Make a difference in our community!
I want to bring to your attention an opportunity for our congregation to participate in life-changing work through our support this Advent season in the work of Cross-Lines Community Outreach. Many of you are already familiar with Cross-lines, but some may not be. The stated mission of Cross-Lines is to “provide people affected by poverty with basic services and opportunities that encourage self-confidence and self-sufficiency.”
Cross-Lines was built on a simple idea–that poverty borne problems could be answered best by looking to the community for solutions and working together to tackle them. In 1963 a group of ministers and concerned citizens joined together to improve the plight of the poor. Under their leadership they created a legacy of programs that have positively impacted the lives of thousands of needy people. We are part of that community they look to. Last year Wyandotte Church raised $4800 for ministry in another part of the world. I wonder if this year we could match or exceed that figure for work within our own community? I hope you will join me in contributing toward their good work in the weeks leading up to Christmas and on Christmas day.
Take a look at their video below:
