NOTE FROM CHUCK
This Sunday is our BIRTHDAY BASH! That’s right, we are celebrating turning 17 and having a PARTY this Sunday! We are all set for some awesome fun and food after all three services, and I’ll be starting a brand-new sermon series all about living with a purpose.
This is the biggest thing we do to kick-start the fall, and we are asking God to do big things this fall at Crossbridge! Part of the way we partner with God is by doing what only we can do and then praying asking God to do what only He can do.
Only we can invite the people we know to join us for the Birthday Bash. Why not right now? Send a text, write the e-mail or make the call to a friend that God has been putting on your heart to join us for this event. MAKE THE ASK, my friends! Don’t talk yourself out of it through faithless thinking. Did you know that a study done by Lifeway research found that 51% of Americans who do not identify as Christian would be willing to attend a church service or Bible study if a close friend or co-worker invited them? This means that you have a better chance of your friend saying “yes” when you invite them to meet Jesus than you do of them saying “no”!Step out on faith right now and invite someone to join us!
Only God can change people’s lives. Please join me in praying as our church is preparing for this Sunday, that God would put His hand of blessing on everything including worship prep, Kids ministry, Guest Services Team, event volunteers, cooks, sermon prep and everyone that is inviting someone to join us! Pray people will meet Jesus for the first time this Sunday! When we pray, God works, so let’s pray my friends. The things we are wanting to see happen at Crossbridge will not happen by human effort alone, so let us call upon the Lord to do what only He can do.
I can’t wait for this Sunday!
