The mission of the Meals Ministry is to provide complete meals for those who attend CrossView Church after surgeries, illnesses, accidents, new births, or family losses. CVC families prepare and deliver hot meals to the family in need at no cost to the church. The goal is to meet the family's needs for meals while connecting them with Christians from our church during their time of transition or crisis. If you are in need or if you know someone that is, or if you can occasionally make a meal for someone in our church family, please contact the church office.
CROSSVIEW CHURCH E-PRAYER CHAIN
The CVC E-Prayer Chain is a ministry that serves others through the power of prayer. Prayer requests that come into the Church Office are, upon approval, released to a group of faithful servants via e-mail. This group of individuals is committed to praying for the requests that come in on a daily basis. These requests range from health concerns, relationships, spiritual issues, financial concerns, etc. for CVC attenders and families, and their broader network (neighbors, co-workers, relatives, etc.) If you would like to serve as an intercessor for your brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus by having your name and email address added to our E-Prayer Chain, please contact the Church Office by phone (847-395-4117) or email at email@example.com.
You may have heard that Facebook is going to show less from business pages and more from our friends and family. This means we will see less from pages whose updates we actually want to see. The new algorithm has been known to reduce interaction by 95%. Out of the almost 250 followers of the CVC page, only 30-some people are actually receiving the CrossView posts. So if you want to continue to receive news from the CVC FB page in your newsfeed, there are two things you can do:
- Go to the CVC page and make sure you have "Following" checked. That's the basic to step to be seeing our posts at all. But also, it may be helpful to select "See First" under following.
- Comment, like, and share. The more you do this, the more Facebook sees us as a "legitimate" page and the less likely we will be buried in invisibility with their new algorithms.
BAPTISM AND MEMBERSHIP
The 2nd Sunday of each month has been designated as ‘Baptism Sunday.’ If you have questions or are considering taking this next important step in your faith, please call the church office to make an appointment to meet with Pastor David or indicate your interest to be baptized on a Welcome Card and place in the offering plate.
If you have been considering becoming a member of CrossView Church, please contact the church office for an application which explains the process for becoming a member or you may contact Pastor David or an Elder with any questions.
