THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING - High Noon At The Well

Trajectory can be a powerful thing. You’re heading in one direction. All your momentum continues that way. But what if something shifts? A re-direct. A pivot. No matter your story, what direction your life is taking, Jesus changes everything. He is the great trajectory-changer. Join us in this series leading up to Easter as we explore stories of people who encountered the Trajectory-Changer, and whose lives were never the same.

In a galaxy not so far away – namely, the Exchange – CrossWinds Kids will be hosting a Jedi Academy for 150 young padawans in the Livermore, Pleasanton, & Dublin area. With the help of United Studios of Self Defense and the 501st, kids from all over our area will learn the ways of the force... or more specifically, how to properly use a lightsaber! We will have games, showcases, martial arts instruction and your favorite Star Wars characters on site to meet and take pictures with the kids.
CWK needs some rebels to help set up the event, run stations, help with crowd control and security or donate Star Wars gear they have so the parents of our kids can just watch and enjoy! You can register you and your padawan here, or contact Josh Peine if you have any questions!
