親愛的匯點人:

耶穌基督在路加福音19:46中宣稱:「我的殿是禱告的殿」。 我很樂意看到教會成為禱告的殿。 但是,我也認識到一些教會,被使用作多用途的地方, 卻缺乏用作禱告。 會眾們返來教會參加婚禮、委員會會議,事工會議,兒童遊樂……等等、卻很少參與教會裡的禱告活動。既然禱告是這麼重要、也是主對教會的指示,這不但令我悲傷,我深信主耶穌更是傷心。 再思想我們的教會,過去數週, 參與我們主日早上禱告會的人數委實不多。這不但使我有點沮喪,但同時也給我動力和提醒,教會真的要在禱告方面多加改善。

眾所周知,韓國教會很看重清晨禱告會,我知道有一教會每周有四十次禱告會,共有一千人參與。 我真誠地祈禱,祈求弟兄姐妹能積極參與我們每週日舉辦的禱告會。 讓我們禱告, 祈求匯點教會成為一個禱告的殿。阿門。

星期三

為我們教會四個聚會點的復活節外展活勭祈禱。求上帝讓我們能與更多來自各社區但在教會以外的朋友們接觸和建立關係。

星期四

祈求上帝興起更多的禱告戰士參與星期天早上8:45的禱告會,聖靈幫助我們成為一個禱告的殿。

星期五

請為Pleasanton的國語家庭聚會禱告。願神透過他們給新朋友更有家的溫暖和凝聚力。

星期六

為我們的學生事工牧師候選人尋求上帝會給我們智慧和指導,尋找合適的人選幫助建立,照顧和動員我們的學生。


上星期,師母約了一位姊妹見面,預備和她商談資助有關貧苦學生課後補習的事宜。誰知她對這事工十分感興趣,很想能直接參與。她告訴師母,她參加的教會只想維持現狀,大部份會眾只滿足於參加主日崇拜和幫忙做點規律性的事奉,但這位姊妹卻很想用她的餘生做點更有意義的事情。

我和師母都相信有很多主內的弟兄姊妹,他們都很希望在平凡的生活中做點不平凡的事情,而這個願望,正是上帝可以幫助我們完成的。祂要在我們的平凡中,使用我們替祂做點不平凡的事,好讓祂得著一切的榮耀!

匯點教會就是由一班很平凡的人開始,而匯點教會能發展到有四個堂會,也是藉著一群很平凡的人。我覺得上帝之所以揀選我們,是因為我們雖然很平凡,卻有一個忠於上帝和努力把上帝的差事做到最好的事奉態度。

弟兄姊妹們,我希望大家不要只滿足於參加主日崇拜和在這裡幫忙一點,那裡幫忙一點點,我希望大家向上帝祈求能為祂做些更有意義的事情,讓你的人生更豐盛,上帝得著更大的榮耀。

如經上所記:神為愛他的人所預備的是眼睛未曾看見,耳朵未曾聽見,人心也未曾想到的。(歌林多前書 2:9 )

PENINSULA GRAND OPENING
4/14 Sunday
Cantonese Service: 10:00am
Come worship with us! Bring a few friends! Invite everyone you know!!


Last week, my wife met with a sister in the Lord to discuss the possibility of raising fund to subsidize poor students for attending after school program. To my wife surprise, this sister in the Lord was very interested in getting involved in a personal way. She told my wife that her church just wants to keep its current status and majority of the congregation are satisfied by attending the Sunday service and helping out a little on some routine ministry works. However, she would like to spend the rest of her life in a more meaningful way.

My wife and I believe that many brothers and sisters in Christ would like to do something more meaningful in their mediocre life. The God we believe is the One who can help us accomplish our wish. He will help us to do something unusual in and through our mediocre life. By doing this, He will receive all the honors!

Crosspoint Church was started by a group of mediocre people. It has been developed to 4 campuses by a group of mediocre individuals as well. I believe that God has been using us because we try to be faithful and making an effort to do our best even though we are ordinary people.

My brothers and sisters in Christ, I pray that you won’t be satisfied by just attending the worship service and helping out here and there randomly. I pray that you would ask God for doing something for Him which is more significant so that your life will become more abundant and Our God in Heaven will receive greater glory.

That’s why we have this Scripture text: No one’s ever seen or heard anything like this, Never so much as imagined anything quite like it – What God has arranged for those who love him. (1 Corinthians 2:9 )

Pastor Chiu


Dear Crosspointers:

Jesus Christ declares in Luke 19:46, “My house will be a house of prayer”.   I would love to see churches become houses of prayer. However, you may have noticed that many churches have become places for anything except prayer.   The church has become a place only for committee meetings, ministry meetings, playground for children … etc. I am saying this with sorrow, and it may saddened the heart of our Lord, too.   When i look at our church, not too many of us have attended our Prayer Meeting over past few weeks. The numbers were discouraging, yet the situation also is a good reminder and motivator for all of us – to improve and rekindle our ministry of prayer.

The Korean churches are well known their early morning prayer meetings, and I know that that one congregation has forty prayer meetings per week consisting a total of a thousand people.    I sincerely pray that our congregation would engage in our weekly organized, corporate prayer meeting. Let’s pray that Crosspoint Church will be a house of prayer. Amen.

Pastor Alan

FAMILY ACTIVITIES

Crosspoint Church, Milpitas Campus

March 24th, 2019

Sermon Topic: The Servant’s Training: Adversity

Note: We desire to partner with parents in helping their children grow spiritually, but we also recognize many of us feel ill-equipped to handle this responsibility. Here are some ideas for incorporating what you are learning each week into faith conversations at home. Choose what fits your family; make it a habit of sharing and praying together.

FUN FAMILY ACTIVITY:

Activity Level: Play “blowing a balloon” competition during family devotion or worship. Every family member has a flat balloon. All members start to blow balloons at the same time for a minute. Who has the biggest balloon is the winner. (Optional: prepare a reward for the winner.) Holding the inflated balloon in hand (don’t tie a knot) and tell children: God has the power to give air for us to breathe every day. There is a widow whose son got sick; he has no breath in him (let go of the balloon, allowing the balloon to fly around the room and become deflated ). Pick up the deflated balloon and say, “ when a person has no breath; it is like this deflated balloon, no air means no life. The prophet Elija prayed to God to save the widow’s son; God answered his prayer. Blow the balloon again and say “God has the power to make a child alive again.”

Spiritual level: Ask a follow-up question after the above activity: God has the power to give us new lives, do you want to have a new life from God? It means you want to become a Christian and follow Jesus’ example. The new life in Jesus will bring us more close to God each day. If your child decides to become a Christian, please make an ABC prayer with your child (Admit I am a sinner, Believe Jesus is the Son of God, and Confess Jesus is the Lord and Savior.) Contact Pastor Ai-Ling for the next step of discipleship.  

 

BIBLE VERSE:

And the Lord listened to the voice of Elijah. And the life of the child came into him again, and he revived. And Elijah took the child and brought him down from the upper chamber into the house and delivered him to his mother. And Elijah said, “See, your son lives.”

1 Kings 17:22–23 (ESV)

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, We praise You for You’’re the resource of our lives. We thank you for the air in our lungs keeps us alive, and the Holy Spirit keeps us alive spiritually. We pray for everyone in our family to believe Jesus is the Son of God and receive the new life in Jesus. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
