Rockin’ CrossPoint Choir
Join the Rockin’ CrossPoint Choir @ Colonial Park!
“The Holy Thursday musical was inspiring, creative, and fun! The best yet!”
“AWESOME! JOYFUL! BELIEVERS!”
“Great anthem – praise God for our choir!”
“I don’t know what you were going for… but this was a home-run!”
“The choir leading worship takes us to the next level.”
These are just a few of the comments from our community about the CrossPoint
Choir. The Spirit is moving and taking us right along with it! If you have ever
sung before, in school, church, your car or the shower, we want you to come along with us.
The CrossPoint Choir is a dynamic, multi-generational ensemble that
leads worship and prepares CrossPoint Church for encounters with
God. Through gospel, contemporary, and sacred music we strive to be
continually pointing towards Heaven and proclaiming God’s glory.
Come find out what all the noise is about!

On June 28th, the Central Pennsylvania Blood Bank came to the Perking Point and collected 9 pints of blood. That may not seem like a lot, but to the 9-36 people who benefited from them, it was literally a life-saver. Over the summer, blood is in short supply. Regular donors are on vacation, and accidents are on the rise with nicer weather. We need your help. On Saturday, August 30th from 9:00 a.m. -12:00 noon you have the opportunity to give. It doesn’t cost you anything and whether it’s your first time or your 50th, just showing up is an act of love. Walk-in or schedule your appointment online at www.cpbb.org. It takes about an hour, but it can change someone’s life forever!
A funny thing happens every time I go to the Perking Point these days. Usually within about 30 seconds of walking through the door, I’m already engaged in a conversation. It could be something that happened in church on Sunday, or a question about a scripture passage someone read, or maybe it’s an update on a prayer request someone gave me. Whatever it is, I’ve learned that the Perking Point is a place where people go to talk about God.
So this Fall, I would like to continue the conversation. Starting Tuesday, September 2nd @ 7:00 pm, we will be hosting a series of four Coffeehouse Conversations. Participants should come with questions about God, scripture, prayer, life in general…whatever is on your heart. We will gather them up and start to work through them one conversation at a time. This is an experiment and could develop into a larger/longer conversation or may develop into a regular LifeGroup meeting. For now, I’m looking forward to what may come. If you would like to join us or have any questions, please contact Pastor Jason at 717-418-1292 or email@example.com for more details.
All 4th and 5th graders are invited to join Majesty Chimers. They meet Wednesday evenings, 6:00-6:30 p.m. @ Colonial Park in Room 208 and play during church 3-4 times during the school year. First rehearsal will be Wednesday, September 3rd. If you have any questions, contact Brenda Pulaski at firstname.lastname@example.org or 564-1850.
STEAK-OUT!!!! SEPTEMBER 14, 2014
Attention LifeGroup Leaders, Mission Leaders, Ministry Leaders! Last year’s event met the goals of connecting people and informing people. Let’s do it again! Have a display and representatives ready to go for the mall time of Steak Out. This is a time for people to plug into areas in the church, whether looking for LifeGroups or ministries or missions, make your display inviting and informational. Be sure that your information is to Helen Patrick by September 1: Include the following information: Name of Group, contact information, descriptive sentence or two, meeting information. It is imperative that this information gets in on time, so that your group can be included in floor planning. There will be no guarantee of inclusion in the event for last-minute requests.

LIVE DEBT FREE: FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY IS COMING…
What would happen if the people of God started handling money in God’s way? Financial Peace answers this question and so much more. FPU is about a return to God’s way of handling money but in a practical, step by step, game plan showing you exactly how to do it. This is a 9-week video program on how to:
Pay off debt
Save for the future
Give like never before.
You are literally going to be doing things every week differently than you ever have based on biblical principles. The average family who attends the class pays off $5,300 in debt and saves $2,700 in the first 90 days. FPU is about learning how to control your money. Couples learn how to talk to each other about money and get on the same page; the correlating effect is that the marriage grows stronger.
The class is $95 per single/couple and that includes all registration materials; scholarships are available, just speak with Pastor Jen. Child care will be provided. Class Preview will be offered on September 17. Class begins on September 24 at 6:30 p.m. and runs for 9 consecutive Wednesday evenings. To register for the class, please email Pastor Jen at email@example.com.
