Fall always provides us time to recalibrate as we head into the latter part of the year. On September 23rd we will have a Life Group kickoff where each LG leader (including some new groups) will provide their meeting times and details, which is intended to provide everyone a chance to sign up for a group, or connect with the Life Group leaders. Donuts and coffee will be provided!
Join us for our monthly prayer meeting. As a church, we are eager to accomplish great things for God's Kingdom - but we cannot do that without his power and grace. Let us seek His strength together. There will be childcare for this event! We hope to see you there!

Freedom is found through a relationship with Jesus Christ
Breaking free from addiction takes a lot of support. Whatever you’re struggling with - alcohol, drugs, purity, eating disorders, guilt, etc - there is life and assurance of a new identity in Christ. Our hope is that all who come, whether in the midst of a life dominating sin or with a heart to love others who are struggling, will find new life in Christ and learn to share their story of healing with others. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
You are invited to CONNECT (formerly known as "Get Acquainted", a gathering intended for anyone who is newer to Crossway -- if you aren't a member of Crossway and/or you haven't been to a "Get Acquainted" gathering then this is for you!

This Sunday we are continuing our Christmas series titled "Songs of the Season" where we are preaching through the content of some the most well known Christmas songs. Our desire is to see each of these songs move beyond sentimental to engage our hearts in worship during the month of December!
We are so excited to celebrate the Christmas season with the Youth Group! Dress up or down in the most Christmas-y outfit you can put together (ugly sweaters, onesie pajamas, santa suits, etc). We will do a “Gift Exchange,” in which you will bring anything random from home that you no longer wish to keep - no spending money! Wrap it up and bring it with you! We’ll also have Christmas cookie time and watch the movie Elf. Everyone grades 6-12 is welcome, invite your friends!
Let us know if you can come, and if you need a ride! (Rachel:281-799-4672)

Come and learn about health & wellness from our brother, Brian Geer: My heart behind the wellness class is to assist God's People in learning how to care for themselves. I have learned a lot through my personal experience with illness, as well as reading about nutrition as a hobby, pursuing exercise science for my college degree, and working in the medical field. I want to share what I have learned with those who are interested in learning how live healthier lives. The goal is to glorify God through how we care for ourselves, and to have the energy to do the tasks that He has called us to.
If you're interested, please contact Brian directly at email@example.com
As a church, we are taking intentional steps to be involved in ministering to those who have been affected by the Opioid Epidemic in our city.
As part of this initiative, we are asking anyone and everyone from Crossway to attend a public forum at Port City Community Church on September 18th, 6-9PM, to promote awareness, education, and prevention.
At the very least, this forum will provide you more context about this epidemic so you can pray more specifically about the way God's people are getting involved. Visit www.mvmtilm.com for additional details.
The theme of the retreat this year is "WORK in Progress". We will have three sessions studying the book of Philippians, which will include time to discuss and apply these truths to our lives as men.
The agenda for the weekend and additional logistics will be provided by September 10th. In the interim if you have questions please contact Matt Moorehead at 910-465-0264 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forward to the time!
