New teen outreach at Cedar Rock Sportsplex


 

On August 8, Refuge Youth Network Michigan met for the first time at Cedar Rock Sportsplex, Cedar Springs. Each Tuesday from 6:00-8:30 p.m. area teens from 6th-12th grades are invited to participate in this community outreach.

This ministry was birthed by Pastor Keith Hemmila from Crossfire church and Pastor Randy DonGiovanni, president of RandyDon Ministries. The objective of this ministry is to partner with area church youth leaders and provide an evening where young people can hang out, eat together, have positive input from adult leaders, play games and enjoy wholesome activity. Small interest groups will be developed as the ministry expands. This is a great opportunity for area churches to come together in a neutral setting for young people to get acquainted with one another and to invite their friends. This ministry is designed to complement local churches in our area.

Each Tuesday the format for the evening will be as follows:

6:00 p.m. Eat dinner together. September menu includes: Sept. 5 Tacos; Sept. 12 Spaghetti; Sept. 19 Sloppy Joes; Sept. 26 Deluxe Chips & Cheese.

7:00 p.m. Pastor Randy DonGiovanni sharing biblical truth with practical application.

7:20 p.m. Small group interaction

7:35 p.m. Corporate and small group games, which include volleyball, soccer, flag football, table games and visiting with friends.

8:30 p.m. Night ends!

If you have questions or would like to know more about this outreach, please contact Pastor Keith or Pastor Randy.

Former Islamic terrorist to speak


Kamal Saleem

Former radical Islamic terrorist Kamal Saleem, now a Christian minister, will be speaking at Crossfire Church, 4780 Cornfield Dr. N. E., Cedar Springs on Sunday night, August 27 at 6:00 p.m. A free will offering will be received at the end of his presentation for his ministry, koomeministries.org

He will also speak at “Refuge Youth Network, Michigan” at the Cedar Rock Sports plex at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, August 29. Food will be served from 6:00-7:00 p.m. Volleyball, soccer, flag football, and table games will be available from 7:45 pm–8:30 pm.

According to his biography, Kamal Saleem was born into a large Sunni Muslim family in the heart of the Middle East. Kamal was then recruited by the Muslim Brotherhood at an early age and completed his first mission in Israel at the age of seven.

Kamal was also recruited by the Palestinian Liberation Organization (The PLO) and other radical Muslim groups. The many years of his radical Islamist training resulted in Kamal mastering every form of divisive extremist tactics. Kamal left his family and home in the Middle East as a young man to enter his mission field: the United States. He brought with him a tremendous passion to convert as many Christians and Jews as possible for the glory of Allah. He implemented his plan, and worked effectively in what we now know as “Stealth” cultural Jihad (Al-Kitmen).

According to his bio, he became a Christian after experiencing the love and care of a Christian orthopedic surgeon and Christian physical therapist after a car crash. He is now an ambassador for Christ, and believes radical Islam is the most broadly disguised present danger to Christians, Jews and all non-Muslim people of the world. Kamal carries a message from God to awaken the Church through the truth, education, and relationship.

Crossfire Harvest Festival


 

Crossfire Church will hold their annual trunk or treat again this year, which they have renamed Harvest Festival.

The event will be held October 31 at the Cedar Rock Sports Plex (4758 Cornfield Drive), from 5-8 p.m.

Crossfire Church started the Halloween alternative in 2012, with dinner, candy and games, and have seen it grow each year. Two years ago they added awards for the candy givers in the categories of creative costumes and decorated vehicles.

Last year they moved it to the Cedar Rock Sports Plex to have enough room for booths, games, inflatables (a bouncy house and obstacle course) and of course, lots of candy.

This year they rebranded Trunk-or-Treat as Harvest Festival, and added an extra hour to present a special kids concert by the Hope Kidz (www.hopekidz.org), and more prizes will be given away.

Two additional churches have joined with Crossfire this year: Bella Vista Church and Rockford United Methodist, along with World Missions, who will have a booth displaying their Talking Bible.

A professional security team will oversee the safety of the evening, although adults will be responsible for the supervision of their own children.

Take your kids, grandkids, and neighbors, and head out on October 31 from 5-8 p.m. to the Cedar Rock Sports for a great time!
