Church Highlights – The week of May 31, 2021


ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Women’s Bible Study – Thursday, June 17th
All women are invited to come to the next Bible study on Thursday, June 17th at 6:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall.  We will be continuing our study on the book of James. If you have any questions, or plan on attending, please see Jenny LaBo. We hope to see you there! 

Prayer Service – Wednesday, June 23rd
Crossway will gather together for a time of corporate prayer from 6:30-8:00 pm. We 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). Along with other prayer requests, we will be reading and praying through the Psalms. Come join us as we seek the Lord together!

Special Called Members’ Meeting – Sunday, June 27th
There will be a brief, special called members’ meeting following the morning service on Sunday, June 27th. This meeting will be to vote on membership for Nate LaBo, contingent upon his baptism.

Nursery Help
As Crossway continues to grow, so does the need for help in many areas. One of the greatest needs we have right now is help in the nursery. If you are a member of Crossway, and would like to volunteer your time and service in this area, please see Al Tremble. Thank you!

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 years past, Crossway has used the Bible Project’s reading plan and videos (which we still highly recommend!). This year, in order to change things up a bit, we will be using a different reading plan, which focuses on providing reading for 5 days out of the week, allowing for some time to catch up if needed. The plans will be available in the front foyer, or online here. Be resolute this year to read and enjoy God’s gracious word!

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:

5-Day Reading Plan (Week 24):
Proverbs 16-28; Romans 15-16; 1 Thessalonians 1-3; Psalms 40-41, 117

Next Sunday’s Sermon Text:
Romans 3:1-8

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 Missionary 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!
