CrossStreets has many special events throughout the year! These include:
We typically host an Easter Luncheon for our Saturday program where our guests are also invited to see the Easter drama on stage in the sanctuary!
We also coordinate a Food Pantry date with the Children’s Ministry Spring Fling program, where families can bring their kids to enjoy fun, free games and rides and learn about the love God has for them.
During the summer, we make an effort to connect our pantry families with VBS at a local church and to let them know about this fun and free summer program they can take their kids to during the week when school is out.
We also have a special summer event for our homeless ministry, which typically consists of baseball and a picnic at the park.
Our Back-to-School Event in August is our largest event of the year. We partner with Family Giving Tree to help low-income families with back to school supplies and new backpacks. We also offer back-to-school clothing, fun activities for the kids, and a free BBQ lunch.
Fall is also another time that we coordinate a Food Pantry date with the Children’s Ministry Harvest Festival, where families can come have fun together and interact with our church in a different way, all for free.
Additionally, we host a Thanksgiving Lunch (held on Thanksgiving Day) for our brothers and sisters with nowhere else to go. We also strive to provide our Pantry families with special holiday foods, like turkeys, as we are able to.
Christmas is a special time of year where we get to share the love of God in sending His own Son into the world. We get to invite our Pantry families to our Christmas program where they see the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ re-enacted. They also have the opportunity to choose a gift for each of their children that has been donated to our ministry.
Similar to the fall season, we host a Christmas lunch for our Saturday program. This year we hope to also supply our guests with extra essentials such as warm socks and toiletries.
