Today, we are finishing up our annual Staff Advance, where we gather the Cross Church staff for a time of focused planning, staff development, and worship. It gives me great joy to serve with the staff of Cross Church, and I look forward to this special time each year. We always return with renewed focus on our missional vision to reach Northwest Arkansas, America, and the world for Jesus Christ.
Immigration: What the Bible Says About It
This coming Sunday, I am going to be delivering a message on the subject of immigration. Please do not miss it. Bring others. It is one of the biggest current issues in the United States today. The Bible does speak to it. If you have not read both of my articles released within the last three weeks on this subject, please do so here and here. Therefore, do not miss the message Sunday entitled, “Immigration: What The Bible Says About It.”
This Sunday, we will celebrate the graduation of our first class of the Cross Church School of Ministry. Join us as we celebrate these ten men and the calling of God upon their lives. You can read more about each of them here.
On Sunday, August 10, at 6 p.m., we will meet at the Arkansas Music Pavilion (AMP) for a family night of prayer and worship for all campuses. Don’t miss this special time. Invite someone to come with you. You can find more information and directions here.

We have only a few weeks left in our Summer Program of Giving…Summer of Hope. Have you honored God this summer with all He has given you? If you need to catch up from being away or would like to set up automated giving, you can do so online here, or bring your gift with you to church on Sunday. It is because of your faithfulness to give that we have seen changed lives this summer in Northwest Arkansas, America, and the world. But we must finish strong!
Yours for the Great Commission,
Ronnie W. Floyd
