It may be cold outside, but we have some exciting things coming this weekend to warm your heart!
First, for all Volunteers and Leaders we have our Vision Preview Nights this weekend. Pick either this Friday, February 19th or Sunday, February 21st for an evening of incredible food, great conversations, life-giving worship and the next step of our vision as a church community! I am asking as your pastor that if you lead or serve in any area of our church, then please make every effort to attend one of these two evenings. I cannot wait to share with you what the Elders, staff and I have been spending months getting prepared for!
Second, this Sunday we will continue our "Holy Habits" series, have our NextSteps StepTWO class happening at 10:00 and 11:30, and Community Group Sign-up in the lobby. There is something for everybody this Sunday. Being involved in a Community Group has been indispensable in my own spiritual development, and I believe is indispensable in anyone's development as a follower of Jesus. You may have tried a group before and for some reason it didn't work out; let me encourage you to try again. We grow spiritually strong when we are connected relationally to others in the same pursuit.
I love gathering with you and your friends every week. Sunday is truly the best day of the week for me! Invite a friend to come with you, and I'll see you then.
You are Loved!
THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW!
HOLY HABITS SERMON SERIES CONTINUES
We make our habits and then our habits make us. Join us for this new series as we look at the power of habit and seek to start some new habits in 2018.

VISION PREVIEW NIGHT | January 19 or 21
God is doing amazing things at Crossbridge and we want EVERY VOLUNTEER AND LEADER to hear about it by attending one of these vision nights! We will have worship, food, fun, and creative elements as we hear the vision of what God has for us next. RSVP HERE so we can know how much food to get and to reserve your childcare space. We look forward to seeing you there.
COMMUNITY GROUP SIGN-UP | January 21 & 28 - All Service
We believe God wants us to grow personally by connecting relationally. Community Groups at Crossbridge exist to make life-changing relationship accessible to you. Sign-up for new groups begins January 21st.
CONNEXUS WEEKEND | $60 | FEB. 16-18 | 7th-12th Grade
Our desire is that CWKD is more than a weekend event, and that it is a movement of God in the lives of students that spurs them on to pursue and proclaim Jesus more than ever before in their life. The purpose of the weekend is to create an opportunity for spiritual awakening and growth among students through which they could fall in love with the Word of God and the work of God and be transformed as they discover Jesus' relevance in their every day life through community. Our heart is for this to spark a movement of students who are boldly living on purpose everyday to make disciple-making disciples of Jesus.
In addition to worship and teaching times at our church, some Crossbridge families will open their homes for students to sleep and hang out during the weekend with other students their age and gender. Each host home is assigned an incredible guest leader who will lead Bible study sessions for the group. During CWKD, there will be opportunities for worship, teaching, service, recreation, time with friends, lots of food and fun, but mostly it is about students growing in their relationship with Jesus through community.
Regular Registration runs 11/29-1/31: $60
Late Registration runs 2/1-2/11: $70
