On Sunday, October 30th, Pastor Todd and Dr. Gene Getz will launch a preaching a series on the theology of sexuality. God holds the patent on human sexuality, so we will spend four weeks looking at what the scriptures have to say about this topic. This is an important topic that has been hijacked by our culture. Parents, we know our kids attend the Sunday Worship Services and the sermons will take into account their presence. We seek to be Biblical and sensitive with each Sunday topic. Here is the following sermon schedule: 

10/30 - Is Gender Sacred or Selected? 

11/6   - Are Gender Roles Holy or Hollywood? 

11/13 - Is Marriage Defined or Discovered? 

11/20 - Is Sexuality Glandular or Godly?

 

The Holy Land Tour: The tour (November 1–10, 2017) is officially FULL. Inspirations Tours have been kind enough to begin a waiting list in case of any cancellations. If you are interested in being added to the waiting list, contact Inspirations Tours directly (800-247-1899) and ask to speak with a Reservation Coordinator.

SCV Pregnancy Center: SCV Pregnancy Center is looking for a part time RN. This is a paid position, working two days a week. Please call 661-255-0084 for an application form and interview.

 

GO MINISTRY

For the month of October, 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.

Join ZOE International in their walk to raise awareness for human trafficking. ZOE works to raise awareness and rescue those in trafficking both here in LA and internationally. The walk will take place on Saturday, November 6, at 10 a.m., and will begin at the Los Angeles Mission College. Go to www.zoerescuewalk.com/walk-details/ for more info and to register.

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 over the next decade. Join us. Together, we can invest in the future today by making your check out to TEN or donate online at lifeatcrossroads.org/give. All contributions to TEN are tax-deductible under IRS guidelines.
