Staff Love Offering

As we celebrate Thanksgiving and the season of Christmas, we want to express appreciation to our wonderful staff for their dedication and ministry throughout the entire year. Our tradition at Crossroads has been to contribute to an annual love offering as a way of saying “thank you” for the many ways in which the staff has blessed our church. Over the next few Sundays, you will have the opportunity to contribute to the Staff Love Offering by using this envelope provided or by simply designating “Staff Love Offering” in the left hand corner of your check. Please make your contribution by Sunday, December 13th.
