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
In just a few weeks, Crossroads Baptist Church will begin a Celebration of 10 years of reaching its neighbors and the nations.

Throughout the coming year, we will hear testimonies from the past as well as inspiring visions of the great challenges ahead for God’s mighty church.
