A Portrait of CrossRoads

Posted by bbullis on April 10, 2015

Dear CrossRoads Family,

I just saw on Facebook that it is National Siblings Day, so I thank God for you as my brothers and sisters in Christ.  What a wonderful family He has given us!  ("I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,…", Philippians 1:3).

Last Sunday's Easter celebration was a tremendous blessing, both at the sunrise service on the property and at C. Milton Wright for our regular service.  Thanks to the many folks who worked so hard to make the entire day a success…in particular to John Donaldson and Kurt Koch for building the tomb! 

The "Portraits of the Passion" monologues were also wonderful as we took an "eyewitness" look at the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus!  Thanks to Jonathan Snow (Peter), Jill Ball (the woman anointing Jesus' feet), Bonnie Anderson (the woman who confronted Peter), Dave Reiher (Pilate), Jim Nelson (Barabbas),  Regina Ray (Dinah, a witness in the crowd on Palm Sunday), Jeff Akers (Joseph of Arimathea), Robert Bupp (the Roman centurion at the cross), and Ginnie Bullis (Mary Magdalene).  Hopefully we'll have a DVD out soon featuring all of these, and I'm sure there will be more dramas coming in the future!

And speaking of the future, this Sunday I'll be sharing about our journey "From Breakthrough to Building,"  and how God is growing us and leading us toward getting our own facility!

Vacation Bible School will soon be upon us - June 22nd -25th.  This year will be different as it will be held IN THE EVENING, from 6-8:15 p.m.  We still need workers, so if you can help out, please contact Ginnie Bullis, ginnie.bullis(at)gmail.com.
Our Mustard Seeds and Mountains mission trip to West Virginia is also that week, June 21st -26th.  We need to hear from folks who are interested in going, so please contact Jim Bloom, wvujim1978(at)gmail.com as soon as possible!
Finally, as I've been looking over all that God has done at CrossRoads over the years, I was thinking what our own "Portrait" looks like.  
You can help me paint that picture by finishing this sentence: "This is what CrossRoads means to me:…" ?  I'd love to hear your response, so please take a minute and reply to this email with your thoughts.  Thanks!

See you Sunday!
