Thank you to everyone that participated in this year’s Cross & Crown 3×3 basketball tournament. We had a great turnout along with improved competition from last year. We enjoyed getting to see some old friends, as well as, meet some of you that have been involved with Cross & Crown at some level in years past.
To close we would like to thank this year’s sponsors for helping improve the quality of the tournament along with helping us generate some additional funds towards our ultimate goal of $400,000 to build a gymnasium. Thank you Foreman Therapy Services, Toy Gun Films, Innovative Eye Care, Utopia Graphix & Rudy’s BBQ.
If you would like some additional information about our vision for the gymnasium please read the following:
Thank you for participating in Cross & Crown’s second annual 3×3 Hoop-It-Up. Whether you are actively competing in the games or just coming to enjoy the day’s festivities we appreciate your involvement and willingness to help.
Today’s tournament has a duel purpose. First, by being involved today you will have an opportunity to meet Cross & Crown staff, volunteers & other partnering individuals & churches. Our hope is that through these relationships & shared passion we can build momentum towards furthering the mission of Cross & Crown: To proclaim the love, hope & mercy of Jesus Christ through service & prayer.
Secondly, today’s tournament has an objective of communicating a more specific vision of ours at Cross & Crown. This vision is to construct a gymnasium in order to further benefit the neighborhood and serve as a long term resource as we continue our calling in this small corner of Oklahoma City.
We believe a part of our calling as Christians is to serve individuals as Christ served those He encountered. We believe an effective way to address an individuals spiritual well-being is to first address their physical well-being.
Once our fundraising goal has been met a gymnasium will give us the opportunity to address health & wellness related issues, introduce nutritional values & provide mentoring opportunities through athletics amongst many other things.
See you all next year!
