Crossway Menifee Church Update 3/18/2020
Hello everyone, we wanted to give you an update of where we are as a church in regards to the recents parameters placed upon us by our state government due to the Coronavirus. We want to exercise wisdom and care as we shepherd the flock as it relates to our Sunday services and our Mid-week gatherings.
Boulder Ridge School
As I mentioned last Sunday, we will not be able to meet together at Boulder Ridge School until further notice. However, we will continue to livestream our 10:30am Sunday service. Pastor Joe and our music ministry team members will continue to lead us in song.
If you have Facebook you should like our Crossway Menifee Church page. We would encourage to follow us on Facebook and we can join together in worship. If you do not have a Facebook account to access our church page - you can still access the livestream by going to facebook.com/crosswaymenifee or you can also go to our church website at crosswaymenifee.org

Also, if you of anyone who may be in need, please let us know. If you need someone to get you groceries, run an errand, or you need a ride - please contact the church office.
Our elders and deacons will be making phone calls to check in and see how you are doing.
Prayer Gathering at Church Property
Due to the restrictions handed down by our state and federal leaders, we will have to reschedule our gathering at the church property until further notice.
Men’s and Women’s Growth Groups
Beginning next week, our Men’s and Women’s Growth Groups will continue our study through the Book of Acts. We will livestream both the Tuesday Ladies Study at 9:30am(PST) and we will livestream the Men’s Study on Thursday at 7:00pm(PST) on our church Facebook page. We will be in Acts 19, which is Lesson 17 in your workbook.
Family and Children Resources
We have created a family group in Planning Center to make our Sunday School resources available for you. Each week we will send you the information you can download and use in family devotions for your family.
Financial Needs and Giving
We are trusting God to meet the needs at Crossway Menifee. Thank you for your faithfulness through financial support that allows us to continue the Gospel ministry of Jesus Christ. At present, we are going to continue our financial support of our missionaries and para-church ministries. We do of course have costs and bills that we have as a church fellowship, so we would ask you to pray about continuing to give.
Since we will not be meeting together physically for a few weeks - there are a few options for you to continue to contribute to the ministry…
Drop off at Church Office - The Church Office will continue to be open Monday-Thursday from 9:00am-5:00pm.

Praise and Worship Time - Tomorrow, March 18th at 3:00pm on Facebook Live
Pastor Joe and myself are going to have a time of praise and worship tomorrow afternoon - March 19th on our church Facebook page at 3:00pm. We invite you to join us!
The one thing that I will miss the most - is the gathering of the Saints together on Sunday mornings. There is that old saying that “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.” And indeed that statement is true.
We will need to be a little creative as we continue to disciple one another and share the gospel with other.
We will continue to monitor the situation, keep you informed, pray for wisdom, and continue to preach the gospel on Sunday mornings and throughout the week.
Know that we are praying for you and we are here for you. God is faithful.
