He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!

Posted by bbullis on April 2, 2015

Dear CrossRoads Family,

 

“He is Risen!  He is Risen Indeed!”

 Most of us at CrossRoads are pretty familiar with this phrase, which was a greeting in the early church, and beautifully summarizes the truth we celebrate - the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

 

 Much of the world, however, does not acknowledge this truth.  Recently, well-known atheist Richard Dawkins said, “Accounts of Jesus’ resurrection and ascension are about as well-documented as ‘Jack and the Beanstalk.’”

However, Dr. Sam Lamerson of Knox Theological Seminary says, “There is no ancient historical event that is more certainly testified to both by number of witnesses and by evidence than the resurrection of Jesus Christ.”

We who have been saved by the blood of Jesus Christ are today’s witnesses to the truth, which we’re going to celebrate this weekend!

 

HERE'S THE SCHEDULE OF EVENTS FOR THIS SUNDAY, RESURRECTION (EASTER) SUNDAY:                                                                       

                  - 6:30 a.m.  SUNRISE SERVICE on the church property.  We’ll have a re-enactment of the women finding the empty tomb and Mary Magdalene encountering the risen Christ!  Of course we’ll also have a wonderful time of praise and worship as we witness a beautiful sunrise!  Dress warmly, bring a lawn chair, and invite a friend.

                  - 10:30 a.m. CELEBRATION SERVICE at C. Milton Wright.  We’ll finish our “Portraits of the Passion” series with testimonies from Mary Magdalene and the Roman Centurion, plus we’ll celebrate the Lord’s Supper and have an inspiring time of worship.   Be sure and invite a friend!

 

I know you’ll make every effort to attend one or both of these services!  And please be praying for those who will come who don’t regularly attend.

See you Sunday!  He is Risen Indeed!

Portraits of the Passion

Posted by bbullis on February 13, 2015

There's something exciting to look forward to this weekend, as we're starting a new series entitled "Portraits of the Passion," a study that will look at Easter through the eyes of the various people involved.  Each week we'll have a special appearance of one of these biblical characters telling their story!  You won't want to miss a single week! (and be sure and invite your friends!).  In the spirit of the Lenten season, I'm praying this will help us focus again on what Jesus did for us by dying for our sins; and will prepare us for our celebration of His resurrection on Easter Sunday!  He is risen…He is risen indeed!  

Also, I have to mention that it looks like we have the potential for a small snow storm on Saturday night.  It probably will not amount to much, but if they happen to close C. Milton Wright, we will again be meeting at Evans Funeral Chapel, 3 Newport Drive, Forest Hill.  Service time would be the same, 10:30 a.m.  Check the church web page for any inclement weather information (www.crossroadsmd.org).  Thanks for being flexible!

And thanks to all of you for your commitment to CrossRoads; and thanks to those who are involved in our month of prayer and fasting.  I know God is moving as a result of our prayers!

Annual Town Hall Meeting, Sunday Jan. 25th

Posted by bbullis on January 21, 2015

Dear CrossRoads Family,

 

This Sunday, January 25th, is our annual "Town Hall" Meeting, otherwise known as "Keeping up with CrossRoads - Live!" at Mt. Tabor Methodist Church.  The meeting starts at 7 p.m., and we'll be sharing what God has been doing and how we feel He is leading us forward.

 

BEFORE the meeting, starting at 6 p.m., we'll have our Annual "Men's Chili Cook-off" and fellowship dinner.  Men, if you'd like to join the competition and bring some super-special homemade chili, please contact Paul Fontenot at pfontenot(at)yahoo.com.  Desserts and side dishes are welcome as well!


Finally, it looks like we may be faced with some more wintery weather this weekend, so check here on the website for any cancellations and updates!


God bless you all.  See you Sunday!


Bob




Christmastime is Here!

Posted by bbullis on November 22, 2014

Dear CrossRoads Family,

 

Please don't forget that our Operation Christmas Child boxes are due on Sunday, November 23rd.  In case you forget to bring them to church, you can drop them off at Calvary Baptist Church in Bel Air on Monday.

 

Progress is being made on the Living Nativity, which is still scheduled for December 13th and 14th, 6-9 p.m.  Don't forget to get some business cards and fliers and invite someone!  Contact Holly Voelker if you haven't yet signed up for an assignment.   Set up day is December 6th, from 8 a.m. until we're finished, and we still need folks to sign up for time blocks to "keep watch" over our props during the week before the Nativity.  We have 4 hour time slots available.

 

Continue to pray for good weather and a good crowd to hear the good news of Jesus Christ!

 

Blessings,

 

Bob


Turn our Clocks Back Sunday Nov. 2nd

Posted by bbullis on November 1, 2014

Hi Everyone,


I just wanted to send you a quick reminder about tomorrow, Sunday, November 2nd.

First:  Don't forget to TURN YOUR CLOCKS BACK ONE HOUR tonight before you go to bed.

Second:  We'll be celebrating the Lord's Supper in the worship service, which is always an inspirational time.

Third:  The youth are having a bonfire / cookout from 5-8 p.m. at the Flot's house.  Contact Brandon (bdonald2(at)eastern.edu) for more info.

I hope you've already "walked across the room" and invited someone to worship with us, and if not, there's still time to give someone a call!  I've been so blessed by the number of folks who are stretching "beyond their comfort zones" and telling their story and sharing the love of Jesus.

Finally, don't forget it's not too late to sign up to be a part of our Living Nativity on Dec. 13th and 14th.  Contact Holly Voelker (jhmpdv(at)comcast.net).  

That's it for now.  See you tomorrow!

Bob
