The Miracle of God Being With Us
This Sunday, The Christmas Miracle series continues as we speak on The Miracle of God Being With Us. I am loving this series of messages on Matthew 1:18—Matthew 2:12. As we walk through this powerful text verse-by-verse, our Lord is demonstrating to us the power of God’s Word. This Sunday would be a fantastic day to bring someone to worship with you at Cross Church. They will be encouraged greatly. Stop right now and text, email, or call someone and ask them to join you at Cross Church on Sunday.

Before 2018 Concludes… Evaluate Where You Are Personally
Life is about to get really fast during this season. If we are not careful, we will look up and the year will have ended without taking the time to evaluate where we are personally. We can do this in regards to our spiritual life, our physical health, our personal relationships, and our emotional health. One of THE most tangible ways we can evaluate is where we are financially. Here is where to begin. Ask yourself this question and answer honestly: Have we honored God by giving at least the first one-tenth of all He has given to us through our local church in 2018 and if not yet, are we ready to do so before December 31? We need to evaluate everything financially in a serious manner: personal finances in salary, bonuses, or additional income related to dividends, stock, inheritance, or property in the year of 2018. If you have any questions, please contact Ben Mayes in our Financial Department of Cross Church by calling 479.751.4523.
Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions
Above your gifts to the Ministry Budget of Cross Church, I would like to encourage each of us to make a special sacrificial gift to International Missions in December. Jeana and I have done so this week. We do it because we want every person to hear the gospel message. One-half of the budget for our 3,600 missionaries on the field across the world is met through this offering. Just under 52,000 churches and congregations of the Southern Baptist Convention will give an estimated $170 million to this offering. We can do more together than we can ever do alone. Be part of this big opportunity. If you want to learn more about the story of Lottie Moon and this offering, go here.
