GO Update by Ian Stevenson

GO is ready and excited about all God has been and is doing through the people of The Crossing!
Our goal is to update anyone interested in what’s GOing on with our Outreach efforts.

We are officially starting the PERSONAL GO NETWORK – If you are willing to share the names of 3 people you are personally reaching out to and would like to receive monthly encouragement and ideas of events, resources and things you could do or share to help reach them then... REPLY TO THIS E-MAIL with the three names and you will officially be a part of the network!
