Crossroads Loves Bangladesh!

Above 2 pictures: from 6/28 service - Jennifer Phillips, wearing a Bangadeshi sari, made 2 kinds of food to share during the service as 'A Taste of Bangladesh' and 3 other ladies from Crossroads who have gone to Bangladesh shared their testimonies/messages.

Note the Bangladesh flag at the left and though it's impossible to see, a map of Bangladesh at right.
This Sunday, we will conclude our 5-part series: "Don't Ride The Fence!"

From church website:

The current message series at Crossroads is “Don’t Ride the Fence!” This series of messages in May and June will focus on the mission field in Bangladesh and the challenging words Jesus says about what it means to be his follower. At Crossroads, we want to partner closely with the Church in Bangladesh and even ‘own’ it as ‘our’ mission. Come ready to be challenged by the lives of sold out and persecuted believers in Bangladesh who show us what “Don’t Ride the Fence!” really means. Join us in May/June for this series.

If you want to be my disciple, you must hate everyone else by comparison—your father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even your own life. Otherwise, you cannot be my disciple. And if you do not carry your own cross and follow me, you cannot be my disciple. Luke 14:26-27 NLT
