Announcements, Nov. 6, 2015
This Sunday we’ll hit pause on our series through “The Sermon on the Mount” to consider the meaning, significance, and importance of baptism in the life of a Christian and in the local church. I encourage you to read Romans 6:3–4, which will serve as our primary text. And, after the message, we’ll celebrate the gospel as three members of CrossPointe are baptized. Looking forward to gathering with you!
Grace and peace,
Fall Picnic (Nov. 11, 11 a.m.) || Join us for a picnic at Flat Rock Park! We’ll provide the fried chicken and drinks, and everyone is asked to bring a side to share. (Bring yard-games, lawn-chairs, and bikes, too, if you have them!) RSVP by contacting Nicole Carey.
ADOPT(ed) (Nov. 15, 5:30–7:30 p.m.) || Orphan Sunday is around the corner, and this year CrossPointe will participate by hosting Rick Morton, author of books like Orphanology.
