CROSSROADS' BULLETIN

SPOTLIGHT ANNOUNCEMENT

PLUS (+) Ministry: Join us today under the white tent in our outdoor lobby to learn about what support we are hoping to offer to our family members with special needs in the upcoming months. If you have a child with special needs or are interested in serving with us, we will be outside the main campus to answer any questions you may have during all three services on November 6th and November 13th.

 

ALL CHURCH

This Sunday at Crossroads, Pastor Todd Smith will continue his series on the "Theology of Sexuality" with the topic "Are Gender Roles Holy or Hollywood?" 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 into account their presence. We seek to be biblical and sensitive with each Sunday topic. Here is the following sermon schedule: 

11/13 - Is Marriage Defined or Discovered? - Dr. Gene Getz 

11/20 - Is Sexuality Glandular or Godly?

Crossroads Christmas Party: Join us for our annual all-church Christmas party at the Valencia Ice Station on Sunday, December 4, from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm! Tickets are available now at www.lifeatcrossroads.org/signup. This year, we will "Fund the Farm" as we partner with Children's Hunger Fund to purchase farm animals for families in need around the world. You won't want to miss this night! We also need volunteers to help set up, serve food, and sell tickets at the door. If you would like to help serve, please email go@lifeatcrossroads.org or visit the Registration cart.

GO MINISTRY

Our November GO Partner Spotlight is Blanket Blessing, started by Crossroads member Megan Fick. This ministry ties blankets to be given to those in need locally and to send with our mission's teams to our global partners around the world. They meet on the fourth Thursday of each month, and are looking for more people to help! If you are interested in becoming a part of this ministry, please email go@lifeatcrossroads.org.

Christmas for Missionaries: As Christmas approaches, we want to bless our global GO partners with a special gift. For 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.

Be a part of serving at the Overcomer's Dinner at the Union Rescue Mission in downtown LA on Friday, December 9!

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.
