Church Highlights – The week of September 17, 2018


ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Crossway Women’s Book Discussion – September 19th
On August 15th, women are invited to Panera Bread here in Bay City at 7 p.m. to read and discuss Jen Wilkin’s book None Like Him. The meeting will be for a time of prayer, fellowship, and discussion of a portion of the book. If you are interested, please see Breanne Wallaker or Tracy Brubaker. Books are available for those who would like them; a $5 donation is asked for those who can provide it. The meetings will occur on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month. Take this opportunity to gather for fellowship and learn about the greatness of our God!

Community Groups – Sunday, September 23rd
This week our Community Groups will be considering what a correct understanding of the difficult topic of church discipline should look like in Nine Marks of a Healthy Church. A study guide with helpful questions is available on the back table of the church. If you currently are not a part of a community group, this would be the perfect time to join one! Contact the elders, and we would gladly help you find a group that would be best for you.

Prayer Service – Wednesday, September 26th
We at Crossway believe it is critical for the church to pray together for our members, for our community, and for our global missionaries (Acts 2:42, Eph 6:16-20, Col 4:2-4, 2 Thess 3:1). We believe that by meeting mid-week, it will help us to better fulfill the Bible’s commands regarding prayer, and help build community as we seek the Lord together. Come and join us as we pray through the Bible, and pray for the needs of our church and our community! If you have any questions, please see one of the elders.

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:

Local Prayer:
Pray for our outreach program at Center Ridge Arms. Pray for opportunities to connect with the residents, show them love, and share the gospel. Pray that many receive the truth of Christ and turn to him in repentance and faith.

Global Prayer:
Pray for Randy Sweet and Rick Streu as they go to travel Canada on Sept 29-30. They will be ministering among the Tamil people group in Toronto, preaching in multiple services. Please pray for safety in their travels, that the gospel would be clear, and that God would be working in heart and minds, strengthening Christians and calling unbelievers to himself.
