New Campus in Fayetteville Opens Sunday
This Sunday will be the realization of a vision we have had in our hearts for years: A new campus in Fayetteville. While our present setting has served a high purpose and met the initial need, now we enlarge our footprint and move toward a greater opportunity. No less than ten years ago, our Lord placed into our hearts the vision for a Fayetteville Campus. Seven years ago, our present work began. In these first seven years, we have seen:
- 1,600+ baptized
- 2,000+ professions of faith
We give God praise for all He is doing! Here is Pastor Nick informing our region about this Sunday. I do hope you will pray for all that will happen at the Fayetteville Campus this Sunday and beyond! All of our campuses give God alone the glory for all He will do!
Freedom Weekend was a Great Success
This past weekend, 1,085 students and leaders participated in our 2018 Freedom Weekend. We saw 77 students come to Christ with 30 students being baptized. Additionally, 61 surrendered to full-time Christian Ministry. What a powerful weekend, and we thank all of our Student Ministry Staff Team and volunteers for leaving a legacy by investing in our students.
Thanks to Our Communications Team for This Outstanding Work
Our Communications Team put together a strong and wonderful video for I Love My Church Day. You may want to see it again or share it on social media. Additionally, our terrific team put together this 1-minute prayer video that has now received over 236,000 views on Facebook. We should be encouraged by the outstanding Communications Team we have here at Cross Church. Much of what we do could not be accomplished without them.
Time Change & Special Guest Joel Rosenberg on March 11
On Sunday, March 11, we welcome the “spring forward” time change, and Joel Rosenberg comes to Cross Church once again. Joel will be speaking at our Springdale campus at 9:15 a.m. and Pinnacle Hills campus at 10:55 a.m. You will not want to miss hearing from Joel, so turn your clocks ahead one hour when you go to bed on Saturday, March 10, and join us at Springdale or Pinnacle Hills.
Then, at 5 p.m. in the Chapel on the Springdale Campus, Joel will join Jeana and me in our informational meeting for our upcoming Israel trip, where we’ll also discuss the one-day conference we’ll experience in Israel. If you have interest in going with us to Israel or are already signed up, don’t miss this time with Joel. He will be able to answer many questions regarding our trip specifically and travel to Israel in general.
See you Sunday,

Ice Last Week; I Love My Church Day Rescheduled for This Sunday
Sunday was to be our annual I LOVE MY CHURCH DAY. Since the roads were problematic and kept most people from attending, our leadership has decided to officially celebrate I LOVE MY CHURCH DAY this coming Sunday, February 18. Much was planned to celebrate this wonderful day, and we do not want anyone to miss out. We will not let the weather dampen our celebration! So, let’s renew our commitment to invite guests from the past six months and notify the folks in your class or ministry. Don’t miss I LOVE MY CHURCH DAY 2018!
Make Up Financially from Last Week’s Icy Sunday
The financial impact of an ice Sunday on our ministries is extreme; therefore, if you missed this past Sunday, please be sure to make up financially. As I said this past Sunday, regardless if we are here or not and if giving is good or bad, the ministry of the church goes forward. Please do all you can to make up from missing the opportunity to bring your tithes and offerings to the Lord’s house.

How You Can Pray for America This Month
Our Communications Team made an infographic to help us focus our praying for America. These prayer priorities have helped my daily focus. Use it. Save it to your phone or add it to your prayer list. Each month, we will change out our prayer priorities for America. Join us in praying for America. You can the infographic below. (Click to enlarge.)
Night to Shine was a Huge Success
Once again, we were thrilled and blessed to host Night to Shine, an event sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation. This event is a Christ-centered prom night experience for people with special needs, and more than 540 churches across the world participate annually. This fits with our core values – People Need Each Other and People Change the World. Our 1,200 Dream Team members worked hard to make this night special for our 380 special needs guests and 500 of their family members. Thank you, Cross Church, for realizing the value of every individual and being willing to change the world through giving your resources, time, and love.
See you Sunday for I LOVE MY CHURCH DAY,
