Hopefully by now, those of you who were on Spring Break are back into your routines and are ready for a great Sunday at Crossbridge!
As a reminder, this Sunday is BOLD Celebration Sunday and our First BOLD Give! What this means is that we will be celebrating all kinds of HUGE numbers and stories for BOLD that you will not want to miss. It will truly be unforgettable, so make plans to attend. Additionally, our First BOLD Give means that for many of us, this is the day when we are giving our largest gift for BOLD - maybe out of stored resources if we committed those, or out of our current income. But for many of us, this is the day when we are kicking off the fulfillment of our BOLD commitments in a huge way. In fact, we are praying that this Sunday might be the largest offering Crossbridge has ever received. So pray about what God would have you give this Sunday, as we make plans to put the down payment on the property at Harlem and Plantation. God is good!
If for some reason you will be out of town this Sunday (what?!), then you can still go HERE and give your First BOLD Gift online. Thank you for your generosity.
Additionally, the life change stories for BOLD continue to pour in. If you have not yet shared your story of life change from the BOLD initiative, you can share your story HERE. We would love to hear it and to celebrate all that God is doing IN you and THROUGH you in this BOLD initiative. Also on the BOLD site, you can make your BOLD commitment if you have not done so already. This Sunday, we will announce our BOLD total, and we do not want you to have missed out! So please feel free to click HERE to make your commitment, and let us know if you have any questions.
Thanks, everyone. I cannot wait to celebrate with you this weekend and share a message with you from God's Word that I believe will be crucial to our future. Join with me as we continue on our mission of honoring God by making growing followers of Jesus Christ!
Grateful to be your pastor,
THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW!
