21 DAYS OF...

Dear Crosswalkers (and Sunnyvale Christian School family),

Joyful Advent Greetings!
 
THIS SUNDAY our online service will feature Christmas music, baptisms, an introduction to our New Year focus, and a message from Micah 5:1-5a called “A Covid Christmas.” You won’t want to miss this weekend’s worship service which is only being offered online.
 
However, we are busy crafting a most excellent CANDLELIGHT CHRISTMAS EVE SERVICE. This service will be both online and LIVE! We will feature two outdoor 45-minute services to choose from. They will each feature the best Christmas songs, a devotional message from Luke 2:8-12 entitled, "God's Reason for this Season," hot chocolate and hot cider, and the lighting of the candles! It will be a Christmas to remember!! Dress warmly, wear a mask or face-covering, and come ready to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus! You must register to attend one of these services, and you can do so on our WEBSITE!
 
NOW HERE IS A VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT THE NEW YEAR:

21 DAYS OF... PRAYER!!

We praise God for his protection over our church and school these last nine months. As we look ahead to 2021, we will witness leadership transitions, economic challenges, and an ongoing worldwide pandemic. This is a time Crosswalk Church and Sunnyvale Christian School are committed to coming together before the Lord to set aside the first 21 days of the year to prayer and fasting.
 “O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord listen and act!
Do not delay for your own people’s sake, my God, for your city,
and your people are called by your name.”
In this Old Testament passage Daniel was in a time of prayer and mourning for the nation of Israel for 21 days. We will follow his example of dependence on the Lord for three weeks starting January 4, 2021.
 
  • Week One focus: Prayer & Fasting ~ “Oh Lord, hear” (January 4-10)
  • Week Two focus: Repentance ~ “O Lord, forgive!” (January 11-17)
  • Week Three focus: Revelation & Understanding ~”O Lord listen and act!” (January 18-24)
 
Starting Monday January 4  you will receive an email with a scripture, a devotion, and prayer focus. We encourage you to set time aside daily as a church family as we pray together for a community, nation and even globally.  If you have not downloaded the Crosswalk app, this is a perfect time to do so. And you can do that by going onto our website and scrolling down to the bottom of our home page.

A special thanks to Becky Morales (Crosswalk) and Margo Dickson (Sunnyvale Christian School) for leading us on this journey of prayer.
 
With joy in the Lord,

Pastor John
