Sunday Highlights: GIVE! Your Shoes
I’m not even sure where to start with today’s Sunday Highlights. It was one of those days that reminded me of how much I love being a part of this place.
We started with some exciting announcements for the New Year:
1) The launch of our newest campus, Cross Point Downtown. Geared towards 18-25 year olds, this campus will open January 16th at Rocketown and will meet each week at 8:00 p.m.
2) Our internet campus. This one is probably a bit overdue, but we’re excited to launch a weekly live online experience beginning in February.
So excited about the opportunity to reach even more people in 2011. Can’t wait!
Then we did this:
Pete challenged us with a message about generosity today and our generosity was put to the test by being willing to leave our shoes at the door as we left the service this morning. (Keep in mind it was about 30 degrees.)
We partnered with a wonderful organization called Soles 4 Souls and collected shoes at all four of our campuses this morning. We’ll collect shoes all this week and Soles 4 Souls will distribute them to some of the 300 million people around the world who don’t own shoes. A small sacrifice on our part could make such a major difference to someone else!

Also, big thanks to our local news stations for coming out to share the story.

Thank you to every one at Cross Point who participated today in the shoe drive. You inspired me!
