Pastor Raphael preaching this Sunday!
What a joy it was to host our dear friends, Gareth & Keri Franks, from the United Arab Emirates (via South Africa and India!) last week. The Lord has been so gracious to make us partners in the gospel with like-minded churches and families around the world. If you missed Gareth’s message last week on the “Useless Church” from Revelation 3:14–22, take some time to listen to it here. It was a poignant, convicting, and needed word for the church.
This Sunday we again have the great privilege to host one of our dear brother pastors from abroad. Pastor Raphael Kajjubi from Uganda will be with us again and will share from God’s word. If you’ve been around CrossPointe for a while, you already know what a wonderful joy it is to hear from Raphael. If you’ve never heard him, you will be blessed, encouraged, and exhorted!
Finally, next Sunday, May 20, we will get back into Romans 8 and look at the massively encouraging final paragraph of that great chapter.
I’m looking forward to gathering with you this Sunday!
Grace and peace,
