From Pastor John Meador - Three Important Words to Close 2019
Dear Church Family,
I trust you've had a great Christmas! I very much enjoyed seeing many of you at our Christmas Eve services. We have one more Sunday to go in 2019 before we launch into 2020, which is sure to be a fantastic year!
Before we get to 2020, however, consider what God has done in our church in 2019—through you! We've begun to enact long-range vision with promising results. We started our satellite services at the North Campus in January, and our North Christmas Eve service (one of three across our campuses) celebrated with 241 in attendance! We've agreed on a Euless Campus renovation plan and have made great strides in preparing to start the Generations Project. Cross City Church has a new name that is resonating and a great new vision for impacting our area—all while preserving our strong Southern Baptist heritage and commitment to biblical and practical ministry. We've continued to shine brightly in our changing world.
As we pause at the end of 2019 to consider how to best invest our prayers, giving, and commitment, let's all place Cross City Church in a prominent place in our hearts for these last few days of this year. God's calling and our mission have not changed: we're here to lead all people to follow Jesus. How we END this year makes a big difference in how we START the new year. Together, let's keep the mission in front of us and finish well!
Here are three important words to remember as we close 2019: 1) Pray, 2) Commit, and 3) Give. Pray for 2020. Commit not to miss a Sunday of our "We Are" series in January. Give a generous year-end gift to Cross City Church to help us close out an amazing year. Our last Sunday is this weekend, and your online giving can help make a difference right up to midnight of December 31 (envelopes postmarked by December 31 will also count in 2019). You can give online or get more information about year-end giving at crosscity.church/give.
Pray! Commit! Give! Together, we can launch into 2020 with significant momentum.
