ALL CHURCH

Serving Opportunity: Connections Ministry -- We are looking for individuals to partner with us in our new Connections Ministry. This ministry is geared toward helping others find connections during our weekend services. We have several areas for you to plug into, so if you're interested, stop by the Information Central in our outdoor lobby to find a full list of available service opportunities.

RightNow Media: We are excited to introduce RightNow Media, an online library of over 10,000 biblical video resources for your personal study, marriage enrichment, leadership development, small groups, finances, and more. There are also over 2,000 kids' videos to help your children understand their faith. If you have not yet received an email from us inviting you to use this free resource, please write us at info@lifeatcrossroads.org so that we can get you an invitation to set up your account.

Baby Bottle Boomerang: Don't forget to pick up your bottle to fill with change! All proceeds will go to the Santa Clarita Valley Pregnancy Center. You can grab a bottle today from one of the carts at the Main Campus and the South Campus. Please bring your filled bottle back to the cart by Father's Day, June 19.

Office Volunteer Opportunity: Crossroads Church is seeking volunteers to serve as receptionists in our church offices Monday to Thursday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Actual volunteer hours and days are flexible based on your availability. Contact Lorraine Solomon at lsolomon@lifeatcrossroads.org for more information.


GO MINISTRY

Go Partner Spotlight: This month our Go Partner spotlight is on the Malakars. Peter and Heather are missionaries to India, serving in the capital city of New Delhi. Peter and Heather have several major ministries, including building relationships with university students through teaching English and providing medical services to the underprivileged of India. Not only does Peter serve as the doctor overseeing the medical clinic, but he also serves as the pastor of the Capital Bible Church. They also recently purchased a music academy, as a way to reach out to the community, as well as a place to hopefully begin language classes. Pray for the Malakar family as they seek to share Christ in a country and culture dominated by Hinduism.


STUDENT MINISTRY
