Church Highlights – The week of March 30, 2019


ANNOUNCEMENTS:

COVID-19 and Quarantine
As of right now, the state of Michigan is still under a quarantine, and will be so for the foreseeable future. Please do your best to stay in, practice good hygiene, and stay healthy! We will continue to post orders of worship every week on the website until our time of quarantine is over. Look for these on Saturday, and for an email from pastor Doug. In the meantime, please contact the pastors or the elders if you have any needs!

Secret Church Simulcast – Friday, April 24
Crossway will again host the Secret Church Simulcast. This simulcast is led by David Platt, and it is an intense time of Bible study and prayer for the persecuted church. The theme this year is God, Government, and the Gospel. Given the quarantine, and the church’s response to it, this is an excellent time to be thinking through these relationships! It will begin at Crossway at 6:00 pm, and finish around 12:30 am. The cost for the material is $8. Please email pastor Doug (doug_wallaker@yahoo.com) if you plan to attend. Right now, we are not sure how the simulcast will be handled; please check in as we move closer to the date for more information.

Daily Bible Reading Plan
Each year Crossway puts forward a Bible reading plan, and this year will be no exception. We believe that the best way to grow in the Lord and to mature in the faith is to be constantly filling your mind with the word of God. In order to facilitate this, Crossway is again using the Bible Project’s reading plan and videos. The videos are a helpful way to see the importance of each book, and to give helpful background material needed to better understand them. Look for posts each week on our main page, and keep reading!

Ministry Opportunities
One of the ways we show our love for one another in the body of Christ is to serve the church in its various functions. There are many opportunities for members to serve the church here at Crossway. These opportunities include: cleaning, mowing, transportation, soundboard, music, security, and fellowship meals. If you would like to engage in one of these areas, please see one of the elders and they can direct you to the ministry contact person.

TOGETHER IN WORD AND PRAYER:

Bible Project Reading Plan (Week 14):
2 Samuel 19-24; 1 Kings 1-16; Psalms 92-98

Next Sunday’s Sermon Text:
John 14:8-14

Prayer for Missions: Pray for our NAMB Missionary Shakil, his wife Angela and his family in Hamtramck, Michigan. They are ministering to Pakistani Muslims that are located in this community, and are in desperate need of God’s Word. Pray that relationships are formed, that the gospel penetrates the community, and churches are planted among this people group.

Prayer for the World: Pray for our local universities, including especially the students and the professors. Pray that what is taught accords with the truth, and honors God. Pray for revival in the academic fields of America. Pray for the faith of many who enter places of learning that are set against the gospel.

Prayer for Ministries: Pray for our local BABA sister church Sunrise and our Associational Missions Strategist Dave Roberts and his wife Melissa. Pray that Dave leads our association to greater unity and partnership in the gospel. Pray that the gospel might be preached with vigor and zeal and heard with earnest ears. Pray that the leaders of these churches shepherd their flocks well, and that their people make their service joyful. Pray that they might reap a glorious harvest for the glory of the name of Jesus Christ our Lord!
