From our Campus Pastor, Jeff Burnett
I’m so grateful that we not only serve the most powerful, awe-inspiring being in the universe, but that despite his power, God also has a special place in his heart for children; especially those who are poor, oppressed, and marginalized. Throughout scripture God gives special instructions to assist orphans, widows, and foreigners. With this in mind, we at Crosspoint take at least one Sunday each year to consider what we can do to assist the vulnerable children in our community, and around the world. We refer to that Sunday as “Orphan Advocacy Sunday”, and this year we’ll be sponsoring that day on May 22.
That morning we’ll talk about three different ways you can get involved including:
- Embrace Florida Kids will be on campus on May 22.
- The Niceville campus will host a NO MORE Orphans Experience from 6:00 p.m. that evening.
- The following Sunday (May 29) we will have a representative from the Families First Network in the lobby after each service to answer any questions you may have about being a Foster parent.
Sunday, May 29 will also be “Promotion Sunday” for Crosspoint Kids and Crosspoint Students. On that day our database will promote all of our children to their next grade level which means they may be promoted to a new Small Group. Rising Kindergartners will begin meeting in Hangar 1 at both 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. services. Rising 5th graders will graduate from Hanger 2 at the 9:30 a.m. service, but are encouraged to attend our Preteen Group that meets in Hangar 2 during the 11:00 a.m. service. Rising 6th graders will graduate from the Preteen Group and are invited to begin attending Student Ministry on Sunday evenings from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. There will be several changes happening all around, so please allow a little more time for check-in that morning. If you have any questions leading up to Promotion Sunday, please contact our Kids Minister, Casi, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for being a congregation that mirrors the heart of God by valuing and supporting our children!
