I hope your week is going great! The waters of the Brazos are receding and the clean-up relief efforts have begun. Click here to learn about the donations needed and volunteer opportunities available for you.
This coming week is kinda HUGE. First, this Sunday we have the finale of our “AUTHENTIC” series which I am pretty stoked about, having studied the passage this week. My prayer is that you will find the message highly encouraging to your faith. Then, beginning Monday evening, Mission Week begins. If you have not signed up for this or don’t know what it is, click here right now and jump in on a mission trip in our own backyard!
Next Sunday June 19th is Father’s Day, which we are turning into a party here at Crossbridge! We will have food before and after every service, with bounce houses for the kids, and segways for those 15 and older. C’mon guys I wanna see you out there!
One of our core values is “Engaging Environments”. We seek to create environments that remove unnecessary barriers from people encountering the gospel. The gospel can be offensive friends, but we believe nothing else should be on Sunday when people are coming and seeking to connect with God. We seek to create environments that engage people where they are and encourage them to move toward Jesus. That’s why we do things like Father’s Day stuff, our Fall Lot Party, etc. We seek to remember that kingdom purposes win over personal preferences as we seek to engage people with the gospel!
So, in light of what we will be doing, we should invite, Invite and INVITE anyone and everyone we can to join us for Father’s Day. We’ll also be kicking off a brand new series called “SHOCKED: Surprising Things Jesus Said”, which I’m really excited about!
I love you Crossbridge and I’m excited about what God is doing in our midst!
It’s an honor and a joy to be your pastor!
