These are all drive thru collection sites
  • be prepared for lines about 1-2 hrs. 
  • Windows must remain up during the drive thru until told to lower the window.  
  • Everyone in vehicle must be able to be tested or it seems to cause set backs. 
 
There are three tents to drive thru.  
  • First, screening to be asked questions and symptoms. 
  • Second, information tent for name,  address,  telephone number to receive test results at.  
  • Third,  the swabbing tent, thru nose to throat. 
 
Just bare in mind some will be turned away if they don’t have symptoms or if they don’t meet the criteria for the questions. 
 
Hopefully this helps and people aren’t afraid to come. 
 
Best,
 
Ashley Almendarez


Covid-19 Letter from Pastor Tommy

Dear Cross Family,

We have been following the news about COVID-19 very closely and its effects globally and locally in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. Inasmuch as we walk by faith and not by sight, we walk in the collective wisdom of all that is available to us.

We have been urged by Federal and Local authorities to begin implementing social distancing measures in order to slow the spread of the virus. It is our prayer that these measures will prove profitable and move us more quickly to resuming our normal activities. Until then, here are a few important updates.

  • Worship Service

We will move to an all online format for this week. We will be broadcasting live on Sunday at 10:30am. (CLICK HERE to watch the service live OR on Facebook HERE– and a replay of the service will be archived to watch anytime in the future). We will re-evaluate this plan on a weekly basis.

  • Giving Online

Because giving is an act of worship in response to the generosity of our God, for those who do not already give online, we want to make sure you are able to give online by clicking HERE . It is your generosity that enables us to bring the message of hope to our local community and the watching world.
