This Week at Cross Church | New Series Begins Sunday

Did God Really Say?

Did God Really Say-twacc

This Sunday, we are beginning a new message series on the entire book of Genesis entitled, “Did God Really Say?” Beginning on May 21, we will teach from the book of Genesis throughout the entire summer. I enjoyed teaching our Living With Purpose series so much, but there is nothing like teaching a book of the Bible to God’s people. Our agenda beginning Sunday: the Book of Genesis. Begin reading it. Bring a friend.

Summer Program of Giving is May 28 – September 3

First Things-twacc

The financial goal for our Summer Program of Giving over the fifteen weeks of summer is $5,580,000. This is our weekly budget requirement for the weeks of May 28 – September 3, plus $150,000 for scholarships for all of our camps. Our goal for each of you and ourselves is to give at least the first tenth of all God has given us each week. Be faithful to give if you are in worship each Sunday or away on a time of vacation. You can set up recurring giving to occur even while you are away. You can learn more about that here. Join us in reaching this goal for the glory of God to reach Northwest Arkansas, America, and the world for Jesus Christ.

Congratulations to Gina Franzke for 25 Years at Cross Church

Franzke Fam-twacc

Twenty-five years ago, we called Gina Franzke to join our Ministry Team. She was a single adult, just out of college. Now she is married to Ed and they have two beautiful daughters, Meredith and Katelyn. They are a wonderful family that we love so much, and we are so grateful they have been on our team all these years. She has had several roles on our team. Now she is the leader of our Women’s Ministry and First Impressions Ministry on our Springdale Campus. We are thankful for Gina’s heart, refreshing humor, and the spirit she adds to our team. Gina, Ed, Meredith, and Katelyn, we love you and are so thankful to God for you.

Pray For Our Ministry Team and Their Spouses This Week

I’d like to ask you to please pray for our Ministry Team and their spouses this week. I have listed their names and how we can pray for them in agreement in Jesus’ name. Here is the list:

Call out to God for each of our Ministry Team members and their spouses by name, appealing to God for each of them to deepen their walk with God personally and their marriage together so God can raise them up to be used in the highest capacity as leaders in our church.

“To sum up, each one of you is to love his wife as himself, and the wife is to respect her husband.” Ephesians 5:33
