Crossroads Presbyterian Church in Middletown will add a second worship service on Sunday mornings at 10:45 a.m., starting Oct. 25, in addition to their 9 a.m. service.

Shortly after Crossroads began gathering in person again in July, attendance quickly reached capacity, necessitating a waiting list and leaving some unable to attend.

Crossroads Presbyterian Church at 627 Vance Neck Road, Middletown, will add a second worship service on Sunday mornings at 10:45 a.m., starting Oct. 25.

While their sanctuary typically seats around 300, Crossroads has capped attendance at less than half that number to maintain proper distance between families. Numerous COVID-related guidelines have been instituted by the church to ensure those attending feel safe.

“We’ve been encouraged by a number of current members and new visitors seeking to attendin-person.In difficult times, the importance of the church community becomes even more evident.” Josh Guzman, Crossroads’ senior pastor, said in a press release. “We want to welcome as many people as possible to worship and find refuge in Jesus Christ.”

The pastoral staff is preaching through a series called, “Joseph: Kept by God,” exploring the latter chapters of the book of Genesis.

Those who want to attend must RSVP for one of the services at crossroadsde.com. A short video showing what to expect is also available on their website. The 9 a.m. service is livestreamed on the church’s Facebook page and YouTube channel.

Crossroads Presbyterian Church is at 627 Vance Neck Road, Middletown.
