This past Sunday we served more people than any previous Sunday in our history! From Good Friday to Sunday after the third service, it was simply amazing. We give glory to God for all that He did. As your pastor, I want to thank you for your partnership in the Gospel.
Thank you for being BOLD and persistent in inviting your friends. Thank you for serving (some of you two services!) to create a place where children, students and adults could experience the story of the gospel.Thank you for giving financially, which allows us to serve people in our different environments.Thank you for praying that God would move in a powerful way.
We had a TON of first time guests! We had 11 people indicate they were beginning a relationship with Jesus that day! Praise God for that!
While we are already looking forward to gathering again this coming Sunday, I wanted to make sure I said "Thank you!". God is writing an amazing story at Crossbridge and you are playing a vital part.
If you invited someone and they came, be sure to follow up with them. See what they thought about the service and ask how can you be praying for them. If they seem to indicate they liked the service, invite them back or even invite them to a Community Group social so they can meet more people in our faith community.
This Sunday we will take a moment to celebrate and update you on our Still BOLD series and where we are over all in our BOLD journey. We will start a brand new series, "AUTHENTIC: Real Faith in a Fake World" and spend the next few weeks journeying through 1 John together. I'm very excited about this series and praying God will do big things to help us live as authentic followers of Jesus here in Fort Bend County.
I thank God for you Crossbridge!
See ya Sunday!

Sexual Abuse Awareness Training
Crossbridge Church desires to provide a safe environment for our children while in our care. We also desire to partner with parents to provide resources that will help you keep your children safe. Because of this, we are offering a FREE CONFERENCE at Crossbridge to benefit both PARENTS and VOLUNTEERS in our preschool, elementary and student ministries. This conference will be held THIS SUNDAY from 4-7 pm in the auditorium. Dinner will be provided.
Ministry Safe is aimed at leadership, staff members, volunteers (18 years and older) and parents. This training will highlight abuser characteristics, the abuser’s ‘grooming process’ and common ‘grooming behaviors’, using examples from actual cases arising from ministry programs.
