Looking Forward to Seeing You in Worship on Sunday
This Sunday, I will be preaching God’s Word at Cross Church. On Saturday evening, I will return from Israel with great anticipation and will be speaking on Sunday from the book of Romans. Our series, BY FAITH, has been splendid. I know last week in our absence, the Word was well-received. Always thank those who stand and proclaim the Scripture. We are so blessed to have these men of God.
Israel Has Been Special
A week ago as we left for Israel, we knew coming to this Land is always special. This time has been no exception. I am not sure how many times Jeana and I have been, but each time we are challenged, learn, grow, and fall in love with the Lord and His Word again in a fresh way. Today, we conclude the Epicenter Prayer Summit with Joel Rosenberg and Anne Graham Lotz. On Friday, we conclude our last day of touring in Israel. Please pray for this final day here as well as for safety and protection as our entire group travels back to Northwest Arkansas.
Reports from Our Vacation Bible Extreme
Over the years, God has been faithful to draw children to Himself using the avenue of our Vacation Bible School, and this year has been no different. We are praising God that across our four campuses, we have seen record-breaking attendance with over 2,300 children and Dream Teamers, hundreds of seeds of the Gospel planted, and dozens of children come to know Jesus as their Savior! Thank you to the many volunteers who have given a week to this worthy and magnificent task. Tonight, we conclude this incredible week as our Children’s Ministry staff and Dream Teamers will once again bring the gospel before both children and families at family night. Be in prayer as your church, BY FAITH, continues to reach the next generation for Jesus.
So Much is Before Us at Cross Church
As we invest in this ministry with our life, service, commitment, and resources entrusted to us by the Lord, I want to remind us we have so much more before us at Cross Church. Thank you for all you have done and are doing. Thank you in advance for what you will do in the future. As we are now mid-way through the summer, it is a good time to check out where you are in your financial giving to the Lord weekly. Now is the time to evaluate as we move toward our real goals of:
- Each member honoring the Lord weekly with at least the first tenth of all God provides financially.
- Each member demonstrating this kind of faithfulness for thirteen weeks of the summer from Memorial Day Sunday through Labor Day Sunday, regardless of where they may be.
- Our church will flourish in all the ministries of this summer as well as our most important ministry, which is day-to-day all year, reaching Northwest Arkansas, America, and the world for Jesus Christ.
This is only possible with God’s blessing and leadership in our lives personally. Thank you again.
Pray for This Sunday at Cross Church
As we enter into the final day of this week, let’s pray for the worship services on each campus at Cross Church this Sunday. As well, pray for our people to invite others to worship. Finally, ask the Lord to open up gospel conversations through our people even before Sunday, and pray we see these conversations turn into strong personal commitments to Jesus Christ.
See You Sunday,
Ronnie W. Floyd
