"Thanks" for visiting our site...

Crossway has as it's main purpose and goal, to provide an environment of love and joy, in which you can begin, nurture and mature in a REAL relationship with Jesus Christ and other fellow believers.

We don't "play church"...and are eager to walk beside you, encourage you, as we endeavor to serve the Lord together. We are REAL people! We are not perfect, but are sincere!

You will know and feel the warm welcome the moment you walk through the doors.

If you are seeking a church home "Crossway" is a nice place to worship, just as Three Rivers is know by the motto of " a nice place to live". Come and see for yourself!


It's no use walking anywhere to preach unless our walking is our preaching.

Sermon Notes

Together - Let's Bear Fruit #7

Recap:       John 15:8                  Galatians 5:22                   

Fruit is nine fold as seen in Galatians 5:22 - Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness

So kindness is an attitude, which manifests itself in actions (or kind deeds).

Kindness makes our faith credible. Kindness puts us at risk

HOW CAN KINDNESS BE EXPRESSED?
 Visiting the sick, elderly, lonely. Calling the discouraged. Doing favors. Running errands
Bearing burdens. Encouraging the down-hearted. Giving to the needy. Befriending the friendless.

"Goodness" has the idea of the development of character that is truly good, upright, dependable, and yet still generous and good to others.

Goodness, the fruit of dealing generously with others, it is Kindness manifested. Goodness is from a  Greek word that combines being good and doing good.

1 Timothy 6:18

Who is our Source of goodness? 

                          1 Chronicles 16:34                             2 Chronicles 5:13.

Let’s look at His goodness producing good works in us.

 Romans 7:19-21

 

Why should we do acts of goodness?

                              Ephesians 2:10       Colossians 1:10

What results from our good works? Matthew 5:16

"The good word without the good walk is not effective.", it is mere talk.

Any possible area for spiritual growth this week? Choose some people and demonstrate longsuffering (lenience through understanding), kindness, goodness (doing acts of generosity). What a difference we will make in our community if we do this during the week and allow it to develop into a lifestyle.

John Wesley told Christians to “Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.”

 

Galatians 6:10

 Good works do not produce good character.

Good character produces good works.
