Where? What? When?

Active Adults Ministry

The Active Adults (ages 50 and older) have planned a trip to Portage Lake Front and River Walk on Thursday, August 22nd. They will be meeting at the church at 4:00 pm and carpooling from there. A main dish of chicken will be provided. Please bring along a side dish to share and your own table service. Also, consider bringing crayons or markers which will be donated to Hilltop Childcare.

Griefshare Seminar

It hurts to lose someone. Find help at our free Griefshare seminar! Griefshare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside of you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. Griefshare is a free 13-week seminar that meets on Thursday nights from 6:30-8:00 pm. Each week brings a new stand alone video and time of discussion that will help give you the coping skills and actions you need to take moving forward. Call the church office to register at (219) 464-3350 or sign up on Sundays at the Welcome Center in the lobby.

You can also sign-up at the Welcome Center on Sundays or by calling the church office at (219) 464-3350.

Valparaiso Popcorn Parade

There are many areas to help with this year’s Popcorn Parade. We can always use more volunteers to help build the float. No experience is needed (call the church office for details). We are also looking for people to walk or ride on the float and hand out flyers at the parade. We have begun accepting donations of individually wrapped candy to pass out at the parade. There are baskets located in the lobby for donations. This year’s parade will be held on Saturday, September 7th.

Annual Fall Festival

This year’s annual Fall Festival will be held on Saturday, September 28th from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm. CrossPointe members are encouraged to volunteer by signing up to help at the Welcome Center. We are also looking for candy donations for the festival. This year’s event will have bounce houses, pony rides, carnival games, free food and much more! This is a free event (attendees are encouraged to bring along a donation of canned goods) to be given to local food pantries. Make sure to invite a friend to this exciting event!
