NOTE TO CROSSBRIDGE!

Hi Everybody!

I hope you are having a great week! This Sunday is “GO TIME”! If you don’t know what that means either ... 
1) I am a failure at communicating or
2) You haven’t been to Crossbridge in the month of October!

This Sunday we are celebrate “TIME CHANGE SUNDAY”! Turn your clock back 1 hour this Saturday night and enjoy that extra hour of sleep, Netflix, catching up on your Facebook or eating your kids Halloween candy (they don’t need all that stuff anyway!). THEN - THE BEST DAY EVER HAPPENS - SUNDAY AT CROSSBRIDGE! We begin a brand new series “God is...” and after each service we'll have food and bounce houses in the parking lot. It’s gonna be a great day.

Here is the deal though; this isn’t just for us to enjoy time together. While we love that, our church exists to see every man, woman and child in Fort Bend County have an encounter with the transforming power of Jesus Christ. So, I want to encourage and challenge you to invite and bring people with you this Sunday. 

That may sound super intimidating, but I believe you can do this! Remember what we talked about this past Sunday? If you are a Christ-Follower you have the same Spirit in you that raised Christ from the dead! This is huge. The same Holy Spirit that was in the Apostle Paul as he planted churches and wrote the scriptures is in you! 

If that is true, then let’s step out in faith and do this. Go for it and make the ask, send the email/text or call. In fact don’t just tell people about it - BRING THEM WITH YOU! 

Let’s do this Crossbridge!

I believe in you. God can use you.

You are loved.
