We are super excited to see everybody and honor all the dads tomorrow for Father’s Day @ Crossbridge! The band has practiced, the food has been ordered, the Batmobile is confirmed and we are ready to have a great day!

Our vision is to use this special day to change the way people think about God, Christians and the Church.  It is a great day to introduce friends and family to the community of Crossbridge in a fun way.  They get to see what a typical worship service looks like, hang out with us after and have some fun.

IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO INVITE SOMEONE!  Send that text, e-mail or call that person on your heart and invite them to join us!  Who knows what God might do through your simple invitation?

Let’s “wreck the roof” to get people to Jesus! See ya tomorrow!

Prep for Sunday

Song Preparation: I encourage you listen to these songs each week so that you are familiar with them by the time we sing on Sunday. I always find that becoming more familiar with the lyrics to a song gives me more freedom to be led by the Holy Spirit as I worship. I would encourage you to go to itunes or any other music download site and purchase these songs for your music library. That way you can spend more time listening to them and learning the lyrics!

Here is some scripture that goes well with the songs we will sing this Sunday. 

  1. 1,000 Tongues - Psalm 104:33; Psalm 33:1-3
  2. Rescuer - Luke 4:18-19; Romans 5:8
  3. How Can it Be - 1 John 2:1-2, Hebrews 4:16
  4. His Mercy is More - Ephesians 1:3-14
  5. Greatly to be Praised - Psalm 145

A Note from Chuck About Father’s Day

Artboard 1-100.jpg

Crossbridge Family,

I have missed being with you these past few weeks! I am so grateful to our Elders for allowing me time to rest, refuel and spend time playing, praying and planning for future messages.  We begin our brand-new message series “DIFFERENT: A Study of 1 Peter” this Father’s Day, and I am super excited about it.

Will you be praying with me for Father’s Day?  We are using this Sunday as a strategic day to introduce our friends and family to Crossbridge with the hope they hear the gospel and are transformed by its power.  I have been praying for this day during my whole break and want to ask you as we are days away from Father’s Day to join me in praying for four things…

  1. That we would be bold and winsome in our invitations to Father’s Day @ Crossbridge.
  2. That people would respond and attend one of our services.
  3. That they would experience the presence of God in a life-changing way through our love for people, gracious hospitality, and gospel-centered worship service.
  4. That it wouldn’t rain until after the event! 

You are an inviting church, Crossbridge!  God has used you to change the way people think about God, Christians and the Church, and I know He will use you again this coming Sunday on Father’s Day.

It is a joy being your pastor!

Chuck

Top 5 Questions About Father’s Day at Crossbridge Church!

Top 5 Questions About Father’s Day at Crossbridge Church!

Is there going to be real food or celery sticks?

Have no fear Super Dads!  We will have burgers with all the fixin’s and some cold, frothy root beer to wash it all down!  There will also be some sweet treats, because… why not? And the food is for EVERYONE, not just Dads!

Will Batman be preaching?

Sorry, The Dark Knight is unavailable this year, but we will have the Houston Batmobile on display after all services in the parking lot!  BTW – you should hear Pastor Chuck’s Batman voice.  It’s pretty good!  (FULL DISCLOSURE – No one really asked this question.)

So, the message is going to be guilt-filled and condemning, right?

One word, NO!  On Father’s Day we start a brand-new message series called “Different”.  It’s going to be a life-giving, challenging series through the book of 1 Peter and will be filled with gospel-centered hope!

Will there be stuff for my kids?

Yes!  We have our awesome Crossbridge Kids environments happening in every service and afterwards we will have bounce houses for the younger kids and Gaga Ball and 9 Square for adults and teens.

What can I do to help?

Thanks for asking! (See what we did there? 😊) There are three big ways to help make this a great Father’s Day!  1) PRAY that God uses it to bring people to Jesus and for no rain, 2) SERVE during one of the services, and 3) BRING some guests with you to enjoy this awesome day!  You can e-mail info@crossbridge.cc to sign-up to serve.
