As Mike announced from the stage Sunday, we are cooking up an exciting opportunity with another portable church to team up with them for a joint worship service at 6:00 pm on Sunday, May 5.
We think God has an amazing night in store for us! That night, Connect Christian Church and The Crossing will join together for a massive worship experience in their building at Norlyn Manor (just outside Batavia at 4440 Ohio 132). That means we will have the opportunity to worship with a hybrid band made up of musicians from both churches as well as hear from both our senior pastor, Mike Edmisten, and theirs, Kenny White. Our kids will worship together in their own service, too. We can’t wait!
Both of our churches are in the middle of an incredibly exciting season, so what a perfect opportunity to celebrate together! For their church, May 5 marks their one-year anniversary of becoming The Crossing. For us, we will have just celebrated our first month as Connect at the hotel, but we’ll also be building toward our Official Launch the following Sunday on Mother’s Day, May 12. Between now and then, we’ll be doing all we can to be sure we are ready!
Make sure to get the evening of Sunday May 5 on your family’s calendar, as that is the only service we will have that week. 6pm at Norlyn Manor.
As we have said, portable doesn’t mean perfect, and we knew going into our lease with the Holiday Inn Eastgate that there would be a few Sunday mornings that we would not have access to our portable space. On those rare instances, we’ll either be having a Night of Worship at the hotel or we will get even more creative as we are with The Crossing.
And that’s the beauty of being portable.
To get one more date on your calendar, on Sunday, June 23, we will be having our service at the Batavia Township Park prior to welcoming hundreds of families to our fifth annual Sports Camp, which runs June 23-29. More details to come, but this is yet another huge opportunity to “Be the Church” in our community.
The staffs from both Connect and The Crossing are already hard at work planning an awesome event for May 5, so please be praying that God is glorified in a huge way through this event.
