Okay, I will try not to ramble on about Crossroads’ first “Christmas Eve Eve” celebration last evening. However, it was a HOME RUN! The “collision”that happened over 2000 years ago, was once again honored in a most humbling experience. I would like to send a big shout out to all who attended and especially all who helped to make it a success (Christ glorifying, good singing, sound, lighting, new families…..)!

Special thanks to:

  • Kim for organizing everything from beginning to end (can’t wait to see you and Kirt put together for next year, literally)….as well as your usual stellar work with those vocal pipes that God gifted you with.
  • Mike and Brian for your delivering  and sharing your gift of song and guitar playing..
  • Russ, who found out  how much he misses greeting all who attend and visit any of our weekly experiences, by volunteering as a greeter last evening. Russ, you have found one of your many gifts and it shows.
  • Mersades, Baren and Brian for a beautiful rendition of “silent night”, you girls continue to wow us all including on Sunday mornings.
  • Randy and Karsen for making the audio/visual, lighting and the surprise snow machine bring that extra something that always makes the experience worshipful, yet completely different.
  • All of you readers and singers (chorus group) that delivered an amazing touch to the experience.
  • everyone who helped with setup and tear-down. We know that this is part of the Crossroads’ experience on a weekly basis. But all of you do it with joy and use it to build relationships with one another. Truly inspiring to see.
  • If I left anyone out, know that you were most appreciated as well.

Last night was one more experience that confirms, that what was started over 3 years ago with an over-whelming burden for reaching the spiritually lost in our community, is continuing to become a reality. God is allowing all of you (men, women, students and children) to help to spread “the Christ’s” light that we so celebrate during the Christmas season.

I wish each one of you at Crossroads Community Church a very blessed Christmas and am sooooo looking forward to what 2009 (okay, 2009 is an entirely different post for another day), anyway have a Merry Christmas!!
