Dear CrossPointe,

What a fantastic missions conference last weekend! (If you missed any of Dr. Murray's messages you can find them here.) This Sunday we will continue our missions theme as David Baum preaches from Matthew 16 about church-planting. Most of you know that David is planning a church-plant in the Columbus-area, and we at CrossPointe are excited to partner with him and his wife, Marie, in this endeavor.

Ultimately, we believe that churches do not exist for themselves but for the mission and glory of God. Likewise, we believe that the most effective way to grow the number of Christians in a city is through renewing existing churches and planting new ones. To that end, we want to give ourselves to the multiplication of gospel-centered churches in our area and pray that this church plant is the first of many.

Additionally, next Sunday evening, February 9, at 6:00 p.m., we will host an informational meeting for all those interested in hearing more details about David’s church-plant. Whether you are considering being a part of this plant, or just want to hear more about it so you can pray for and support it, I encourage you to come to this meeting!

Grace and peace,
