THIS WEEK AT CROSSROADS
TICKETS ON SALE FOR MID-AMERICA PASSION PLAY
The 2019 production, entitled Lord, I Believe, has a new theme and script. One of the twelve disciples, Thomas, doubts that the other disciples have seen Jesus in the flesh and will not believe in the resurrection of Jesus, until he sees the nail prints in Jesus’ hands and puts his hand in Jesus’ side, where the spear pierced. Tickets are on sale for the Mid-America Passion Play, April 11-14, at http://mabts.edu/passionplay .
TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY
Next Sunday, March 17, Crossroads Baptist Church will begin the Celebration of 10 years of reaching our neighbors and the nations with the Good News of Jesus Christ and His love.
Ike Reighard will be our special guest preacher to commence this joyous celebration. He is the Senior Pastor at Piedmont Church and is one of our pastor’s mentors and advisors. Ike is the author of four books as well as co-author of a daily devotional book with Zig Ziglar.

FAMILY OUTDOORS FESTIVAL & WILD GAME DINNER
Join us Saturday, March 30, for a fun family time celebrating the great outdoors. Beginning at 3:00 PM, there will be supervised activities for kids such as BB gun target shooting, a rock climbing wall, archery, and much more. Several outdoor-related companies and Tennessee wildlife officers will be on hand displaying products and providing information. Family admission to this event is any prepared dish – meat (whether it’s wild or not), vegetable or a dessert. We will provide kid-friendly food. This is a pot-luck dinner that you won’t see anywhere else and will begin at 5:00 PM and be followed by some hair-raising stories by popular outdoors editor, author and radio host, Larry Rea. This is a family outreach event, so bring yours, and bring guests too. And be sure to register to win door prize. Fun, Food & Fellowship … right here at Crossroads.
There will be no Family Wednesday Activities this week due to Spring Break. However, the Adult Choir will rehearse at 7:00 PM.
