Christmas for Our Missionaries

As Christmas approaches, we want to bless our global Go partners with a special gift. During the month of November, you can visit the table in our lobby and give to any of our global missionaries. You can also give online on Pushpay by giving to Missions and writing "Christmas" in the memo line. Please email go@lifeatcrossroads.org with any questions.

 

Union Rescue Mission

We need volunteers to bake Christmas cookies for the Union Rescue Mission's annual Christmas Party to the men enrolled in The Christian Life Discipleship program. Sign up to bake 2-3 dozen cookies at lifeatcrossroads.info or in our lobby. Please drop your cookies off at the church office no later than Wednesday, December 6.

 

Go Partner Spotlight

For the month of November, we are honored to highlight John and Holly Reed, members of Crossroads, and their ministry with AWANA Lifeline. John serves as the primary point of contact for our Malachi Dads ministry to the inmates of Pitchess Detention Center. He helps coordinate and teach Bible studies to the men there, showing them what it means to be in a relationship with God and how to be a godly parent. AWANA Lifeline’s hope and goal is to see families restored, first with God, and secondly with each other so that the next generation will walk in obedience to the Lord.

Elevate Surf Club: Third Saturday in December, $5 – Surf Club is for students who can surf or who want to learn. We meet outside the church office at 8:00 a.m. We check the surf report, and then head out to the beach with the gnarliest waves! You need to bring $5, a wetsuit, a board, and money for food. If you don’t have a board, we have a few to lend. Surf Club usually returns around 6:30 p.m. Hey parents, we need drivers if you want to join us!

 

Elevate Christmas Fundraiser

For six weeks, beginning November 19 until December 24, Elevate will be raising funds for the new Elevate Warehouse.  Rather than simply raising money, we have decided to give our church body the ability to donate directly to items that will be used in our new space.  There will be a Christmas tree set up in the lobby decorated with all the items or “ornaments” needed for our space.  Everything from chairs to lights, board games to group games, and bar stools to lockers! You can browse the tree, locate the dollar amount for this item on the back of the “ornament” and decide what you would like to gift.  Once you have decided, you can take the “ornament” off the tree and purchase it in the lobby.

 

 

TEN

Ten is a mission we launched on our ten-year anniversary, when the Crossroads family, by God's grace, commits to giving our lives away in three ways. First, is by planting ten healthy Bible-teaching churches. Second, is to build out and pay off the Valencia Crossroads' main campus within the next ten years. Last, is to identify, select, and financially underwrite the cost to send ten teenage orphans to the Master's University. Join us. Together, we can invest in the future today by making your check out to TEN or donating online at www.lifeatcrossroads.info. All contributions to Ten are tax-deductible under IRS guidelines.

Looking Ahead

The Elders are always looking to the future to care for Crossroads as we continue to mature as a Church. Over the next months, we will be transitioning from Savia to our permanent location, adding new ministry opportunities. Also, with the news that Steve Stark, our Church Administrator and his wife, Lesly, are looking to retire and relocate to Texas next year, to be closer to their kids, the Elders are in the process of opening an Executive Pastor position. This position will help to carry the ever-increasing leadership load at Crossroads. Pray with the Elders for God to raise up the right man for this critical position at Crossroads. Exciting days are ahead as we follow Him.

How do you handle suffering?

Today I was impressed by something Winston Churchill reportedly said, “Nothing is more exciting in life than being shot at without result.”

I can only imagine the adrenaline rush of barely escaping death or severe injury as he described. As I thought about that statement though, it made me also wonder what happens when life hits us and we were not able to dodge the bullet of suffering?

In times like these, I think it is easy to feel isolated and alone as though no one else is having times of difficulty. How do we as Christians find hope to endure the dark valleys of life?

Notice what Jesus says in Rev. 2:9-10 NLT

I know about your suffering and your poverty—but you are rich! I know the blasphemy of those opposing you. They say they are Jews, but they are not, because their synagogue belongs to Satan. Don’t be afraid of what you are about to suffer. The devil will throw some of you into prison to test you. You will suffer for ten days. But if you remain faithful even when facing death, I will give you the crown of life.”

What comforting words we have in “I know.” Jesus KNOWS! He is not a distant God, but one who is intimately aware of all that is going on in our lives.

Notice that Jesus also does not sugar coat the message for the believers in Smyrna who are enduring great suffering for their faith. Jesus says, “Don’t be afraid of what you are about to suffer.” He didn’t tell them that their suffering was over to them a false hope. Instead, he said, don’t be afraid when the suffering continues. In some ways, for them, the worst was yet to come.

Why can these believers continue in faithfulness in spite of their great anguish? Notice the last sentence, “If you remain faithful, even when facing death, I will give you the crown of life.”

The readers could be encouraged by the reminder that Jesus knows their suffering and the promise that faithful obedience even to death will not be forgotten, but rewarded!

This morning then, I was encouraged by the reminder that Jesus knows all that is going on my life today and every day. In addition, I need not fear when difficulties come or when they even get worse. I simply have to trust God, remain faithful, and follow him regardless of what happens.  I should do all of this as I am encouraged by his promises to reward such effort.

Father, thank you for shooting straight with us. We all will suffer, some more than others. You are not surprised by this. You do not tell us to ignore such things, but that we should accept them and remain faithful to you knowing that one day you will reward the life of endurance.
