Dear Family,

Thank you for welcoming so many of our guests on Easter Sunday. Your hospitality and kindness did not go unnoticed. Also, a special thank you to those who served in children's ministry in one service while attending the other. It's those kinds of gracious sacrifices that will often lead to churches growing and thriving. It's amazing what simply loving people will do. Thanks also to our music team and sound/visual crew for doing double duty. We had well over three hundred people worship between the two Easter services. More than anything, we pray that the Lord was honored and glorified. Praise the risen Savior!

Please remember that education classes will commence this Sunday at 9:30 am. I would like to encourage all of you to be engaged with this learning opportunity. It's so good for us to study the Word together.

One of the core ministries at Cross Creek is life groups. We believe it is important to establish relationships with others in the church in small group settings. If you are not in a life group, please consider joining one. If you have any questions about this ministry or would like some suggestions on which group to join, please contact Keith Snow.

Have you been actively involved in our Greater Things campaign? You may or may not know that the beautiful facility we enjoy so much has an existing debt of roughly $600,000. God has faithfully provided for the payment of our facility over the last six years, and though much has been accomplished there is much yet to do. Our desire is that we all share in meeting this commitment through generous giving. If you have been involved in this campaign, we invite you to continue your giving commitment as information on a new campaign is forthcoming very soon. If you would like further information, please contact Debbie Koerner in the church office and she can direct you to the right people.

Keith Snow will be preaching this Sunday and we will faithfully observe the sacrament of the Lord's Supper. Please prepare yourself by reading 1 Corinthians 11, devoting time to prayer, and seeking Gospel reconciliation with others.

See you this Sunday!

Paul
