Only a couple more days until what's going to be a "Super Sunday" at Crossbridge Church! This Sunday we are going to have a blast kicking off a new message series that will explore the life of Abraham, set the direction for the next two years of our church and by God's grace see us grow in our faith like never before! This may be the most important series in our church yet. If you call Crossbridge your church home and family, I am asking as your pastor to make every effort to be there this Sunday!
This is a great Sunday to invite a friend. We will be starting a new series, they will experience the heart of our church, and after each service we will have our "Pizza Bowl". We will have an assortment of pizzas and wings form Fort Bend County's very own Pepperoni's, plus some other yummy stuff, and bounce houses for the kids. Why not message someone right now and say, "I would love for you to come with me to Crossbridge this Sunday?" I believe people are one invitation away form a changed life and eternity.
We talked this last Sunday as we finished our “Holy Habits” series about the need to “Gather Regularly” and the benefits of it. If you missed it, click here to watch or listen. We are not a spectating, uninvolved, come when we feel like it kind of church. No, we gather intentionally to be reoriented around the Kingdom of God and the gospel of Jesus with our church family and friends. I can’t wait to do it again this Sunday with you!
You are loved!
THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW!
PIZZA BOWL | FEBRUARY 4 | After each service
Make a special effort to be here Sunday, February 4th, when we begin a new message series. We'll have pizza and wings to eat, bounce houses for jumping and much more! It's a great time to invite your friends, neighbors and everyone you know to attend with you.
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
(no registrations will be accepted after 2/11)
NEXT STEPS: WHAT'S YOURS? | February 11 & 18
