We continue to hear more stories of how God is at work in the Crossroads District team. Here are a few more of those stories to share as we encourage one another and praise the Lord for answered prayers!
Pastor Tony Bye and the team at Brookhaven Wesleyan Church in Marion started off Holy Week with 885 in attendance for Palm Sunday and then welcomed 743 in worship for Easter Sunday with three more baptisms!
Pastor Mike Gallant and the team at Mt. Etna Community Life Church (a former UMC congregation that joined our district this year) welcomed 96 people for Easter, almost double their regular attendance. Two families, who used to attend, have reconnected with the church and three new families have recently started attending.
Pastor Johnnie Blair and the team at Tipton Trinity Wesleyan Church hosted a community Easter Egg Helicopter Drop on Saturday with 1500+ participating and welcomed 371 for worship including 35 first-time guests and two professions of faith!
Pastor Shane Wilson and the team at Columbia City New Hope Wesleyan Church hosted their annual Easter drama before Palm Sunday with more than 700 in attendance and 10 decisions for Christ. Then, on Easter Sunday morning, they welcomed more than 500 in worship attendance and celebrated six baptisms!
Rev. Mike Weller and the team at Restoration Church in Anderson set a new record with 58 in attendance for their Easter service!
Pastor David Shafer and the team at North Anderson Wesleyan Church welcomed six new members into their church family and celebrated 4 baptisms on Easter Sunday morning!
