We're looking to raise 1,000+ prayer partners who will commit to praying for us regularly.  Will you join us ...and be an answer to our prayers?

Prayer Partnership

As a new Anglican church in Salem, MA, we are asking God for 1,000+ people
to pray for us.
Here's how you can be praying this week:
 
Give thanks for the prayers God has already answered.
God has helped several friends to recovery from both major and minor surgeries, has provided short term housing and financial resources for a number of folks, and he has been experienced by many of our supporters in very difficult times and situations recently. 

Ask God for comfort for our friends at Grace Anglican (Newport, NH).
Bob Brochu, the Lay Pastor at Grace Anglican Church (where the Drummond family spent a year and half), and a steady presence in the Anglican Diocese of New England since its inception several years ago has died this week. Please pray for his wife Jan and their family, and for the community both at Grace Anglican and in the diocese who are mourning the loss of a dear friend. 

Ask God to provide the financial support that Crossroads Church needs. 
 Pray that those who receive our appeal letters will respond as generously as they are able, and that thanksgiving and blessing would abound as the givers see God at work, and we receive God's love and provision through the gift. We are asking for fools to support the ministry of Crossroads Church and are working toward raising funds specifically for the Leadership Team (more on that after the holidays).


 
 
Greetings in this most blessed season of Advent, when we prepare our hearts for the arrival of Jesus - and often discover him in most unexpected places and ways.


We are in the process of sending out our first ever financial appeal letter. It's awesome to have 147 people on our prayer team, and to be developing our networks of friends and supporters. We are so thankful for Christ the Redeemer Anglican Church in Danvers, MA who has partnered with us financially and in numerous other ways from the very beginning of our life together. We're also thankful to those of you who have contributed financially to Crossroads Church this past year.  God has blessed us through your gift. He's also provided us with a very generous group - the 15 or so of us tithe nearly $900/month, which is a testament to God's work in our lives! 

If you are interested in reading the full letter please find it here. (Some of you will be receiving a copy in the mail; if you'd like us to send you one, simply respond to this email, and I'll make sure to get one to you).  In the meantime, please pray for us and with us as we bravely ask for financial partnership from individuals and churches. Pray that those who receive our letters would respond to God and give out of a sense of joy and thanksgiving for God's work and that God would in return bless them. 

We truly feel loved and cared for through your prayers and appreciate you! God uses all sorts of gifts - time, talents and treasures - to continue His work and we can't thank you enough. 

May the Light of Christ SHINE in and around and through you the rest of this Advent season!

Jennifer
