Hi, Everybody! I’m excited to be back preaching God’s word to you this Sunday! We will finish our series “GAME CHANGER” with a topic that I am praying will literally be a “GAME CHANGER” for all the Christ-Followers at Crossbridge!
This is also the last Sunday the CB3 table will be in the lobby which gives you a chance to go all-in with CB3 by signing up to serve on a team on Sunday morning. Praise God with me that 259 people have signed up to “wreck the roof” with us on September 20th. We’re making room for more people to experience the presence of God through environments here at Crossbridge!
As we get closer and closer to September 20th I want to encourage you to do two things:
- PRAY! – Please pray for our staff, team leaders, and servants as we prepare to make this move. Pray that God would let His Spirit fill our church with His presence and He would be active in saving and growing people here! We are doing all we can but we want to see all that God can do! We have seen God do amazing things this year, and I believe that He is just getting started! We have the opportunity to be part of something that is God-sized here at Crossbridge! Let’s cry out for His power and presence to be thick in our church!
- INVITE! – We’re making room in our services not just so we can all have a seat buffer between us. (That’s okay for the movies, but not church!) It’s so we can see more of the 424,000 unchurched people in Ft Bend encounter Jesus at a life-giving church! On September 20th, we’ll begin a brand new series called “INSPIRED: Why the Word of God is the Word of Life”. This will be a life changing series that you won’t want to miss and you will want friends and families to experience. We’ll have Yeti snow cones after each service to celebrate our 13th birthday as well. AND…We are doing something that has the potential to be one of the most significant things in someone’s life - so special that there is a good chance when the service is over you will think, “I wish so-and-so were here.” I’m not saying that just for hype, but we believe the stakes are high because people matter to God and everybody lives forever somewhere!
Before you read any further or delete this e-mail take the next 3 minutes – 180 seconds - to pray for September 20th at Crossbridge and for the three people you will invite. I’m going to do this as soon I finish this writing.
I love you, Crossbridge. God is on the move in and through us. Let us continually be passionately faithful and, by His grace, pray to be supernaturally fruitful!
I’m all in. Chuck
