First Christian & The Crossing Family:
In cooperation with guidance from Federal, State and Local
leaders and health officials, First Christian Church and The Crossing have
decided to open our facilities for public worship beginning Sunday,
May 24. We are grateful for God’s mercy and protection in allowing public
worship gatherings to resume. To ensure your safety, social distancing
practices will be in place at both campuses. While we are anxious to be
reunited as the Body of Christ, it is imperative that everyone considering
worshipping at First Christian Church or The Crossing be aware of and
adhere to these directives. You will notice new procedures in our
children’s ministry, lobby, and worship center. Below is an overview of the
“new normal” at First Christian and The Crossing. If you have questions,
please call 336-996-7388 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We
will continue to stream our worship services online, so if you are not
quite ready to return to public gatherings yet, be sure to worship online
