Please partner with us first in prayer as we start our 3rd season of Upward Flag Football and Cheer at CrossPointe Church. Pray for the participants and families that they will come to know the Lord through Our Savior Jesus Christ. Also pray that we will be able to partner with them to show Gods love through this season and years to come. That they will continue to grow in Christ and as a community. Pray for our volunteer, coaches, and referees. Pray that as they rely on God wisdom and grace. That He would work through them guiding them through this season.

2 Corinthians 4:6 NIV
 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to
give us the light of the knowledge of God's glory displayed in the face of Christ.
Matthew 5:13-16 NIV
 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty
again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. 
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people
light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to
everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may
see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
