Crossroads Church family!
Our Phase Three re-entry process last Sunday, September 13, 2020, was a blessing in every respect. Attendance in Connect Classes, Children’s Ministry, and morning worship inspired me greatly. Dr. Gravely’s live, in-person discipleship teaching from 1 & 2 Peter was another re-start encouragement. Thank you all for your love for Christ and his church. Let me also express gratitude for the time and effort of our church staff in making this day of new beginnings such a success.
We also approved a projected estimate our financial needs in 2021.Once again, many thanks to our finance Team for the hours they invested in the budget process. Your unanimous approval is a clear indication of our intent to fulfill these financial responsibilities. Thank you for such a giving spirit.
Our new member orientation material is currently under review and editing. As you know completing this study is a requirement for those desiring membership in Crossroads Community Church. When these edits are complete, we’ll announce our teaching plan dates and locations for those interested in becoming members of this wonderful church.
Our study through the Epistle to the Philippians will continue through September and October. The truth of Church 101: Philippians and the Partnership of Mission challenges me at every turn of my service as your Interim Pastor. Thank you for the privilege of sharing these truths with you. I can’t wait to study Philippians 2: 1-4 this Sunday.
Of course, In November we’ll shift into seasonal themes as we experience Thanksgiving and our celebration of the birth of Jesus. Join me in praying that these joyful times will move us beyond the church property to influence the world around us.
Yours in Christ,
Sonny Holmes, Interim Pastor
