Dear CrossPointe,

This Sunday we’ll take a break from Romans 8 to hear from David Baum about the upcoming church plant. David has been part of our team for the past year or so and has been preparing and gathering a core group from CrossPointe to launch another Christ-centered, Bible-believing, gospel-cherishing, mission-oriented church in our city.

David has preached several times at CrossPointe and if you’ve heard him speak in the pulpit or in person, you know he drips with passion for the gospel, the church, and people. Lord willing, sometime in 2015, Fountain City Church will be launched. As that date draws nearer, I ask that you begin to pray specifically for David and his wife, Marie, and Fountain City Church.

Here are some ways you can pray specifically for Fountain City Church (FCC):

  • More people to join the FCC plant team
  • Wisdom and provision about an initial location and meeting space
  • The continued assembling and direction of the worship/music team
  • Evangelistic opportunities for the FCC team
  • Wisdom for the administrative elements of planting a new church
  • Financial provision for start-up costs and equipment
  • God’s blessing and wisdom on forming a multi-ethnic congregation
  • God’s continued blessing of a great relationship between FCC and CrossPointe.

Finally, as you pray, I encourage you to consider whether the Lord may be calling you to be part of the FCC plant team. If you are interested in hearing more about FCC or are considering being part of the plant team, please e-mail David. He’d love to share his heart and vision with you!

Looking forward to this Sunday!
