This Sunday is going to begin, what I believe, a truly historic series and season for our church! "BOLD" - more of an initiative than a series. For the next five weeks we'll look at the lives of different people in scripture who stepped out in BOLD faith and God used that for amazing things! We'll talk about how Crossbridge is taking our boldest step of faith in our history!
- Please make every effort to be here this Sunday! Every area, Crossbridge Kids, Students and
- Community Groups will be going through the Bold series as well!
- And . . . after each service we'll have "Chili on the Porch"!
This is truly going to be an amazing season for us!
Expecting Great Things,
THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW!
"BOLD" New Series Begins This Sunday! We believe God will use this as a "game changer" for our church! We have a choice, we can play it safe or we can seize the life God has in mind for us. What's it going to be? Stop by the table in the lobby and pick up a Bold booklet and a t-shirt.
- Crossbridge Kids and Students go through the same series as the adults.
- Community Groups will study along with the series.
- Enjoy a warm BOLD bowl of chili on the porch after each service!
