Message for folks who come to the Wednesday night Fellowship Dinner: This week there will be no prepared meal here at the church. Please stop and pick up your family’s dinner and bring it to the church to eat. There will still be fellowship time, drinks available, and a King Cake for dessert.

Natasha Clapaniuc (kla-pa-NYUK) directs the Restoration Department of Beginning of Life in Moldova where she has served for 14 years. Her ministry includes the House of Change, a rehabilitation and restoration center for girls and women who have been trafficked and sexually exploited. She also co-directs the camp Global Women teams have participated in for the past 5 years. Global Women has supported the work of Beginning of Life for nine years.

Natasha will be our guest at Crosscreek during the Wednesday evening service, March 12. She and Cindy Dawson will share stories from this work going on through Beginning of Life. Come and meet this amazing woman and learn how God is using Crosscreek’s support of Global Women to touch and encourage lives of women in Moldova through the efforts of Natasha and Beginning of Life.

Important Information for Crosscreek Members:

1. Each Sunday we have a person who sits in our foyer to welcome folks who come to the service late, or to ensure that the building is locked (with the exception of the Sanctuary doors) for the protection of our little ones. Recently we have found that folks are unlocking the doors from the inside to exit when they are not staying for church. Please, if you must leave after the doors have been secured and locked in the middle and far end of the building, exit through the sanctuary doors. The locked doors are an important part of our Children & Youth Safety Policy which we adher to for the safety of our children.

2. Please join us for our Ash Wednesday service this week, March 12, at 6:15 pm in the sanctuary. There will be no childrens or youth activities this Wednesday so that all of us can attend the service. This is a lovely and very meaningful service at Crosscreek, and you will want to be a part of it. We will be distributing Lenten devotional guides in which the daily devotions have been written by some of our members.

3. The Yarn Ministry will be welcoming representatives of the Pathway Ministry tonight when we meet at 5:30 pm. Bring your projects, finished and otherwise. Anything that is complete can go with Liz and Jennifer, and anything that isn’t can be worked on (and Janica will answer any questions you may have). We discussed exciting plans last week for a group project, so be sure to join us tonight to learn how you can participate!

Our children are excited about presenting to you a Missions Fair on Wednesday, March 19, following the Fellowship Meal. The children of the M&M (Music & Missions) class will lead the adults through a missions learning experience, complete with games, crafts, and stories. The children will even have some crafts for sale, with all proceeds going to the Crosscreek Missions fund. This is a night you won’t want to miss!
