NOTE TO CROSSBRIDGE!

Hi Everybody!

We are very excited about Christmas Eve in Fort Bend happening THIS SATURDAY.  Our building has been abuzz with people decorating and getting ready for what we are praying to be a life changing night!  At our staff meeting on Tuesday we ended by spreading throughout our auditorium praying that God would work in a mighty way and that people would meet Jesus as their Savior.

As of this writing (Wednesday afternoon) the tickets we have given out lead us to believe this will be our highest attended Christmas ever!  Every ticket is connected to a person and that person matters to God!  While we are nearing capacity for all three services now, know we will not turn people away and there is still time to invite people to join us. 

Remember our goal this Christmas Eve is to make Jesus known in Fort Bend County.  Our Christmas Eve in Fort Bend Experiences are designed to engage unchurched people with the gospel in a creative and compelling way!  The lobby will be dazzling, the music will be stellar and I hope the preaching is okay too. JMost of all we want God to do what only God can do and that is move people from death to life!

Will you pray these things with me over the next few days?

  1. Pray that the unbelievers who have received an invitation will accept it and come.
  2. Pray that God’s presence would be experienced in abundance from even the moment people drive into our parking lot.
  3. Pray that God would draw many to our Christmas Eve in Fort Bend experiences and that the Gospel would be clear to them.
  4. Pray God’s hand would be on every aspect of this night...Remember from Sunday ask Him to oppose what opposes us!
    1. Pray for the Guest Services Team - as they create an amazing environment through welcoming people and engaging elements in the Lobby.
    2. Pray for the Singers and Band - for their health and abilities and that God would use the music to soften hearts to Himself.
    3. Pray the preaching of the gospel would be powerful and effective by His Spirit.
    4. Pray for all the technical aspects of the night.  God doesn’t need lights to save people, but we don’t want a power outage or whatnot to be a distraction to the Gospel.
  5. Pray for a ton of people to come to faith in Christ!

Pray with me Crossbridge and I’ll see you Saturday at Christmas Eve in Fort Bend!
