Communion Offerings

 

JUNE COMMUNION OFFERING
Crossroads Ministry
SPECIAL COLLECTION – Back to School
 
Now in their 12th year, Crossroads Ministries is an organization for women coming from prison. These women have many struggles and need education, life skills and a safe place as they regain their self-worth.
Their facility is a place of refuge in the storm. It is a two-phase operation. The first is where women come in from prisons, treatment centers, or abusive situations to find a safe and positive environment for up to 120 days. The second phase places more independence on the women and supports and encourages them to find jobs, start paying rent, and prepares them to live on their own. All the services are free of charge to the women who come to the home. Our offerings are a vital part of helping this local ministry rebuild these women's lives.
 
2021 marks the twelfth year to assist children at Luther Branson Elementary School through our "Back to School Ministry". In previous years, administration has requested school supplies, uniforms & shoes for some of their neediest students. Through your monetary donations we will be able to meet these needs again this year. Thank you for helping us start these students 2021-2022 school year off right.
