This Sunday at Crossroads: This Sunday, Pastor Todd Smith starts a brand-new series called "Autopsy of a Church," looking at the Churches of Revelation beginning in Revelation 2:1-7. Next week, Pastor Ken Kistler will be teaching from Revelation 2:8-11.
Crossroads Anniversary Sunday: Crossroads Community Church's 10th anniversary is coming up on August 21 at all three Sunday services. This is a great time for celebration and vision casting for our church as we look forward to the new ministry year. We'll be celebrating with the In-n-Out truck this year, so make sure to mark your calendars!
Marriage Ministry: Our Marriage Ministry has three parts—prepare, enrich, and restore. We want to help prepare couples for marriage, help those who are married to enjoy their marriage for a lifetime, and restore marriages that are struggling. We will be launching our Restore ministry this fall for those who need to resurrect or reignite their marriage. We are offering a pilot of this new material this summer, and it will be led by Jeff and Denise Tritt. If you are interested in possibly helping with this ministry or have questions about joining the pilot, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Prayer For Active Duty Service Members: Can we pray for your service member? To honor our active duty service men and women and remind us to pray for them and their families while they are in harm's way, Crossroads is launching a Military Prayer Reminder in the lobby, where we will post their pictures and where they are actively serving. If you have a family member serving on active duty who could use our community's prayer support, please contact Stark Howell at email@example.com.
Our Go Partner Spotlight of the month is James Townley, who is a missionary with Pioneers in Albania. James has been serving in Albania for a little over a year now. His ministry is to reach out to the Roma people, a minority group who are outcast from the society and unreached by the gospel. He does this by building relationships, meeting their physical and spiritual needs, and through soccer outreach, in hopes of making disciples and planting an indigenous church. Please pray for James as he continues to learn the language and build relationships, as well as for his safety.
Men's Breakfast: Men, join us for our annual Men's Summer Breakfast on Saturday, July 16! Our guest speaker will be Mike Penberthy, a former Los Angeles Laker, who won championships alongside Kobe Byrant and Shaquille O'Neal. Come to South Campus from 8:00 to 9:30 a.m. for a time of fellowship and a hearty breakfast of Tri-Tip hash and eggs. Sign up today at www.lifeatcrossroads.org/signup or Registration Central.
Ladies' Summer Bible Studies: We have three different Bible study groups available this summer on Wednesdays at our south campus! We will be offering one morning group and two evening groups. To learn more about each study's topic or to get registered, visit www.lifeatcrossroads.org/signup. Childcare will not be available during these summer studies.
Crossroads Community Church Medical and Liability Release Form: Elevate parents, your child should have a CCC Medical and Liability Release form on file so as to participate in any Elevate off-site activities. This form must be renewed each calendar year.

Student Summer Camp 2016: Elevate Student Ministry Summer Camp sign-ups are open now. Elevate students will be attending Hume Lake Christian Camps from July 31 to August 6. Spots are limited, so email email@example.com to find out about availability!
NexGen Vacation Bible School: Crossroads will host its first summer Vacation Bible School from July 18 to July 22, for kids in the 1st to the 6th grades.

Additional sons are $25 each. You can sign yourself and your son up at www.lifeatcrossroads.org/signup.
