December 30, 2018 Weekend Announcements

December 30, 2018



This Sunday, Pastor Ed will preach a sermon entitled “A new prayer for a new year.” Next Sunday, Pastor Todd will begin a new series entitled The Will of God.

Sermon Resources:  Pastor Todd preaches out of the English Standard Version (ESV). Sermon notes are available online at or blank sheets located in the lobby.

2018 Year-End Financial Goal: Our 2018 budget was challenging to nail down as we entered a brand new campus. Yet God was good to us by helping us land on exactly the number we need in 2018. If we can hit our budget by the end of December we will finish the year flush.  Our December giving need is $650K. Would you prayerfully consider an over and above year-end gift to Crossroads?

Go Spotlight:  Connect2 Ministries was begun by Crossroads member, Greg Barshaw, and works to connect churches in the United States with churches in the developing world. Through these partnerships, teams are sent on mission trips to their orphanage homes, where they can help provide resources, do maintenance work on the buildings, and love the children in the homes. The ministry currently has two homes for homeless, orphaned, and at-risk children in Haiti. They are also currently building the Vocational Training Center, which will empower both the local community and the children in the homes as they reach adulthood by offering education in practical skills such as tailoring, auto mechanics, baking and animal husbandry, as well as small business management.
