Commissioning Mid Tree Church
This Sunday will be a special one for CrossPointe. We will commission the Mid Tree Church core-team on their last Sunday with us before they start meeting together as a church on the first Sunday of July. Our text will be 2 Timothy 4:5, in which Paul exhorts Timothy to “fulfill your ministry.” My plan is to zero in on these three words as we consider what it means to send and plant another Christ-centered, gospel-preaching, Bible-believing, Spirit-empowered church in our area.
As for the rest of the summer, I’m really excited about what we have planned for the five Sundays in July. We’ll do a brief series entitled, “Jesus on the Christian Life,” in which we’ll examine what Jesus has to say about some very important issues for believers in their walk with Him. Here’s a rough sketch of the topics for those Sundays in July:
- July 1: Jesus on Salvation (what it means to be saved)
- July 8: Jesus on Sanctification (what it means to grow)
- July 15: Jesus on Gender (what it means to be man and woman)
- July 22: Jesus on Missions (what it means to be spread the Good News)
- July 29: Jesus on Eternity (what it means to live forever)
Finally, in August, we’ll pick back up in Romans 9.
I’m looking forward to seeing you this Sunday!
