WIN

I have a corny confession to make. I get motivated by silly little slogans. Every year I have a different slogan for my year. These slogans motivate me to eat right, exercise, spend time in the Word, and accomplish the goals I have set out for myself. This year’s slogan is “What’s Important Now.” I […]

New Year’s Resolutions, Goals, or Plans?

Hey Friends, 2019 is right around the corner.  In fact it is less than twelve hours away!  Many people make New Year’s Resolutions and others despise making resolutions.  The problem with resolutions is that our “resolve” tends to run out early in the New Year.   Some people choose to make goals instead of resolutions.  […]

Risen Indeed

Risen Indeed! Dear Friends, Easter is coming on April Fools Day and that is no joke!

Verse by Verse

We recently finished our verse by verse study of the Book of Ephesians.  In two weeks we will begin another verse by verse series in Malachi.  I recently had an opportunity to teach some “future preachers” about preaching and several wondered why I take that approach as opposed to topical preaching.  Here are some benefits […]

Easter: The Super Bowl for the Church!

The New England Patriots are one of my favorite NFL teams (after Cleveland and Seattle).  Super Bowl 51 was one of the greatest games ever played and certainly the greatest comeback in any Super Bowl.  The Super Bowl is a huge day every year for the NFL, advertisers, and sport’s fans in general.  It is […]

Hey friends, This Sunday we are going to recognize all of our Adult Life Group leaders and give them $100 each to help them do an outreach or service event.  We want CrossPointe to be a church OF small groups and not just a church WITH small groups.  Life Groups are vital to your spiritual growth […]
