"The Ride of Your Life"
Sermon Series

Get ready for the "Ride of Your Life".
Join us this week as we blaze a new trail with ourselves
and within our community that leads us to a life
beyond our wildest dreams. 

Saddle up your horses
We've got a trail to blaze
Through the wild blue yonder
Of God's amazing grace

Let's follow our Leader
Into the glorious unknown
This is a life like no other
This is the great adventure,

Please join us October 4 as we learn how our gifts are as
different as our individual personalities, dreams and experiences.
We will learn of possibilities beyond our wildest dreams!

Family Fishing Was a Success

Wow! 102 peopel showed up to enjoy fishing, food and fellowship. We enjoyed a great evening outside catching fish, eating home-made ice cream and visiting with fellow church members. A BIG thank you to Tom and Pat Mais for opening their home and back yard for the event. Also a thank you to the over 20 volunteers who showed up to make sure things went smoothly. Most importantly thanks to God for blessing this event in so many ways.

Hope to see you there next year!

Youth Stocks for Sale

Youth Stocks will be on sale through the month of September. This is one of the primary fund raising activities for Crossroads. A majority of the money goes to support the youth mission trip. By purchasing "Youth Stocks", you are making an "investment" in the lives of our youth as well as in your future as we are developing the Christian leaders of tomorrow. All "stockholders" will receive "dividends" such as Super Bowl subs, youth labor, car detailing etc...  There are four different levels of support for sale. Please see the table in the narthex on Sunday mornings. Thanks for your support. It does make a difference. In the words of one of our youth, "I love knowing that I've made a difference in people's lives and all the people I've served have made differences in my life."

Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
