September 14 at 6pm CrossPointe FWB Church organized. About 80 people signed up to become charter members. The church is no longer under Home Missions in Nashville. This means a few things.
1. CrossPointe will no longer receive financial support from the domination
2. The church formed it’s membership and elected a pastor
3. The church is self-supporting
We ended the service in a time of prayer and dedication. This begins a new chapter at CrossPointe Church. We’re excited and nervous at the same time. None of this would be possible without the support and prayers of hundreds of churches and thousands of people like you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! Your partnership in this planting endeavor means the world to us. We appreciate the opportunity and privilege of being your missionaries to Suffolk, VA.
A few days ago we wrote our last CrossPointe newsletter to be mailed out next month. It’s so hard to believe what has taken place these last 7 years. It’s bittersweet writing you this last blog update concerning CrossPointe. It’s sad because we’ll miss these awesome people. It’s exciting because we’re on the verge of planting again. Look for more info coming soon about Project Portsmouth.
