Announcements, Nov. 18, 2016
Every time we end a series through a book of the Bible I feel like I go through a kind of withdrawal. I’ll miss 1 Timothy and hope it has been beneficial to us as a church. On that note, I feel a pastoral burden to share with you some of my reflections from 1 Timothy about our life together as a local church. So, this Sunday will be a bit unique in that I will not expound on a particular text, but rather seek to reflect and apply some of the key themes of 1 Timothy to CrossPointe as a body. I’m looking forward to it!
Next Sunday we’ll begin a short Advent series as we look at Christ in the Old Testament, and then we’ll begin Romans in the new year. Can’t wait!
Grace and peace,
Newcomers’ Lunch (Sunday, after worship) || If you’ve begun attending CrossPointe in the last few months and would like to know more about the church, please join us for lunch after worship!

New Children’s Ministry Curriculum Lunches || If you currently serve in CM rooms 7–11, be on the lookout for an invitation in the mail. We’ve chosen a new curriculum for CM, and we want to tell you all about it! When you get your invitation, pick a Sunday (Nov. 27, Dec. 4, or Dec. 11) and get excited to see how we’ll be reaching our kids with the gospel in the upcoming year.
