Crossroads Christian
Groups, Growth &
Connecting Points
Every Wednesday at Crossroads is Chapel Day
when we gather for a time of worship and often
parents join us. A recent theme was service,
the 8th grade presented several short skits to
demonstrate what service looks like followed
by a “Bible Challenge” game as the Jr. High
students competed to find verses that talk
about serving others. For the younger children,
Kindergarten teacher, Jeanne Lerch, used a
carved pumpkin to explain how sin can dim the
light that should shine forth from each of
us. For more information or to schedule a visit,
call 908-735-5501 or visit our website

up, and out. Three types of groups are offered:
