December 11th, 2016
Save the Date!
2017 is approaching fast and I am confident this will be a watershed year in the life of our Church. God is at work amongst us and I am looking forward to how the Lord will continue to lead and provide for us.
One of the important tasks we are planning is to ensure every Leader at Crossway North participates in an ‘Orientation’ Workshop; and that every Leader is recognised and prayed for at our Launch Sunday Service.
We will conduct our ‘Leader’s Orientation’ on two separate occasions giving Leaders the choice of which one suits them best to attend:
- Friday night, Feb 10th (7:30pm-9:00pm) or
- Saturday, Feb 11th (10:00am-11:30am)
Our ‘Launch’ Sunday will be Feb 12th
Please pray about next year – it’s going to be great.
God Bless, Brett ______________________________________________________________
