Dear Crossbridge, I hope your 2015 is off to a great start! We kicked off our “ABIDE” series this past Sunday. This is a very important and personal series for me as I am seeking to learn more about and practice “abiding in Jesus” more than ever in 2015.This Sunday we’ll continue by looking at what it means to abide in Jesus’ words. It’s gonna be a great Sunday!
February 1st, during both services, we will baptize some who are ready to go public with their faith in Jesus as their Savior! If you haven’t been baptized yet I want to encourage you to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a baptism packet with the criteria and information. Baptism is such a great marker on your faith journey and we love to celebrate that here at Crossbridge!
As Crossbridge grows, the 10:45 service is getting more crowded. In an effort to maximize our space and welcome new people seeking to meet and follow Jesus, I want to encourage some of you to attend the 9:00 service. If you can make that move it would be a great service to our mission!
I am excited about this 2015 and for our new series beginning February 1st! Mark your calendar and let’s celebrate this next chapter in the life of Crossbridge.
With Much Love!
PS – As many are thinking about changes they want to make in their lives in 2015 what a great opportunity to invite a friend.
