Opportunities for Reaching Out
Dear CrossRoads Family,
Thanks to all of you who came out last Sunday for our annual CrossRoads Connecting picnic and baptism service! It was a beautiful day to celebrate all that God is doing in the life of our church.
Although we won't be having another picnic this week, we're still focusing our attention on "connecting people to Jesus Christ and His family", which is a key part of our purpose statement and the main point of our current study of the book "Just Walk Across the Room" by Bill Hybels. Hopefully you've already had the chance to reach out to someone this week….and if not, pray that God gives you the opportunity!
Speaking of opportunities, I'd like you to know about three things that are coming up:
1. FUSION "IMPACT": Beginning this Sunday evening from 6-8 p.m. (and continuing every other Sunday), we're inviting all youth (grades 6-12) to come and experience the "Impact" that comes from being a Christ-follower. We'll be meeting at Mt. Tabor, and Brandon Donaldson () will be leading a time of fellowship, fun, and Bible Study. And yes, there will be pizza…
2. MEN'S MINISTRY: Plans are taking shape for a new year of activities! Paul Fontenot () is now heading up the ministry, as John Irvin is in the process of moving. Thank you, John for doing a great job with this ministry! One thing that will be a priority for our men (and our whole church) over the next several weeks will be our Living Nativity coming up in December. We need men to help build the set (town of Bethlehem, etc.), and we'll be meeting on Saturday mornings to do the construction. If you can help, please contact John Donaldson () or Kurt Koch ().
3. "I Still Do" MARRIAGE CONFERENCE: This is a powerful and practical one day marriage event sponsored by Family Life ministries. It's being held at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C. on Saturday, October 4th. Greg and Sabrina Michalov () are coordinating plans for anyone who would like to go, and there is a "Buy One, Get One Free" ticket offer that expires on September 22nd. If you're interested, contact Greg and/or go to istilldo.com.
Well, that's it for now. Have a blessed Friday…and I'm looking forward to seeing you on Sunday!
