This Week at Crossroads
LIFE CHOICES BANQUET
Life Choices Annual Banquet is Thursday October 25, 6:30 PM at Germantown Baptist Church. We have 24 seats reserved this year. There is no charge for the meal, but a request for financial support will be made that evening. If you interested in supporting Life Choices or interested in knowing more about this ministry, please reserve your seat by calling the church office at 309-7777. The deadline to reserve your seat is Monday, October 15.
If you are interested in ministering to families affected by Hurricane Florence, we suggest Tennessee Baptist Disaster Relief or Samaritan’s Purse at this time. These organizations are fully in place and already helping. Please visit these ministries at samaritanspurse.org/disaster/hurricane-florence/ or tndisasterrelief.org/contributions/ to donate. We will continue to monitor the specific needs and update you on ways you can be even more involved.
FALL FAMILY FESTIVAL
The annual Fall Family Festival will be held on Saturday, October 27 from 2:00 to 5:00 PM. There will be free hotdogs, Lickety Split ice cream, games, inflatables, a petting zoo, a train, “Trunk ‘r Treat” and more! Invite your friends and neighbors to join us for this time of fun and fellowship. Free ice cream for visitors!

This week is fall break. Please note that there will not be any Family Wednesday activities, on Wednesday, October 10..
HOLY LAND TRIP MEETING
Experience the Holy Land. Walk the streets where Jesus walked, and experience the places where the great stories of the Bible took place. Join Crossroads in association with Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary as we journey to the Holy Land, June 27-July 4, 2019. Rob Mullins will share more information with those interested next Sunday, October 14, following the service in the Awana Room.
FALL BREAK FOR AWANA
This week is Fall Break! Awana will resume on Wednesday, October 17 at 6:00 PM!
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD SHOEBOX MINISTRY
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to share the joy of Christmas with a child in need! Pick up and fill a “shoe” box! Boxes and instructions will be available in the Narthex on October 14. If possible, we ask that you include $9 to cover shipping. Please fill your box(es) and bring them back to the church before Wednesday, November 14. If you prefer to donate items rather than filling a box, we will accept loose items that can fit inside of a shoebox. If you’d like to make a donation to help cover the cost of shipping the boxes, you can make a donation to the church and designate Operation Shoebox on your envelope.
Children’s Choir. The Crossroads Children’s Choir (grades K-6th) will begin rehearsing Sunday, October 21 at 4:00 PM.
Youth Choir. The Crossroads Youth Choir (grades 7-12) rehearses today at 4:00 PM in room S-124. Mr. Greg Sims directs the choir which will be singing during various times in our worship services as well as for mission opportunities outside our church. Come worship the Lord with us!
