NOTE TO CROSSBRIDGE!

Hi Everyone!

Last Sunday we kicked off a brand new series called “ROOTED: Deep Roots, Wide Branches”.  If you missed it, check it out here. It was great to be back with you and teaching God’s word to you!  We spent our time focusing on being rooted in the gospel of Jesus.  Obviously, we only scratched the surface of what that looks like and we’ll unpack it some more in the weeks to come.  I wanted to let you know about some other resources you could watch or read that would help you grow in your understanding and appreciation of all that God has done for us in Jesus.

This Sunday we will continue our series, and we will do something special after our third service.  We will be commissioning our very own Breanna Van Note as a missionary.  We will be praying for her in each service, but after the third service we will have a brief service together as a church family to commission her.  If you know Breanna or if you are part of our church family and want to see someone from our own family sent to make Jesus known to the nations, I encourage you to be there.

We had over thirty people at our Welcome Lunch this past Sunday! I’m so grateful to God, He is adding to our number in our mission to make more and stronger disciples of Jesus.  Thank you for inviting, welcoming, serving and giving boldly so that we can bring the liberating power of the gospel to Fort Bend County!  Keep it up! 

I’ll see you Sunday!
