Published 12:00 am Thursday, December 28, 2006
An event that has become a much-anticipated time for spiritual renewal and fellowship will return to the Camellia City in February 2007.
Crosswalk 2007 will come to First Baptist Church of Greenville February 2-4.
Unlike past events that have focused primarily on ministering to women, this year's Crosswalk “Game and Tame:Walking by Faith” will offer an instructive and uplifting environment for both men and women, said Harriet Foshee, one of the organizers for the event.
“We are doing something a bit different this year. We have two outstanding individuals coming to lead our event, Steve and Annie Chapman,” Foshee explained.
“I have heard many good things about their ministry. We are excited about offering this opportunity to the men and women of the community and county.”
The Chapmans, a musical husband-and-wife duo who make their home in Nashville, Tenn., have produced several gospel/contemporary Christian albums and authored numerous inspirational books.
Together, they present a concert of music and stories designed to encourage and inspire all who attend.
The couple has also co-authored five books, including “Gifts Your Kids Can't Break” and “Outdoor Insights.”
Annie Chapman, wife and mother of two grown children, Nathan and Heidi, brings her personal experience and wisdom in Biblical teaching to the platform. Her books include “The Mother-in-Law Dance,” “Smart People Keep It Simple,” and “Running On Empty and Looking for the Nearest Exit.”
Steve Chapman, husband, dad, avid hunter and outdoorsman, offers a unique presentation for men. Along with music and videos, Steve uses a well-crafted gift of telling stories from his own real-life adventures, humorous, serious, and always insightful.
His 14 books include “A Good Husband's Guide to Balancing Hobbies and Marriage,” “A Look at Life from a Deerstand,” and “Reel Time with God.”
Two joint worship services and three sessions each for men and women will be part of the three-day event.
Worship services and women's sessions will meet at FBC and the men's sessions will meet at the YMCA.
A luncheon and fellowship time is slated for noon on Saturday at the Family Life Center at FBC.
Pre-registration is underway now with a registration deadline of January 14, 2007.
The registration fee, which includes all seminars, materials and lunch on Saturday, is $25 for individuals and $35 for couples.
A joint worship service is slated for Friday night from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m at the First Baptist Sanctuary. Registration is slated for Saturday morning in the FLC from 8:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. Session One is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. to noon. Following a luncheon break, Session Three is slated for 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. A closing joint worship service is scheduled for 10 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 4 in the sanctuary.
“We are looking forward to a fun and inspiring weekend. The dress is casual; blue jeans are just fine,” Foshee said.
“We also offer a nursery both Saturday and Sunday for bed babies through 6th grade to help out our moms and dads.”
