Hi Everybody! I really can't find the word to express my perspective about our BOLD Commitment Sunday this past weekend! God's presence was very real to me and to see our church take their biggest BOLDEST step of faith ever was so humbling. For many, it was their first BOLD step into generosity, while others took a BOLD next step! The stories you guys are sharing with me are so amazing! I truly have never been part of a church where this much God-activity is being talked about! This is an unprecedented season of grace in the life of Crossbridge! Let's give praise to Jesus for His grace on our church!
If you missed this past Sunday, you have not missed your opportunity to take a BOLD step of faith in generosity! Some families were out of town or were out because of sickness. You can go on-line to the Commitment Card HERE on our BOLD site and take that BOLD step today!!!
God has used and is using this BOLD season to change our church and change lives for Jesus! Two people indicated on their Connect Card they became a Christian this past Sunday!! On Commitment Sunday?!?! God has to be in this, right?! J
Crossbridge, will do me a favor please? Share your story about what God has been saying or doing in you! Your story will encourage someone, I guarantee it. God does not do things in us for us to keep it to ourselves, right! That's the whole point of generosity! So be generous with what God has done through the BOLD initiative by going HERE and take just a few minutes to share what our amazing God has done in you! Thank you so much!
I love you Crossbridge. You are a great church and God is at work in you! I'm honored to be a partner here and to be your pastor.
