I hope your Thanksgiving was great this year! Kathleen and I are so thankful for you Crossbridge! You are a loving church that wants to make a difference in our community and honor Jesus in all that you do. We aren’t a perfect people, but we know that, and we keep focusing on our perfect savior! So, know that your pastor is thankful for you and is excited to see everybody this Sunday.
This Sunday happens to be one of my favorites of the year! It’s our “Holly Jolly Sunday” and we are going to have a blast! Wear your “ugly”, “tacky”, or just your favorite Christmas shirt/sweater this Sunday. We’ll have a photp booth for you to capture some fun and sweet moments with friends and family. There will be some sweet Christmas treats to engage in, we’ll kick off our Christmas series “The True Light”, and we’ll have invite kits for you to take to begin inviting EVERYBODY YOU KNOW to “Christmas in Fort Bend”, our Christmas services. As you can tell, this Sunday is jam packed with good stuff. This is a great Sunday to invite someone to Crossbridge and a Sunday you will not want to miss!
Who can you invite to join you this Sunday? Why not text or call them right now? Who knows how God might use your invitation to change their life?!
This week you should have received a letter from me regarding End of Year giving. If you haven’t and would like one, e-mail our office at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you one! Your generosity is making a difference in the lives of people all over the world and in Southwest Houston/Fort Bend County. Over the next few weeks, we will be highlighting some ways your generosity was used by Jesus to make a difference in 2017. I want to encourage you to begin praying now about what God would have you give at the end of this year. We have a huge mission to see people know God, grow together and make a difference as followers of Jesus, and it will take a 100% of us to move forward. Thank you for being such a generous church! I know that through your generosity and extra giving here at the end of the year, we will end 2017 ready to hit the ground running in 2018 to make Jesus known in Fort Bend County! Be praying about what God would have you give.
I can’t wait to see you this Sunday!
