From our Associate Pastor

Hey Crosspoint Bluewater!

I hope you had the opportunity to join us for one of our Easter Sunday services a couple of weeks ago! If you were here early enough, you could have partaken in some pancakes and sausages cooked up fresh in our parking lot! Or, maybe you enjoyed the incredible music with the accompanying light show as we joined voices in worship. No doubt, you were moved by Billy’s message on Jesus’ redemption of mankind. If you have kids, I’ll bet they had a great time in our kids’ ministry during the worship services. You may notice that every week, we get to experience a professional, inviting, safe, and excellent worship experience. I’d like to claim that the small staff at Crosspoint-BWB is responsible for all that excellence, but in reality, there’s a veritable army of volunteers who serve throughout the week to provide world-class worship and other events at our church. Without these volunteers, we couldn’t offer a fraction of the ministries we do.

Sunday (April 21), we’re going to take some time after the worship service and recognize the services our volunteers provide. If you volunteer at the church in any capacity, please join us after the 11:00 service so we can love on all of you!

Some of you may know that my last job in the Air Force was as the Vice Commander of the Air Force Recruiting Service, so I’m going to ask you to remember that WWII recruiting poster with Uncle Sam pointing at you, but instead of Uncle Sam, imagine it’s Billy saying, “Crosspoint BWB needs YOU to
volunteer!”

Seriously, we always need more volunteers to help out around the church. Each of us has been gifted by the Holy Spirit to serve a unique role in God’s mission- what is He calling you to do? Here’s a partial list of just some of the ways we could use your help to serve as a volunteer:

  • Hospitality (greeters, ushers, and café workers)—give newcomers (and regulars) a great first impression
  • Kids and Student ministries—guide our youngest as they start their journey of faith
  • Music Ministry
  • Creative Ministry (sound board, lighting, A/V production)
  • Helping during the week setting up and tearing down for worship and decorating for the season
  • Minor maintenance and repair work
  • Leading or co-leading Discover Crosspoint or Next Steps classes
  • Leading or co-leading a Financial Peace University class
  • Assistance with administrative tasks
  • Many more opportunities

None of these need any special skills (well, the Music Ministry may disagree)—we can train you up. We ask that you prayerfully consider offering some of your time as a volunteer. If you’re interested or have questions, grab one of the folks already volunteering and ask them what it’s like. Or talk to Billy or me, and we can help steer you.

Looking forward to seeing you Sunday!
