Leadership Interest Surveys


 

The Crossroads District Nominations Committee has begun its work to fill vacancies for positions on various committees and organizations in the Crossroads District. To achieve this goal, we need nominations of members of congregations on our District whom you assess to be willing, capable and gifted in appropriate areas of service. 

Pray about members and leaders in your congregations and please consider serving yourself. All completed surveys should be turned in to the district office by March 31, 2022.

Below is a copy of the form mailed out to all churches as well as emailed to pastors.

ERT's assist a Family devastated by Flood Waters


 

While the rain appeared to be nothing unusual when this family looked out the window, upstream a Disaster was brewing. Heavy rains along the Gonzales/Wilson county line was causing the stream behind their house to rapidly rise. Within minutes water was entering the house and the homeowner rushed his family to escape down their road. Fortunately, all were able to make it out safely, but their home sustained significant water damage. ERT’s were able to remove the wet, soggy drywall and enable the family to return to their home, from their temporary shelter.
