This past weekend was big here in Northwest Arkansas and beyond! We are truly grateful to God for all He did last week and this past Easter weekend.
I must express my deep gratitude to each of our volunteers for all you did last week at Cross Church. You are amazing! You know who you are, so please know I am grateful.
Additionally, our staff team served valiantly! From Easter in the Community, to Passion Week luncheons, Friday night’s extraordinary performance by our Worship Ministry, and our 15 Easter weekend services, God demonstrated Himself strong among us. I am thankful to God for His work and for each of our staff team members.
Easter Weekend News from Our Church Plants
The Lord moved through our church plants across North America in a great way. Your investment in the gospel has paid great dividends. Thank you, Cross Church!
For example, at Cross Church Maine, located in Portland, they had their highest attendance since their January launch. There were 210 people present, with over 100 guests. Several people came to Christ! This is extraordinary in this highly secular environment. We are so grateful to God for Dr. Aaron and Kathy Werner.
Another example is what God did this past weekend through Pastor Doug Hixson and his wife, Dana. He is the Pastor of the Connection Church in Spearfish, South Dakota. This is still a fairly new church plant. Listen to what your investment did for the gospel in South Dakota. Pastor Hixson writes:
We had 300+ in Spearfish. We think maybe 315, but it is hard to count in our new space. Belle Fourche had 140 and Sioux Falls had 43. That is right at 500 between the three. Four years ago when we launched Spearfish we had 50, so we saw God expand our territory 10 fold in four years.
Praise God for all He is doing! What a miracle!
Where Do We Go From Here?
Most importantly, we move forward to this coming Sunday, expecting God to meet with us powerfully. We are very excited about our new series on HOPE. This coming week, our message will be “Hope Through Judgment.” I sure hope you do not miss it. This series will provide some great moments! Join us!
Yours for the Great Commission,
