Dear Church Family,
This past Spring Break, the churches of the CrossNet Baptist Network banned together for a mission trip to Washington, DC and God moved in powerful ways. Mission Team Members from Bellefounte, FBC Cleveland, FBC Georgetown, Mt. Carmel, Washington Ave. and Waterville participated. Mission Projects included hosting an Easter outreach, evangelism with Ethiopians, serving at a homeless soup kitchen, placing 9,000 Easter door hangers and more! Please continue praying for our DC partnership.
Our disaster relief teams have transitioned to send relief to Puerto Rico. Approximately $25,000 has been used to aid the recovery efforts in Puerto Rico through our mission teams that have been deployed. We have had 10 deployments from November – April mobilizing 120 Volunteers. We have two scheduled trips coming up and more to come (see below). Call CrossNet at 423-476-5493 if you are interested in participating.
Trip 11: April 21-27, team of 15 led by Al Miller (Meadowview)
Trip 12: May 12-18, team of 12-14 led by Clint Davis (Eastanallee) -- OPEN SPOTS
On Monday May14th from 9:30am to 2:00pm, we will be hosting a Prayer Boot Camp with Claude King at the CrossNet Baptist Network office. God is calling His people to prayer, and God’s people are responding with a hunger to learn to pray more effectively and strategically. Prayer Boot Camp is a flexible prayer training experience to provide basic training in prayer and to introduce the weapons of our spiritual warfare. It is not just learning about prayer. It is learning to pray by praying together. The content is based on The Battle Plan for Prayer by Stephen and Alex Kendrick, developers of “War Room.” Please RSVP by 423-476-5493.
We are continuing our CrossNet 3e series – Equip, Engage, Expand with a special conference called “How to Make Disciples Rather Than Casual Christians.” This general leadership, Sunday School and small group discipleship Conference will be held May 15 at 6:30pm at Westwood Baptist. There will be two sessions to choose from - Part 1 will be a repeat of the January Session and Part 2 is brand new.
