Dear Cross Creek,
As difficult as this hurricane week has been, it has also been a joy to see and experience the family of God being a family together. Before, during, and after the storm, you've prayed for one another, checked in on each other, and helped one another with practical needs. My prayer is that God would continue to nurture us as A Church For St Johns, moving toward each other and our neighbors with the love of Jesus Christ in both word and deed.
If you have anything that you need help with, please let us know. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (904) 338-4582. You can also keep up with MNA Disaster Site Updates for both Harvey and Irma here.
We are back on for Worship Service, Classes, and Bible Studies. The Women's Bible Study starts this week, with three weekly sessions to choose from: Sunday at 9:30am (mini version, starting 9/17), and Tuesdays at 9:30am and 7pm (starting 9/19). Childcare is available for morning sessions. The GOSPEL LOVE study will help you examine your relationships and learn how the gospel of Jesus Christ frees you to love others. Topics covered include barriers to loving others, how love is an expression of faith, the role of the Spirit in relationships, honesty vs. judging, and how to live with forgiveness and compassion.
Grace and peace,
