Visit With Us! 

At Cross Timbers, we strive "for the glory of God in all things." Above all, we strive to worship God with our lives, plans and possessions so that in all things He might be glorified and in everything be preeminent.
 
Visit with us and you will find a fellowship of outgoing, accepting, caring and genuine people who believe in faithfully and accurately proclaiming the Word of God; training ourselves to be equipped and effective laboring disciples; establishing a strong biblical community; and living out the gospel in our individual lives, our families, and as the body of Christ that we might be bold and effective  witnesses to the Truth of salvation in Christ!

Worship at CTBC and Covid-19

March 18, 2020

The leadership of Cross Timbers Bible Church continues to monitor issues associated with the rapid spread of Covid-19 in our country and Texas. A decision has been made by our Elder Board to comply with the newest request coming from the White House and the Centers for Disease Control. In a large public effort to “flatten the curve” (stop rapid expansion of the disease) one new recommendation is to avoid groups of 10 or more for 15 days. We believe it is now important to do our part as a church to help slow this pandemic further, including sending a clear message to our community that we -- in the name of Christ -- care about them and will do our part.

We are suspending public worship at our CTBC campus until at least April 5, which is Palm Sunday. We will reassess prior to that date for a final decision moving forward. Hopefully, things will be improved. We will pray to that end. In addition, our weekly small group fellowships will not meet. Currently scheduled events for students, women’s ministry and men’s ministry are also postponed. The women’s retreat that is scheduled is far enough out on the calendar that it will stay on track – unless current events persist. We will keep you advised on all these issues.

We will creatively worship using technology available to us and are quickly looking at options for streaming video, prerecorded video from CTBC posted to YouTube, and other options for preaching/teaching and worship music. We will let you know as soon as possible which methodology we will be using for “remote” Sunday worship.

We are preparing suggestions for family worship at home and strongly encourage you during this time to gather regularly with your household family members to enter the Lord’s presence with prayer and worship.

As believers are we afraid or acting in panic? No, our hope and faith is in the Lord:

Surely God is my salvation;

I will trust and not be afraid.

The LORD, the LORD himself, is my strength and my defense;

he has become my salvation.”

With joy you will draw water

from the wells of salvation.

In that day you will say:

“Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name;

make known among the nations what he has done,

and proclaim that his name is exalted.

Sing to the LORD, for he has done glorious things;

let this be known to all the world.

Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion,

for great is the Holy One of Israel among you.” (Isaiah 12:2-6)

As we proceed we will update communications via our church email list, the church website (xtbible.org), and the church FaceBook page (https://www.facebook.com/pg/CrossTimbersBibleChurch/posts/?ref=page_internal).

We have an amazing array of tools to communicate. Stay in touch with one another (phone, texts, emails, social media, etc.). If you know of any needs and cannot meet them yourself, let us know. Keep watch over your older family members and acquaintances who may be vulnerable. Be a blessing to neighbors and friends. Practice “social distancing,” but let God use you to make a difference during this unprecedented time.

Stay tuned. If you have questions please ask.

For the Elder Board,

Dr. L
