    Restoration, Expectation, and Celebration

    Greetings in the matchless name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  I am grateful to serve in the position of pastor of a monumental church that has such a rich history.  The New Cross Temple COGIC has been serving the city of Chicago for over 70 years.  Our founders the late Bishop Moses Cross Sr. along with his wife Dr. Priscilla Cross Hoover were given a vision of ministry with the intent to service the whole man (body, mind, and spirit).  Each Pastor since the beginning has built on that foundation.  Today being the fourth Pastor in succession, with God's help, I intend to continue to build on that foundation of service. 

    God has given us a theme this year in three parts; restoration, expectation, and celebration.  In our battle against the devil, we need to be restored.  Sometimes things may get damaged or we may loose some things.  It is then that we need to look to the hills from whence cometh our help according to Psalms 121:1-2.  God is the  one who can bring us back to where we belong.  We should have expectations.  We should expect God to work miracles.  We should also be mindful that God has some expectations of us (1 Jeremiah 29:11).  In the end, there should be some celebrating.  In the name of Jesus, we have the victory and since we are victorious, I believe God's people should know how to celebrate.  The word of God tells us to make a joyful noise unto the Lord (Psalm 100).

    It is my prayer that the everyone will continue to seek the Lord for restoration, expect God to move in a mighty way, and to celebrate like only the saints know how!  May God continue to bless and keep you is my sincerest prayer.

    Yours in Christ
    Pastor James Cross, Jr.
