This Christmas our goal for Cross Points is to be lights where God has placed us, and to do this we are going to serve the children and families in our communities.
So, here are the two ways we are asking you to get involved this season.
First, adopt a child for Christmas. Schools in our communities have given us names of children and families who just need a little help this Christmas. You can be a light to these families by providing parents gifts to give their children.
In the lobby, you will find a table with different names and ages of children you can choose from.
Maybe you can not shop or purchase gifts, that’s okay, we would appreciate any donations for these families.
The second way we are going to serve the children and families in our community is by locking arms with Shawnee Community Services.
On Saturday, December 16, Cross Points will help put on a Christmas Carnival for the families in the Kansas City area. You and your family can serve families in need for just a little over an hour at The Shawnee Civic Center.
In addition to serving, Shawnee Services is asking us to bring a wrapped board game and a bag of candy to give as a family gift. We need a lot of volunteers, so please sign up at the same table in the lobby.
We want to challenge each of you to be a light this Christmas!
Cost: This is a free event, however, we will be accepting donations that will go towards this summer’s VBS
Are you in need of a date night or just some quiet time in but don’t want to go through the trouble of finding a babysitter? Well, problem solved!
Cross Points Church wants to give you the night off and provide your kiddos with a spectacular fun-filled night! We will have games, crafts, a movie & popcorn. All of our leaders are screened, trained, and have gone through a background check. So, you can rest easy that your little ones are in good hands.
Please note that this is not just for Cross Points Church members. Feel free to share this event and invite your friends.
Have you ever felt like not celebrating Christmas? Maybe the holiday season seems empty, dreary, even dark. This Christmas season, join us as we take time out of our busy schedules to remember the reason for all the hustle and bustle. We will remind ourselves that Jesus is the Light of the World and the Hope of all humanity.
This Advent season join us as we talk about Jesus, the Light of the World.
Come celebrate and experience a Merry and Bright Christmas!
The Word gave life to everything that was created, and His life brought light to everyone. John 1:4
Peter comes in from the night, tired, and distraught. He begins to clean his nets, when a man, the one whom he had seen teaching the crowds earlier, stepped onto his boat and called him to go into deeper waters. I can only imagine how Peter felt. He responds, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.” (Luke 5:5). He had hit his limit, but the Lord asked him to go deeper. And as Peter went out into deeper waters, despite reaching his personal capacity, his nets overflowed with fish.
Deeper. Capacity. Overflow.
Join us this month as we discuss heading into deeper waters and what God is doing around the world. Also join us for the events of Missions Week, November 12-19.
We all dream of doing big things. We desire to make a big difference in our family, our job or our world. Too often, we make huge plans and major resolutions, but we get burned out, and we can’t keep them. However, if we consistently do the little (but important) things we’ll discover we can make a big impact. This month, we focus on the little things of life, so the big things will fall into place.
