HANDLING STRESS NEW MIDWEEK CLASS

Our next Midweek Class begins this Wednesday night at 6:15pm. Handling Stress is a study that helps us find God’s peace regardless of our current life situation. This class will dig into God’s Word, helping us see the difference between helpful and harmful stress. It will be taught by Sonya Jones and Barbara Long.

MARCH TO THE CROSS

CrossWay Family, we are extending our March to the Cross Missions Offering until May 5th. This year’s offering will go toward providing missions scholarships.

CONNECTION POINT – APRIL

Our next Connection Point is Sunday, April 28th at 9am. If you are a visitor, interested in membership, or learning more about CrossWay, please join us for Connection Point on Sunday, April 28th from 9am – 10am in our Prayer Room. This is during our Connect Group hour, so there will be classes and nursery care, as needed. To reserve your spot, please contact the church office.

SUMMER CONNECT 4’S

Summer is a great time for fellowship! Connect 4 Groups are assigned groups of 4 singles, couples, or families who will meet three times during the summer months. Each group will decide where and when to meet. Sign up’s will begin this Sunday and continue through May 12th. You may sign up on our web site, on the inserts that are included in your Connect Group roll folders, or using an insert from one of the tables in the back of the Sanctuary.

TLC PRAYER PARTNERS


In Titus 2, older ladies are instructed to invest in the lives of younger ladies. TLC prayer partners will provide that opportunity. TLC, The Ladies CrossWay, will pair two ladies of different ages to pray for each other for a period of six months. The idea is simply to encourage and pray for each other. It will be up to individual pairs if they want to expand the relationship. Please see the insert in this week’s bulletin for more information. 

SUMMER CAMP SCHOLARSHIP FUND

CAMP IS LIFE-CHANGING!  Although our Kids and Youth will host a few fundraisers to help offset its cost, Summer Camp can still be difficult for many families to afford.  Especially those with multiple kids.  To help bridge the gap for families who need additional assistance after the fundraisers are completed, we are establishing a NexGen Camp Scholarship Fund.  If you would like to donate towards this fund to ensure that no kid misses camp because of financial reasons, you may submit your gift by cash or check.  Simply designate that the gift is for the Camp Scholarship Fund.  The cost of Kids Camp is $185 while the cost of Youth Camp is $317.  

PARENT SUMMIT – PARENTING WITH PURPOSE

God has placed your children in your life for a specific purpose and God has called you, as a parent, to a specific task. Join us for our Parent Summit as we learn from Scripture what God expects from parents and how He equips us to accomplish this task. This summit will be a great resource to any parent(s) who have children birth through elementary age. The summit is May 4th from 4:00pm–7:30pm. The cost is $10/person, which covers dinner and conference materials. For more information or to register, please visit CrossWayFamily.org/ParentSummit.

WOMEN’S MINISTRY PJ MOVIE NIGHT

CrossWay Ladies, please join us on Tuesday, May 14th, for our Pajama Movie Night! Wear your Pajamas and bring a snack to share. We will begin at 6pm. Bring your friends!

DivorceCare: FIND HELP AND HEALING AMID DIVORCE

Most people will tell you that separation and divorce are among one of, if not the absolute, most painful and stressful experiences of their lives. It is a chaotic time that feels isolating, breeding questions about issues you have never faced before. DivorceCare is made up of a group of friendly, caring people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. There is no need to go through it alone. Our seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You will learn how to heal from the wounds of divorce and discover hope for your future.

DivorceCare will be held at CrossWay on Sunday nights at 5:30pm, beginning with orientation on April 7th. DivorceCare will not be held on Easter Sunday. Childcare is not available. Please contact Terry & Pauline Brower at 615-692-2827 with questions. The cost for the class is $20 for books, due at the first class.
