Worship Set: Nov. 23 & 24, '13

AH - - - - Double, quadruple shucks! We said goodbye to Chris Z this weekend! BUT, we are SO thrilled for him & his family's next chapter of ministry! Chris is heading back to a worship leader position at the church he grew up in! Chris will be leading worship at the Vineyard of the Rockies south campus. His team includes people he's know for many, many years. He's made a huge mark at Crossroads & this team LOVES him. There are not many like him. We'll miss you @BigPapaZick :D xo <3IMG_1992 ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
