School Supply Drive

As the summer comes to an end and August approaches quickly, school starts back soon for many of our students. With school comes all kinds of expenses from clothes, athletics, band, supplies and more. This month’s Dollar Day went towards buying backpacks and school supplies. Helping Out Along with using the money from Dollar Day for July, we have also been accepting donations to help fill even more backpacks. As in the past, we have partnered with Little Elm ISD and…

The Bible IS for Preschoolers

The B-I-B-L-E, yes that’s the book for me, I stand alone on the word of God, the B-I-B-L-E. Did you ever sing that song as a kid? Did you believe it?

One question that came to my mind as I was sitting in…

Iron Sharpening Iron Men's Ministry at CrossRidge Church

Men’s Conference Recap

God’s message was clear to us, “The Lord is with you, Mighty Warrior!” The Lord is with you, Mighty Warrior! These were the words an angel of the Lord spoke to Gideon years ago. Gideon heard these words while he was hiding from the Midianites in a wine vat. Gideon was far from a Mighty Warrior at that point in his life. However, God saw Gideon for who Gideon was in Him. Gideon was a Mighty Warrior in the Lord’s…
