This month will go down in the short history of Crosspoint Church as a month to take note of. I have been replaying this month over and over in my head. All I keep coming back to is “Glory be to God!”
Here are some things to celebrate…
* We had over 550 people in attendance each Sunday the last 3 weeks of the month. That is a jump of 90 people in one week!
* We had 26 people accept Jesus Christ as their savior this month, that is 1 less then the last three months combined. Go God, that is awesome!!!
* This past Sunday we had people write down the names of over 600 people they are investing in, inviting and praying for to come to know Jesus as their Lord & Savior.
* We had 50, yes 50 first time guest families come this month,, that is more then the last two months combined.
* We had the highest monthly offering ever in the history of Crosspoint, over $41,000. That is 25% higher then last August.
* We turned 4 years old as a church. I knew God could do it, it was me I doubted.
* We hired our first Student Ministry director and are planning our first event ans already have over 70 teenagers signed up. This is unbelievable. I love teenagers and I cannot wait to see what God is going to do.
Here are some things to be excited about…
* On Sept 12 were are kicking off our Land Campaign to raise $1 million to purchase up to 25 acres of land to build future facilities on. Yes I said $1 million, i know that sounds like a lot of money (it is) but we have a 3 year plan to do it.
* We put together a great Capitol Campaign Leadership team to oversee this for the next three years. They are awesome, I am so excited for their gifts, abilities and most importantly their faith and heart.
* We are going to see God bring even more people to faith in Jesus then ever before in the history of our church.
* God is going to stretch all of us through this campaign, and is going to do things that only He can do, through the generous and obedient sacrifices of His people.
This is a new season for Crosspoint Church and for all of us it can seem like a little overwhelming. But for God it is exactly what he has planned for us at this time to be able to reach this community for Jesus.
To God be the glory! Let’s Seize the Day.
In God’s Hands
