Crossroads Christian Church Hosts Easter Worship Services at New Ford Center [Gallery & Poll]
Before Crossroads Christian Church became the giant fixture off Epworth Road in Newburgh that it is today, it was Cullen Avenue Christian Church. Only a handful of attendees soon grew into five church services. In the early 1990s, it was decided that Easter Sunday should be spent as a full congregation and so Easter services were moved to the Vanderburgh County Auditorium.
Within only a few years, Easter service outgrew the Auditorium and in 1995, Roberts Stadium became the new home of Crossroads' Easter gathering. Until only last year, church-goers from all over the tri-state worshiped within the stadium but due to the recent closing, services were again moved to the brand new Ford Center.
According to Elaine Sollars, an original member of the Cullen Avenue Christian Church and current worship team member, "Moving to the Ford center went very smoothly and around 9,000 members and visitors alike enjoyed a two hour worship experience complete with an orchestra, big band, four choirs ranging in ages 3-adult and a drama presentation. A 35 minute pre-service concert allowed each of the choirs and various groups to praise and worship instead of the normal rotations."
"Davie Reinhart, music pastor chose selections ranging from an a capella arrangement, big band sound, traditional and contemporary to please the wide range of worshipers. The message on the doubting Thomas was uplifting and encouraging presented by Senior Pastor Ken Idleman."
