NOTE TO CROSSBRIDGE! Hi Everybody!
I loved last Sunday at Crossbridge! We launched our BOLD Initiative and had Chili on the Porch after each service. A record high attendance with lots of new guests! We got feedback from several guests that are excited to be part of a church where God is moving!
If you have not heard about the BOLD Initiative yet at Crossbridge check it out HERE! This initiative is so big that it will have its own website that will stay active for the next two years! Watch the vision video HERE and learn what this step of faith is all about! You will find message videos from the BOLD series, life change stories from other Crossbridgers, and ongoing updates about what is happening as we seek to be BOLD for our mission, for our community and for our world.
This is such an important season in the life of our church that I’m asking every one that calls Crossbridge their church home to be here every week of the entire series! Mark March 1st on your calendar! It’s COMMITMENT SUNDAY! Together we will take our boldest step of faith and turn in what we sense the Lord is calling each of us to give for the next two years! That will be an historic day for Crossbridge!
Remember, during this series, our kids and students are learning about a generous lifestyle and we are even challenging our students to see how they can be a part of the BOLD initiative for the next two years! Our Community Groups are discussing what it means to Boldly trust God in every area of our lives. If you are not in a group yet e-mail HERE and let us help you find one today!
This Sunday we will continue our series and look at why we get so nervous when we talk about money.
These are exciting days Crossbridge! Be praying that God will lead us, protect us, and embolden us to do whatever it takes to reach people far from God with the transforming power of Jesus Christ!
I love being your pastor!
Going Bold with you!
