ALL CHURCH

This Sunday at Crossroads, Pastor Todd Smith will be concluding our current series on the "Theology of Sexuality" with the topic "Is Sexuality Glandular or Godly?” God holds the patent on human sexuality, so we are 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 their presence into account. We seek to be biblical and sensitive with each Sunday topic. Next week Pastor Todd will share on Gratitude. 

Building Tours: Take a look at our future home at 25300 Rye Canyon. Come by Today from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for a tour and see the progress of the construction in person. 

Lost and Found: Missing a Bible, your child's jacket, or something else? Come look at the lost and found in the patio area before or after services November 20th and 27th. You might be surprised and find something of yours that you did not even know you had lost! All unclaimed items will be donated after November 27th. 

Proposed Family Members: The following individuals have been recommended by the Elders for family membership at Crossroads. Please take a minute to review the list of names and inform the Elders of any issues with them by emailing them at elders@lifeatcrossroads.org in the next two weeks.

GO MINISTRY

Our November GO Partner Spotlight is Blanket Blessings, led by Crossroads member Megan Fick, a mercy ministry that reaches out to local and global communities. Megan and other volunteers tie blankets to be given to those in need locally, at public high schools, and to send with our missions’ teams to our partners around the world. They meet on the fourth Thursday of each month. If you are interested in becoming a part of this ministry, please email go@lifeatcrossroads.org.

GO Partner Christmas: 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 outdoor lobby and give to any of our global missionaries. Email go@lifeatcrossroads.org with any questions.

Union Rescue Mission: We need help baking cookies for men at the Union Rescue Mission Overcomer's Dinner. Sign up to bake 2-3 dozen cookies at the cart or by emailing go@lifeatcrossroads.org. Please drop your cookies off at the church office no later than Wednesday, December 7th, by 5 p.m.

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 lifeatcrossroads.org/give. All contributions to TEN are tax-deductible under IRS guidelines.
