Crossroads Kids Christmas Choir

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 16 PERFORMANCE (AGES 5-12)

Can your child clap? Sing? Or just look ridiculously cute onstage? If so, they are invited to sing with the worship team here at Crossroads for a special service at North Campus or South Campus.

Registration is due by Sunday, November 25 (pick up your CD in the office by this point so your child can listen and be familiar with the songs prior to rehearsal). If you would like to participate, please note that you and your child will commit to attending/performing all services on Sunday morning, December 16 (8:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon) at your selected campus.

Your child will also need to attend a rehearsal beforehand:
December 12 @ 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. at your selected campus.

If you are excited and can commit to these times, we would love to have your child involved! This will be on a first-come, first-served basis (there is limited space).

Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Gifts

Help bring the joy of the gospel to a child somewhere across the globe!

With Operation Christmas Child, we pack up shoeboxes with Christmas gifts and send them--along with the gospel message--to children in need around the world.

This is a great opportunity to be generous and to share love globally. Get your kids involved by having them help choose gifts and pack up the boxes.

Pick up an empty shoebox and a packing guide in the lobby, and return your packed gift to the church office (either campus) by November 11.

If you'd like to help with collection week (where our South Campus becomes a receiving station for boxes from people and churches across the region), signup in the lobby.
