13 – Wednesday, July 15 – BOLT Virtual VBS
Sunday, August 9 – Promotion Sunday

CrossLife Church will resume in-person Worship Services on Sunday, June 7 at the adjusted time of 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. with limited capacity. However, Preschool and Elementary classes of any kind will not resume until Promotion Sunday. For a comprehensive list of our re-opening plan click here.

We’re encouraging all Small Group leaders to connect with students via Zoom, or another outlet if preferred. We want to make sure families feel remembered, plugged in and encouraged during this time of social distancing, especially since they will be entering a new class on Promotion Sunday when they return. Amanda has sent out an instruction video on how to use Zoom. If you have any addition questions, please reach out to her at [email protected]

If families are looking for ways to spend their summer, encourage them to register for BOLT Virtual VBS at While we won’t be gathered together in person, our VBS lessons can be watched at home, and they are more than just videos. Kids will get in the backyard to play games, they’ll learn to master origami, and they’ll compete in Daily Challenges for their team color. It’s different than what we’ve ever done before, but it’s going to be jammed pack with the same amount of fun!

If you are not planning to return to a position of Elementary Leadership, please let me know at [email protected].


Do you have any praises and prayer requests you would like to share with us? Do you have any changes to the prayer requests that we have listed? Please let us know of your changes or requests in E.L.I.S. or fill out a Weekly Care Ministry Report.


Debbie Ward’s father has passed away. He was recently diagnosed with Covid-19 and decided he no longer wanted to continue dialysis. Debbie’s desire was that if it was her father’s time, he go without suffering. Please pray for her family as they grieve his passing.

Please pray for the sick, for our country’s leadership, for those who have lost their jobs, and pray that within this hard time many would be pointed back to the Lord.

Please pray for our Awana leader Audrey Dunst as her family makes decisions for their future after their house burned down last month.

Please keep the son of Annette Moody, another Awana leader, in your prayers. Max is healing from pancreatitis and gallstones.

Please pray for Susan Bailey, who runs our resource room, and her whole family as they grieve the passing of her mother.

Please continue to pray for the Reyes’ family and their son Brandon who was in a bad motorcycle accident.

Please pray for healing for Rocio Bolanos’ inflamed spine which has caused a great deal of pain. Ask God to give the doctors wisdom in their treatment.

Please, also pray for Rocio’s godmother, Olga, who has cancer and for Olga’s family.

Please continue to pray for Brenda Baran’s father’s health. Ask the Lord to keep his heart healthy and strong.

Please pray David Taylor and his family. David’s mother passed away last week.

Bert Rogers has returned to the hospital. They fear he may have an infection post surgery, and he has been experiencing much pain. Please continue to lift up the Rogers family in your prayers. This has been a year of many ups and downs.


46 children have been registered for Virtual VBS so far. One family even registered after moving abroad! While this is still much lower than our typical VBS attendance, we are excited to see how many more God brings to CrossLife in the next month. We hope the personal setting of VBS this year makes an impact on the personal decisions made by children and their parents alike.
