It’s People Like You That Make This World A Better Place

As many of you know, CrossPoint is in the middle of an incredible endeavor. We are just days away from our ONE BIG WORSHIP on November 18. A few days after that, we open THE POINT – God’s brand new, multi-million dollar recreation facility for Jefferson and St. Clair County.

PROJECT ONE is a tool God gave us to keep us focused on our passion and purpose during these groundbreaking days. PROJECT ONE includes three components—one fellowship, one mission, one commitment.

Today I want to share with you something that happened as a result of our ONE MISSION of PROJECT ONE.

Each Bible Study group at CrossPoint was asked to participate in one MISSION venture during the PROJECT ONE emphasis. Each small group developed some really creative projects.

The Open Door Class, led by Gerald Blankenship decided to take their mission project to the ICU Waiting Rooms at St. Vincent’s East Hospital. Their plan included stocking each room with a goody basket for those sitting and waiting. Just like the other classes mission efforts, this class helped Open Door to think outward.

On Tuesday we received a letter addressed to CrossPoint. The letter reads:

Dear Church:

I want to thank you for your thoughtfulness of placing snacks, pens and paper in the CICU waiting room of St. Vincent’s East Hospital. My mother was a patient there October 14th thru 17th in a life-threatening situation and I spent many hours in the waiting room. Your generosity was most appreciated by my family and other families as well.

May God continue to bless you as you minister to those in need. It’s people like you that make this world a better place.

Your friend in Christ,

Ruby Weaver
Oneonta, AL

CrossPoint you make me proud. This is nothing more than the personalization of JUST ONE MORE! Way to go Open Door. Way to go CrossPoint. Better yet, go Jesus!

    AWESOME! It’s always nice to know how your efforts to reach JUST ONE MORE has affected someone! That was an awesome job from the Open Door class and I look forward to hearing more testimonies of how this mission endeavour is reaching others. Also, from testimonies of other classes, I have a feeling that this is not something that we will have done ONLY during “The Fall of 2007″…I foresee Project ONE being a recurring role in our Bible Study groups….

    Ryan’s mom,
    You are so right. This is no longer an emphasis for the fall of 2007. Project One, or whatever else you want to call it, is becoming a part of CrossPoint’s origin. And that is good.
