Hello, Crossroads Family!
A quick reminder as you head toward the end of the week:
Worship this Sunday morning at 10:00 at the Community Center. We’ll have a great and refreshing time reconnecting with God and with each other!
The sermon will be “Questions About Marriage,” from Matthew 19:1-12. It’s part of the series of topics we’re addressing from the Pastor Search tool our Crossroads elders recently went through together. One of the questions in that tool is “What is your church’s position on divorce and remarriage?” We’ll take a look at divorce and remarriage in a couple weeks; this Sunday we’ll start by simply answering some basic (yet important and sometimes difficult) questions about marriage. Some of the questions we’ll try to answer are…
- What constitutes marriage in the sight of God?
- Why is permanence in marriage important?
- Why, as a Christian, should I marry another Christian?
- How to get married?
- What does (will) my marriage partner need?
- What if I’m not married?
I’m looking forward to it! And, on Graduation Sunday from Nevada High School, I think it’s a totally appropriate topic for graduating seniors. Some of them will be dealing with these questions sooner than they realize! I hope to see you there! The sermon will be posted on the Crossroads FB page this weekend.
