Dearest Crossroads family,
Easter week is always a very inspiring and spiritually sensitive time for our family. It was during Easter week of 1979 when our calling to ministry was clarified and we began preparations for seminary and pastoral service. So, the images, music, and Scripture of this holy week draws us deeper into the work of our glorious Father and his miraculous touch in our lives. Worshiping with you this Easter Sunday will no doubt be another of those spiritual high marks for us. As always your prayers will be appreciated.
Sunday morning I will preach from Romans 6 and will talk about the newness of life that is ours in the resurrection of Jesus. We will also experience the most vivid human depiction of Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection as a group of our church family experience believer’s baptism. How grateful we must be to see the miracle of redemption on Easter Sunday. What an honor to be a part of this special day.
Post-Easter will move us more firmly into the Pastor Search process and the ministry God has given us for the future of Crossroads Community Church. Several administrative adjustments are in process and I know each one will better position us to “know Christ and make Him known together” in this growing suburban area and the world at large. Please continue your fervent prayers as your church staff and elders guide our mission.
There are many new Bible study opportunities beginning after Easter. Please consult our Monday email and the church website to stay abreast of these personal growth ministries.
Blessings for a glorious Easter week. Will look forward to seeing you on Sunday.
Sonny Holmes, Interim Pastor
