let is snow, let it snow, let it snow

Sunday was a beautiful day, wasn’t it?  This was the view from my backporch.  Later in the day my daughter and her friends made this snowman.

I am so glad we went ahead with plans to meet for Bible Study and worship in the midst of a bad weather.  Although our crowds were down considerably, we still had wonderful worship.  Our policy at CrossPoint, very simply, is to meet for worship unless the roads freeze over and are impassable.

I realized we made the right decision when I met a guest who had driven more than an hour to worship with us.  Actually, he did not originally intend to worship with us.  The church he planned to visit was closed.  When passed by CrossPoint and saw the cars in our parking lot he headed our way.  After worship he informed me that he had been out of church for a long time.  He was convinced God brought him to CrossPoint.  Now that’s a good story.

Another good story comes from a CrossPointer who gave an extra tithe Sunday morning because he knew our offerings would be off from the inclement weather.  Next weekend we are preparing for a record offering to make up for the bad weather yesterday.  Some have already informed us that will be dropping their offering at the office this week or be including it in next weekend’s offering.

I thank the Lord for His faithfulness to us.  I thank Him also for the faithfulness of the people of CrossPoint.  Sunday was a beautiful day, indeed.

    It was a beautiful day, and I am so glad God protected all who traveled out in the snow. Yes, the crowd was slim, but I felt God’s presence there completely! Thanks Pastor Ryan for the wonderful message, I needed it!!

    Ryan, Sunday was indeed a beautiful day. Drove to church to attend the early service. My family was truely blessed in many ways. The song service great as usual. Thanks Brian. The message was timely as most of your messages are and the Bible study class though we were few in number was wonderful. The church facilities looked awesome with all the clean white snow all around.Thank you Lord for a wonderful day.
