SHARE YOUR STORY
At 3Crosses, we believe God has authored an inconceivably vast story starting with the creation of the world and extending to the new heaven and new earth (Rev. 21:1). Within this arch, God is writing each of our stories. This means we all have a tale to tell. We might be in the middle of our story, or even still at the beginning, but the tale is our own. And so, we’d love to hear your stories! Please send us an email at email@example.com, or share it through our website at 3crosses.org/stories.

IF: GATHERING, FEBRUARY 9-10
What IF we followed God with perseverance instead of insecurity? At IF:Gathering 2018, we will look at one of Paul’s letters to Timothy as he reminded him of the power and responsibility of sharing the gospel. We want to give God away in the very places He’s put us, so we’re going to gather for the purpose of remembering why following God and making disciples matters. We all get tired, we all wonder if what we’re doing matters, so IF:Gathering 2018 will be the reminder — it will be the celebration. The work we’re doing to share the gospel on the earth is worth it and God DOES move through the little things that nobody sees. Join us! More details at: 3crosses.org/ifgathering
