Here at Crestview, we seek to equip our people with the resources necessary and helpful for spiritual growth! Anyone is welcome and encouraged to use these resources!

Church Revitalization Devotional

Over the next seven weeks, Pastor Casey is encouraging our church to read through one devotion per day and consider the personal responsibility that comes along with revitalizing our church. This will not be an easy task, but it will be extremely beneficial for our church spiritually, for the lost that we will seek to reach in our community, and for the Kingdom of God as we seek to operate in a healthier, purpose-driven, missional, and God-honoring way into the future. COVID-19 has caused alot of heartache, but our prayer is that God would reproof His people through it. When we are able to gather again, may we not return back to just business as usual. May the people of God return to the gathering with renewed intentionality and worshipful attitudes to be about the business of God. Commit to read this devotional over the next seven weeks and let God work in you.

 

Devotions for Revitalization

 

Passion Week Family Devotional Resource

We have been encouraging our people to use this time of quaranteine for family discipleship and worship. With the week of easter upon us, we have found a wonderful devotional resource for families to use in their times of family worship to lead them through studying the events of passion week leading up to the cross and the resurrection of Jesus on Sunday. I pray that this would be a helpful resource for you and your family during this special time of year!

COVID-19 Home and Community Resource

As the days continue to go by in a rapidly changing world, we are having to consider more deeply how we will reach our communities with the Gospel of Christ. We are also must consider how to provide spiritual nourishment for those in our own homes. We want to provide you with an online resource that will hopefully aid you in your endeavors to do both of those things. Below is a link to the WMU site that provides outreach ideas for you in your neighborhood, and resources for you and your children’s spiritual development. Take advantage of this resource and these opportunities that God has placed before us for His glory and Kingdom.

 

"Hello Neighbor" Form

At the link below, you will find a pdf file of an outreach resource that we encourage you to use in your neighborhood. This is a wonderful tool to use during the difficult days of COVID-19 to reach your neigbhors with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Fill out the form with your name, things that you are willing to assist your neighbors (Ex. going to pickup needed items from the store, going to pick up medication if they have a prescription, taking care of kids while they are at work, etc.), your phone number, and then deliver it to your neighbors. The opportunites for service are numerous as we look out for one another during these difficult days! May we show the love of Jesus to those around us!
