GO MINISTRY

 

Regretfully, due to the predicted bad weather, we decided to postpone GO Sunday. We will reschedule it and let you know the new date. We will still be having our Short Term Missions meeting next Sunday, January 29.

 

Interested in being part of a missions trip this year? Join us Sunday, January 29, at either 9:30 or 11:00 a.m. for our Short-Term Missions Meeting. We will be meeting at our North Campus to talk about our GO Trips to Haiti, Mexico, and Alaska. Please email go@lifeatcrossroads.org with any questions.

 

Sunday, January 22, is Sanctity of Life Sunday and marks the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision on abortion. Beyond counseling, the SCV Pregnancy Center also offers a Bible study to help those affected by abortion. Please call them at 661-255-0084 for more information on the study or on how to get involved with the giving of your time or resources.

 

Nathan and Naomi Gapper are our GO Partners spotlight for January. They serve in East Asia, reaching out to the locals and the largely Muslim population. Their main goal is to build relationships with individuals in the hopes of sharing the gospel. Nathan will often board the local train and/or bus to go to outlying villages to support underground house churches and help equip these pastors to better share the gospel. For security reasons, more information cannot be given, but we ask you to continue to pray for Nathan, Naomi, and their two children. Pray for God’s will and divine appointments.

 

GROW MINISTRY

COLLEGE MINISTRY

New at Crossroads!

We will begin meeting February 9th, 7 - 9 p.m. For details and location contact Graham Kelley at Kelleygsk@gmail.com.

 

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.
