Crossroads Presbyterian Church adding second service
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.
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.
