Cross Connect- Sunday August 22nd, 5pm: Pastoral Internship
(Potluck to follow)
We are trying something new! Cross Connect is a way for the entire Cross Church family to respond and move forward with what God is doing at different seasons and moments outside of our annual Church Celebration and vision meetings.
This Cross Connect is a time to present and approve an amendment to our budget. We will need to add and fund Pastoral Internship for the remainder of the 2021 budget.
The Church has been called to identify, set apart, and commission workers for the gospel. The elders are excited to present Robert Clarke to serve the Cross Church as a Pastoral Intern.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about the Pastoral Internship, meet Robert and vote to make room in our budget for what God is doing.
Grab a copy of the Pastoral Internship document located in the foyer for more information.

We are moving forward and planning to fill the playground space with some much needed playground, courtyard and family equipment. If you would like to be part of the team that designs, discusses and proposes which elements will go into the future space, please connect with Pastor Joel. The team will begin meeting in September.
Taiwan Mission Trip Update
Recently, The Cross Church announced that we are being led to explore Taiwan as a permanent focus for our on the ground mission work. We are currently waiting for travel restrictions to normalize and become more predictable. Please be praying for God to open a way to send a scouting team this year to begin planning for 2022.
