Last Sunday, we heard from Jason Mitchell with Vigilant Hope, which is a ministry in Wilmington focused on meeting the needs of the poor in our city as a platform to point them to Jesus. As a church, we will spend oneSaturday a month serving downtown with Vigilant Hope. This Saturday, October 21st, we will be serving from 9:30 - 11:00 AM. The address is 1626 Lake Branch Drive (28401). You can bring your whole family, and this particular Saturday, we will mostly be spending time talking to and trying to relationally connect with those there getting a meal and listening to the message. In future months, we will likely have more involvement with the meal preparation and other areas of service, but this Saturday will allow us a chance to get familiar with how things work on Saturdays at Vigilant Hope.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.com

There has been a lot of damage due to Hurricane Matthew in our surrounding areas. It is our desire to move towards One Life Camp, with servants hearts, and meet whatever needs we can. We would love to make this a Youth Group gathering while opening it up to the entire church body. This could be a great opportunity for Life Groups to get involved or anyone that feels led to be a part of this missional opportunity. There is a large array of work to be done, primarily some tree removal, and limb and debris relocation. This is a family friendly event, as there is a large range of work to be done, plenty of small limbs for the little ones! Contact Hunter Hopkins with any questions! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
