Redeem the time ⏰

Ephesians 5:8, 15-17 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: 15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

It’s so easy to get sucked into old patterns and habits of the flesh. This is why, in the verses above, God is reminding us that we are children of light. We are His. He calls us to live like the children of light that we are, not foolishly seeking all this world has to offer. Instead, we are called to make the most of the time God has given us.

Jesus has redeemed us. Let's redeem the time we have been given!

Mark your calendar! 🗓

Exciting things are coming to Crosspoint! See below for several of these opportunities to serve and grow together. Be sure to save the dates and be a part.

Christmas Giving

Throughout this Christmas season, we are encouraging our church family to look for ways to invest in Gospel ministry. We have selected three opportunities that we are recommending this year.

Pray and ask God what He wants you to give.

Check out your church app for details.

December 7
Emmanuel Baptist Rescue Mission - 7:00 pm

On the first Thursday of each month, we get to go to skid row and serve at the rescue mission. We conduct a church service complete with worship songs and a Gospel message, and we assist their staff in serving a meal to those who attend that night. We would love for you to go with us!
