This Sunday at Crossroads: This Sunday, Pastor Todd Smith will teach from selected Scriptures for a special Father's Day message. Next week, Pastor Todd will continue with our "Birthmarks" series through the book of 1 John.
Serving Opportunity: Connections Ministry We are looking for individuals to partner with us in our new Connections Ministry. This ministry is geared toward helping others find connections during our weekend services. We have several areas for you to plug into, so if you're interested, stop by Information Central in our outdoor lobby to find a full list of available service opportunities.
Baby Bottle Boomerang: Today is the final drop-off day for your baby bottles. Please bring your filled bottle back to the cart by the end of Sunday services.
Go Partner Spotlight: This month, our Go Partner spotlight is Peter and Heather Malakar, who are serving in Central Asia. Peter and Heather have several major ministries, including building relationships with the community through a music and language center they recently took ownership of. They also are involved in training church leaders, providing medical care to the underprivileged, and reaching out to university students through teaching English. Peter mainly serves as the pastor of Capital Bible Church and is also a doctor overseeing the medical clinic. Please pray for the Malakar family as they seek to share Christ in a country and culture dominated by Hinduism.
