Note To Crossbridge!

Hi Everyone! I am so grateful to God for His grace on Crossbridge right now! Seeing 7 people proclaim their faith in Jesus this past Sunday was just awesome. Then to see the response to our Group Link and with so many people seeking to connect in a community of mutual spiritual encouragement was very cool.

Crossbridge has seen a lot of changes this year. We have gone BOLD and are in a journey of generosity that will lead to us relocating, we have grown in size on Sunday morning, we have grown in the size of our staff, we have said goodbye to long time staff members as the Rich’s moved to College Station and of course the normal changes happening in our lives as kids grow, school starts, and etc.

I want to let you know about another change that has happened as well. Glenn Smith has stepped down from our Elder Team. Glenn has been an Elder at Crossbridge for over 12 years and to say he has made an impact here is an understatement! He has led groups, counseled tons of people, preached on Sundays, taught classes, led us in the leasing of our current facility, he oversaw the move in process here, and has been instrumental in our BOLD campaign and property purchase. Due to some extended family care needs, Glenn feels he cannot fully meet the obligations of an Elder at Crossbridge. We love Glenn very much and are disappointed he has to step down but support him in caring for his family. If you know Glenn I would encourage you to send him a note and tell him how much you appreciate him and all he has done for Crossbridge as an Elder.

Our current Elder Team will take this fall to select 1-2 new Elders that we hope to present to the church sometime at the end of this year or the beginning of next. Being an Elder in a local church is a very important role and we want to prayerfully seek out the right men who will help shepherd our church in this new exciting season. Please be praying for me, Reed Cutshall and Chris Nilsson as we start this process of Elder assessment and selection.

This is a great season at Crossbridge! We have had a lot of changes but what will never change is our commitment to spread the gospel in Fort Bend County and to see people transformed by its power.

Excited for the future, believing the best is yet to be!
