Merry Christmas week to everyone! As you spend time with friends and family this week, we ask that you continue to remember the church in your personal prayer time. This is a time of celebration for who Christ is as our Savior, and we pray that you find plentiful opportunities for rest and remembrance on the mission that God went on 2,000 years ago to bring us back to Him.

Praise God for His Work

  • We have officially registered with the IRS and have opened a bank account. We are working on creating a place to give/tithe online at CrossCurrent.Church.
  • We have communicated with the Alamance County School System and are in conversation regarding the use of one of the schools as our first location. We have had our first real meeting with them and we are pursuing a very viable location in one of the Burlington schools.

Prayer Needs

  • Continue to pray over locations for the church. We may be able to use a school for our starting location, but we also want to remain faithful to God's authority and leadership, and do not want to ignore other possibilities.
  • Continue to pray for Harvest Baptist Church. We want to show our love for them through our prayers.
  • Ed Moschler is in continued need of prayer this week for his eye. He received a good report from his doctor last week, but still has limits on what he can do.
  • Support prayers for our missionaries: Cassidy Hursey (NY), David & Kristi Mize (MI), Jesse Hursey (NC), and Lance Brown (National).

CC.C Pillar: (Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-38; 2:1-20) At CC.C we believe that Christ is not only fully God, but that He took on the form of man and was born to Mary and Joseph. We believe in the full account, that Mary was still a virgin upon His conception and birth, that the angel Gabriel really came and announced His birth to Mary and Joseph, that the angels came and proclaimed His birth to the shepherds, and that He was born in a lowly stable in Bethlehem.

Feedback

  • Let us know of your favorite Contemporary Christian Christmas song!
  • Continue to inform us of any locations you might find or already know of (lobby, auditorium, space for children care, easy access/parking, cheap, etc.). Though we are progressing towards a school option, we want to continue exploring any options we might have.
  • Continue to email us with your prayer requests, both private (only seen by leadership) and public (which can be included in future newsletters).
  • Contact us with any people you think would want to join this church, even if they are just interested in getting our newsletter. ALSO, there is now a way to sign up for the newsletter directly from our website www.CrossCurrent.Church. The website is still under construction but there should be a box to sign up to the newsletter. If there is any difficulty you can contact us through email at news@crosscurrent.church.

We all long for Eden, and we are constantly glimpsing it: our whole nature at its best and least corrupted, its gentlest and most human, is still soaked with the sense of exile. -J.R.R. Tolkien

Devotional

As usual, we have included a devotional in the original email. These serve to further strengthen the body in their knowledge of God, His Word, and His church. We ask that you take the time to prayerfully read and meditate on this short message as we continue to walk together in unity of Spirit.
