NOTE TO CROSSBRIDGE! Hi Everybody!
I hope you are having a great week! We are still getting remarks from people about how touching Sunday was! The first service was awesome as we sang, heard the Word, and celebrated the gospel! If you missed the sermon catch up HERE! Then if you haven’t heard we lost power in our second service. You can see pictures on our Facebook page. One might think, “Oh no! Our morning is ruined!” but it was far from ruined. We waited a few minutes and when we realized power wasn’t coming back on (over 2500 households were without power and it came back on at noon) our team rallied. It was amazing to see our Volunteers be exactly who I know them to be “stellar”. They kept calm and did what needed to be done to put lights in the kid’s classroom and auditorium. We sang with nothing but an acoustic guitar and did a brief Baby Dedication service. It was a sweet time to hear the voices filling the room singing “Jesus, Paid It All.”
Thank you to all our Volunteers who served on Mother’s Day and special thanks to all who served during the “Blackout of 2015”!
Our Volunteers are amazing! They are the heart of our Sunday gatherings and this Sunday night we are having our annual Volunteer BLAST at 5:30 PM in our building to celebrate them. We are having an 80’s themed party! You don’t have to dress up in 80’s gear, unless you want to of course, but we’re going to have a BLAST 80’s style! Bernie’s Burger Bus and Good Dog Food Truck will be serving up some great food. The ComedySportz Road Show will serving up some hilarious entertainment and we have a few more surprises as well! If you are volunteer and haven’t responded with your RSVP yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!?!? It is going to be an amazing time of celebrating what God has done this past ministry year! Go HERE and make plans to join us this Sunday night.
When you see a Volunteer who is either greeting you at the door, serving your children or whatever be sure and tell them “thanks!”
for their service to Jesus and our church.
