All religious traditions emphasize the importance of sacred spaces, places set aside as holy and used for worship, prayer, meditation, and rituals. Christians have churches, Jews have synagogues, Muslims have mosques, and Buddhists and Hindus have temples, and other religions have theirs as well. Click here to read more.

KNOWN: Heads Up

Rev. Ron Kral preaching; Worship Team at 9:30 a.m.
The Lord said to Moses, “I have known you by name.” (Exodus 33:17) We are created with a deep desire to be known—by God and by others. How do we get to know each other and the God who cares for us all? We can make room and take time to show God’s love to one another and our community. This summer at Crossroads—come be known, share your stories, and let your light shine!
