Franklin Campus Has Exciting News!
We made an exciting announcement today at Cross Point Franklin!
One year ago, our campus made the decision to lease a local building. It was a bold move as we were only 6 months old. As we began to work with the city to gain permits and approvals, we quickly found that this building would not work for what we needed and we had to walk away.
Today, we announced that God has provided a new location for us.
Just two weeks ago, we were approached by a local church. A local Pastor that I have gotten to know took me to coffee. He shared an amazing story. His church was making a huge decision. they were deciding to look beyond the little church “c”. And focus on the big church “C”. What do I mean? Well. due to a convergence of unforeseen circumstances, and providential opportunities, their church was going to be shutting its doors. And… they wanted to assimilate into the Franklin campus of Cross Point Church.
I was blown away! Here is a church that is healthy. People that want to impact their community. People that are serving and giving. A church that is doing what God has called them to do… Impact a community for His glory. Yet, even in the midst of this, the leadership was being moved by God and called by God to move on. One of the most difficult things we can do, is to be faithful to the things God is calling us to do. But when we are, it reminds us that God is in control and we are truly his servants. This church, and its leadership understand this completely.
So, this church has chosen to shut its doors as an organization. But, it has chosen to continue to be a church that impacts this community by joining Cross Point Franklin.
In a few weeks, Cross Point Franklin is moving into a new location. We are moving into this church building that has been opened to us. We are not merging organizations, we are choosing to partner as “the church”. A group of people serving this community under the vision, mission and leadership of Cross Point Church.
There is clear evidence that God is in control of this step of faith. He has shown himself over and over in conversations, responses to the news. leadership decisions and organizational details. He is in control!
I am excited to announce that on January 12th, Cross Point Franklin will begin its new journey at 415 Franklin Road in Franklin, Tn. This is the prior home of Cumberland Church. It will now become Cross Point Franklin and its going to blow this community away!
