Summer Time

The summer months add a level of excitement to our usual ministries at Cross & Crown as we welcome back many of the students from the neighborhood that are out of school for summer break.  The added number of students coupled with our normal volunteer base means that we must become a little more structured in the way that we approach each day.

Our volunteer hours & opportunities remain the same for Cross & Crown throughout the week each Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday.  If you aren’t familiar with our volunteer opportunities all you have to do is show up between 10:00 – 10:20 on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday and we will put you to work.  We need help organizing food, carrying boxes, sorting clothes, working as an “in-take counselor”, and praying with families, amongst other things.

Also, our youth center, Rock Island, continues to be available to the youth throughout the summer months.  Here’s a look at the schedule.

Monday: 1:30- 4:00 All ages lunch & hangout

Tuesday: 1:30 – 4:00 All ages lunch – Elementary crafts – High school Bible study

Wednesday: 1:30 – 4:00 All ages lunch & movie

Here’s a small glimpse of Tuesday’s elementary craft day lead by Stacy, a faithful volunteer, and her 3 children.
