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:
