Sunday was an incredible day packed with blessings at Crossroad. Thinking about this blog, I realize that I haven’t been updating you on our ministry at church very often. This week I’m prompted to do just that as Sunday was just too good not to share!
Crossroad happily welcomed a new family into its membership. This couple, with their 6 children (including a set of triplets), began attending CBC during the summer of last year. It’s been a joy to see their faithfulness, friendship, and thirst for a knowledge of God. Three of their children placed their faith in Christ this past January, and then two more trusted Christ a few weeks ago after Children’s Church. As I look back over our time at Crossroad, they are the first members we’ve had join since Stephen and I came to Arizona. It’s so encouraging to see concrete steps of growth.
Sunday, we also held a baptismal service in which the Horkavys’ son and the five other children were baptized. I think our church has one of the most beautiful baptismal pools. (Thanks to a family in our church who let us use their outdoor jacuzzi.)
How exciting to see six little ones profess their faith in Christ before a body of believers. I know Pastor Ryan counted it a special privilege to be able to baptize his own son.
With the addition of this family, we now have 8 families in our membership along with 3 other families that are regular attenders. We’ve also enjoyed several first-time visitors and repeat visitors this year. Our typical attendance on Sunday mornings is around 30 people. Thank you to those who regularly pray for the ministry at Crossroad. Please come visit us if you’re ever in Phoenix!
