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.
CHURCH WIDE EVENTS
Sunday School Promotion Sunday Is August 5 for Children’s Ministry through Student Ministry. If you have a child going into Kindergarten this coming school year and would like them to receive a Bible presented to them by our Pastor in the morning service, please call the church office at 901-309-7777 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org before August 1.
A Unique Service on August 19 at 6:00 PM. Sunday night, August 19 will be a special two-part celebration featuring a baptism service plus a Q & A with Dr. Mike Spradlin. To top off this fun evening we’ll have a churchwide ice cream fellowship. Childcare will be provided for ages birth–5-year-olds. Check out what we have planned:
Baptism, the Next Step. Following in the steps of Jesus in public baptism by immersion is a believer’s first demonstration of new life and obedience. Baptism is also an encouragement to fellow believers, especially those who may be struggling with taking that step of obedience as well. We have scheduled a special baptism service on August 19 at 6:00 PM. Are you ready to take that next step of baptism? We know that it can be difficult to schedule time for family and friends to be here on Sunday mornings, so perhaps this evening service will present a great opportunity for them to attend your baptism. Call the church office, 901-309-7777 to schedule your baptism either during the service on August 19 or at another time.
Let’s Play “Stump the Professor!” Have you got a list of theological questions you’ve always wanted to ask a seminary professor? Is there a verse or passage that you just can’t seem to grasp? Ever wanted to sit down with seminary president Dr. Mike Spradlin and find out exactly what a verse or word means in the Greek? Here’s your chance! Mark your calendar now for Sunday night, August 19 at 6:00 PM. Dr. Spradlin will be with us for a question and answer session where you can finally ask those tough questions. Come join us and see if you can “Stump the Professor!”
