We will be shutting down all operations at Cross & Crown and Rock Island starting Tuesday (Sept. 10) and will resume our normal schedule next Monday (Sept. 16).
For those of you interested, we will be attending CCDA this year. This is an excellent conference that we have attended in years past but have not been able to attend the last several years. The conference offers a variety of classes, workshops and resources for each of us working at Cross & Crown and allows us to generate new ideas, projects and initiatives as we meet with like-minded, inner-city ministries.

We are especially excited to go this year because for the first time we will be taking a couple from the neighborhood with us. This is very exciting for us as identifying indigenous individuals from the neighborhood to take ownership and fill leadership roles has been an objective of ours for quite some time.
We appreciate all the prayers you can muster up and we look forward to rejoining everyone on the 16th!
