This Week at Crossroads
REMEMBER TO PRAY AT 1:25
Our pastor has encouraged us to pray daily at 1:25, either AM or PM, for our VISION 20/20 Master Plan. The time 1:25 represents our street address here on Houston Levee. Pray for the Finance Team, the Building Team, our leadership, the architect, the contractor, and for God to supply the needed funds through the faithful giving of His people.
FROM OUR PASTOR
Nehemiah Special Offering Sundays. Crossroads Family and friends, because of your faithful giving we are able to add parking places and complete the balcony drawings within the next few months! These are fully funded with the gifts you have already provided above and beyond our required budget. What an incredible testimony of God’s faithfulness through your faithfulness to Him.
The steady growth we continue to see even here in the middle of the summer months is undeniably showing the impact our Crossroads family is having on our neighbors. We now have a Sunday worship attendance average of 465. That’s a record for us! You are sharing the good news of Jesus, inviting friends and neighbors, and showing the love of Christ to each person that you meet. Even our VBS attendance was nearly half visitors—that is an impact not only on children but their parents and grandparents alike.
The VISION 20/20 challenge is before us, and He has already given us victory. Over three specific Sundays, August 28, September 2 and September 9, we are asking that we as a family would allow the Lord to pour out a financial blessing upon this, His church, to take the next step toward the VISION 20/20 Master Plan construction. We are claiming Malachi 3:10 (NIV), “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.”
Please continue to pray with Vicki and me about what you can give currently but also on these three very special Sundays. Pray also that the Lord will show us through our prayerful faithfulness how He wants us to proceed in the building expansion and that He will find us faithful to the vision of reaching others for Christ. You are greatly loved and appreciated. Thank you!
For Our Neighbors and the Nations to the Glory of God,

CROSSROADS ON MISSION
Life Choices “Bottles for Life” Campaign. Life Choices recently announced the final results of the “Bottles for Life” campaign and Crossroads was their second largest contributor this year! What incredible testimony to Crossroads’ commitment to the importance of the sanctity of life. The overall campaign raised over $50,000 for the work done by Life Choices here in Memphis. Thank you for your sacrifice of time and effort, which will impact the lives of our neighbors and the nations through your support of Life Choices.
