This summer, we have been exploring a variety of "Hidden Figures" throughout scripture. We are looking at how God has used people to advance His kingdom and His purposes throughout history.
We are hearing from several people from within our CrossRoads family who will testify to God's faithfulness in their lives and how God has worked in and through them in unique, sometimes simple but powerful ways. Listen to Georgie's powerful story of how God used some hidden figures in her life:
Remember Bazalel & Oholiab? Who, you ask? Well if you're like most people, the names Bazalel & Oholiab aren't two that readily come to mind from Scripture. This Sunday, August 21, Pastor Jordan Cavanaugh will highlight these two hidden figures mentioned in Exodus 31:1-11. Join us Sunday to hear how God continues to use His people to write His glorious story!
As you come into the Sanctuary, you'll see the stage decorated with a variety of everyday common items, and you'll see that the cross is draped in green. These decorative decisions come out of our recognition that God works through ordinary things during ordinary times. (Green is a representation of "ordinary time" in the church calendar, which stretches between the Easter and Advent seasons).
We pray with you that God will enrich this season with powerful insight into how He is working through our lives, every day and in every moment.

What is Foundations?
Foundations is a course that is meant to help us build our lives on Him. This is a course for those of us who are Christians but who want to dig deeper into what it means and looks like to actually follow Jesus – to be His disciples. We want to learn how to think well about things so that we can live them out in a way that helps us represent God to the world around us. We will immerse ourselves in the things of God, recognizing that what we do flows out of what we believe.
What Can I Expect?
Over 8 classes, we will discover fundamentals of faith that fall under the 4 Priorities of CrossRoads Church from Isaiah 58. Each session is designed to explore a specific topic together through teaching and group discussion in a welcoming environment. Each week will end with an action point to encourage putting into practice the foundation we discussed. We anticipate you will begin to recognize that as you allow Jesus to form you, He will make you more like Him through the power of His Holy Spirit working in your life.
Foundations runs every Monday at 7pm in the chapel, from September 19 to November 7.

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of Him." - 1 John 5:14-15
