Mission Auction News

The Missions Auction will soon be here. In fact, it may be here sooner than ever before.

If you’ve never heard of the Missions Auction before, a little background. Each year, members and friends of Crosscreek donate homemade/handmade items (crafts, decorations, baked goods, etc.) and services (painting, yard work, etc.) that we then auction. The proceeds go to support the Missions Fund at Crosscreek as well as several of our missions partners.

Typically, the auction is held in early December and this year would fall on Sunday, December 7th. Because that time of the year has a very crowded calendar, the Missions Committee is considering moving the auction forward a few weeks to Sunday, November 16th.

We understand there isn’t a date that works for everyone, but we would like to hear your feedback. We would especially like to hear from folks who plan to make an item to be auctioned. Will you have time to get everything done by the earlier date? Let us know. You can email Brad at bradjeffcoat.

A Prayer Guide for Crosscreek Baptist Church Discipleship Committee
This prayer guide is designed to help the church join the newly formed Discipleship Committee in prayer as we seek ways to promote whole-life discipleship and stewardship of time, talents, and resources. We understand that when Jesus calls us to follow our lives begin to be transformed. The process of transformation takes many different paths, but the Discipleship Committee is committed to helping to highlight ways for everyone at Crosscreek to grow more deeply connected to Christ.

Each day this week, please follow this guide as we pray for our own spiritual formation and for the work of the Discipleship Committee.
Sunday
Pray that the committee would work with clarity and joy as they seek to promote the ways in which discipleship is already occurring at Crosscreek.
Monday
Pray for divine inspiration as the committee explores new ways to promote discipleship at Crosscreek.
Tuesday
Pray for those who are in leadership roles at Crosscreek – staff, Sunday School teachers, Wednesday night leaders, and volunteers – that they would be encouraged in the work they are doing.
Wednesday
Pray for your own engagement with discipleship. Pray that God would reveal clearly any new ways you are being asked to engage in following the way of Christ. How are you being called to grow more deeply into your faith?
Thursday
Pray for the next generation of leaders at Crosscreek. Pray that God would continue to raise up those who are being called to use their talents to participate more deeply and help lead us as we congregation ally follow God’s call.
Friday
Pray for the financial stewardship of Crosscreek. Pray that the Discipleship Committee would see clearly ways that God is asking them to help create a community of generosity. Pray that all of us would develop open hands, to live generously so that the love of God may be known by
all.
Saturday
Pray for peace and unity for Crosscreek. The more deeply we grow into God, the more at peace we become. The more deeply we grow into God, the more we realize how many things bind us all together. Pray that Crosscreek would be the type of community that is patterned by peace.

CROSSCREEK CHRISTMAS CHOIR NEEDS YOU!

You are invited to join the Christmas Choir as we begin preparing for this year’s Christmas cantata. We will rehearse on Sunday afternoons, beginning September 7, from 4-5 in the Choir Room. This is a wonderful opportunity to minister to our congregation through the gift of music–and not only to our congregation but to each other, as well. Christmas Choir is hard work but it is also a time of fellowship and fun!

On Sunday, September 7, we will have a Cantata Preview Party in the choir room. Come and enjoy listening to the music we will be working on. We might even preview a few Christmas snacks!

· If you have been watching your Facebook, or have looked at the Crosscreek Facebook page, you now know that tonight’s Market will the the last for the season. Some of our vendors cannot participate next week so the decision was made to let this be our last Market for the year. You’ll want to come out and gather up some of your favorite goodies! This was a wonderful outreach and we should all be so happy that we have young people willing to reach out and try a new approach in an old location. Thanks to everyone who has participated!!
