The Living Nativity is Almost Here

Posted by bbullis on November 16, 2015

Before I mention the upcoming Christmas season and information about the Living Nativity, I want to honor the current Thanksgiving season and tell you how much I appreciate all of you and what a blessing it is to be a part of CrossRoads.  Our study of "40 Days of Community" has only solidified what I already knew…that CrossRoads is a special group of folks who love God and each other and want to reach the world for Jesus and give glory to His name!


This spirit of reaching out and serving others and honoring Christ is especially evident in our Living Nativity.  What an opportunity God has given us to tell the story of Jesus' birth!  Thanks to the many folks who have been working hard to put on this year's event, and for all of you for supporting the effort!  

As you know, we're adding a Friday night performance (December 11th, 6-8 p.m.), which will be BY RESERVATION ONLY.  We're trying out a system to help the flow of traffic which involves pre-registering for a time slot to see the Nativity.  Obviously most of us are participating and will already be there, but this is a chance to give close friends and family members the opportunity to see the Nativity without the long wait time.

The instructions are pretty straightforward:  Go to our website, www.crossroadsmd.org, and click on the box that says "Living Nativity Reservations".  You'll be directed to the event site, where you'll scroll down to "Select a Time".  The rest of the instructions are on the site.  If you want the reservation confirmation going to the person you are registering, make sure you put in their information.  That would really be the best way to do it, as they'll then receive an email reminder as well.

If you have any questions, please let me know.  And please be praying for this wonderful event…that many lives would be touched with the good news of new life in Jesus Christ!

Blessings,

Bob


Old Testament Rewind

Posted by bbullis on October 24, 2015

 

On SUNDAY, OCTOBER 25TH, during the morning service, the CRCC drama team will share an overview of the entire Old Testament called "Old Testament Rewind."  The presentation is 28 minutes long,  and involves a cast of four people who portray all the major characters in the Old Testament, from Genesis to Malachi.  It's informative, entertaining, and definitely fast-paced!

You won't want to miss it!  Please make every effort to come and invite a friend.
 


CrossRoads Connecting Picnic and Baptism Service

Posted by bbullis on September 30, 2015

It’s always an exciting time when we gather as a church family to have a picnic on our property; and share new life together when we baptize folks who have committed their lives to Jesus Christ. We call this event “CrossRoads Connecting” because it’s about strengthening our relationships with one another and with our Heavenly Father!

 

As you know, our next gathering is THIS SUNDAY, October 4, 2015, from 4-7 p.m.  According to the first letter of your last name, we’re asking folks to bring:  A-D: Dessert, E-N: Main Dish, and O-Z: Side Dish.  Of course you’ll also need lawn chairs and/or picnic blankets and any yard games you’d like to play.

 

HOWEVER, even though it’s a few days away, it looks like we may be in for some severe weather.  So, we’re already looking for an alternate location.

 

I will keep everyone posted on the status of things, so please keep your eyes open for additional emails or you can visit the website at www.crossroadsmd.org.

 

See you Sunday!

 

Pastor Bob

CrossRoads on Mission

Posted by bbullis on August 25, 2015

Jesus commands us to go and make disciples of all nations.  CrossRoads takes that command seriously as we give 9% of our offerings to ministries beyond our doors and around the world (1% of our offerings go to benevolence needs).  With those funds we support various ministries in various countries from Haiti to Thailand.

 

The Floyd family ministers to the Tarahumara people in northern Mexico, helping support the needs of the people and sharing the love of Christ.  They will be sharing about their ministry on Sunday, Aug. 30th, in the morning service, with a church picnic to follow, so that we can get to spend some personal time with them.

 

Let’s show them our support and learn how we can better pray and support their work!
