Jesus, temptation, and rest 🙏🙌

Hey, Crosspoint family!

This Sunday will be the last day of our 21 days of prayer and fasting! Way to go, church!! After an experience like this, it usually comes with mixed emotions. You’re excited to eat yummy things or get something back - that “thing” you’ve missed, like social media or TV - but more than anything you long to stay close to God.

Here’s a word of wisdom, especially if you’ve never done this before. Coming to the end of a fast and out of a fast, Satan is going to try to tempt you to mess up. He tried it on Jesus, so don’t think he won’t try it on you. Jesus used the Word to defeat him, and we can do the same.

“And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:3-4

We’re so ready to worship Jesus together as we lift up the Name that is above every name! 🙌 This Sunday’s weather is going to be a little chilly so we’ll be inside. BIG NEWS! They installed a germicidal, ultraviolet air purifier for the sanctuary to enhance the protective measures we already are taking.🎉

Wednesday...



Need God’s help with your finances? Growth Groups for the next three Wednesdays are all on Zoom. This week, we pick up with the second lesson in a series on Faith and Finances. We have the privilege of having a pro in this subject teach us.  Tim Rosen heads up Faith and Finances Ministry and provides Christ-focused financial teaching and instruction. The best part is that he doesn’t just teach it. He lives out. Join us each Wednesday on Zoom at 7:00 pm.

Love and Share
Help your friends and family see what God is doing here at Crosspoint! Love and share our social media posts. As others see how excited you are about what God is doing here, they might just show up and start walking with Jesus too!

(Be the first to let us know that you loved and shared this Facebook post, and we will send you a Starbucks gift card!)

Important stuff 😉:

  • Who are you going to bless this week? Reach out to one another via text, call, or FaceTime, and get together with an individual to share Christ’s love (Christian or non-Christian).  😊  Satan would love to divide people during this time. Be careful to be looking out for others and sharing Jesus with people who don’t know Him.
  • Let us know if you or someone you know has a need.🙏
  • Let’s remember to give financially through our tithes and offerings so the work of the church can continue. You can give online @ crosspoint.la or through the app. If you would prefer to text your monetary gift, simply text GIVE to (424) 343-2378. You can also mail checks to:


Crosspoint Baptist Church
