weekend report

As we began to prepare for one of the most important weekends of the year when we launch our Communities and Classes - we were joined by Pastor Dave's good friend Pastor Patrick Grach.  It was obvious that God hand-picked Patrick to speak to us about the Luke 2 passage explaining that God intended for us to need one another - to participate in gatherings and groups in order to love and serve one another!  It was great!

We worshiped together both in the main auditorium and our student ministry.   I heard music come from the back so I couldn't resist taking a picture of Ben leading our student worship team preparing to lead students to the Lord.  It was excellent!

Ben Stuckey leading our amazing student ministry band.
Our worship in the main auditorium included a very touching 'send out' prayer for Brooke and Keegan McQuate.  Keegan grew up at Crossroads and came back from college as an intern with us while Brooke was on our children's staff.  So encouraging to see young adults grow up in the church and then go out!  The raised hands in the congregation represent a promise to remember them in prayer!  So good!

A promise from our congregation to pray!
WORSHIP was SO strong - I was thankful to be there!
