2016 1/4 Newsletter

Weekly Schedule

CrossBridge STL is happy to announce beginning this Sunday, 1/10/16, we will meeting weekly @ the Arnold Recreation Center. We have begun the next phase of building CBCC, and are thankful for the friendly cooperation of the Arnold Rec Center staff.

A typical Sunday morning schedule will be something like below.

9:30 – 10:00am Setup/Prayer Time – We have some specific needs. Developing these areas will be a work in progress.

  • Setup/Teardown Crew Needed: Worship Pastor James will direct an efficient crew in loading in and setting up all equipment.
  • Prayer Cover: We need a dedicated group of individuals willing to spend time in prayer before each service, for heart preparation, spiritual growth, protection, and benefit of all who will attend.
  • Greeters: We need folks that love to meet people and talk about what God has called us to do through CrossBridge Community Church. This team will be the first contact many will have with CBCC.
  • Child Workers: We need a trustworthy, secure team committed to caring for the safety and spiritual well-being of CrossBridge Kidz (Pastor Keith shot down my label of “Cross Kids”…). Families need to know their children are safe, cared for, and being taught truth in love. Greeters will likely connect families with children to Child Workers.

10:00am – 11:30am CrossBridge STL Weekly Services¬†–¬†Worship. Life-giving Word of God. Connection to Community.

11:30am – 12:00pm Fellowship/Teardown – All are invited to spend some time getting to know each other, connect with new people, and strengthen the bonds that form when we share life in Christ together. During this time, the worship team and any other Setup/Teardown/Tech Crew members will break down and pack away equipment using standardized methods that James will teach.

12:00pm Depart from the room/Fellowship Continues – You don’t have to leave the premises, just the room in order to respect the facility time slot we’re allotted. Mingle in the plentiful common areas, play some games, go for a swim, or chat over lunch at one of the nearby restaurants. [Bandana’s Bar-B-Q is a favorite. They want you to “Smell that Smoke”! I suggest doing it at lunch, not the afterlife!]

Forthcoming Small Group(s)

On either a Tuesday or Wednesday, on an undetermined date, the first Small Group series will convene with Pastor Keith teaching on church membership. This meeting will rotate through homes 3x/month. Check back for more information.

Worship Team

Worship Pastor James is organizing a small worship team. Once established, the lineup will rotate on a 2 week cycle. There may be an ocassional substitute leader until James’ prior leadership duties are fulfilled.

Prayer Warriors

A Prayer Warrior leader is needed, along with a team to regularly go on the offensive against the enemy, Satan, and his forces. The enemy will do all they can to wreck CrossBridge Community Church and its people. Instead, let us being a dangerous foothold situation, secure in the stronghold of Jesus Christ, behind the enemy lines. Let us cover CrossBridge Community Church in prayer! Let us put on the full armor of God so that we may lead people to the cross, and bridge them into the community of Christ.

In Christ,
James A. Miller
Worship Pastor
CrossBridge Community Church
