Charity Recommendations: The Mission Board is asking for suggestions of charities with which our members are involved. Do you volunteer at or financially support a non-profit organization that embodies our Cross of Christ mission statement “. . . to live out the love of Jesus?” Ideally, the organization is offering hands-on activities as well as needing funds. We select charities for the Mission of the Month and also our annual Antique Show mission fundraiser on the basis of a Mission Grant Application and associated financial documentation. Mission Grant Applications are available at the main lobby Welcome Center or you can download a Mission Grant Application here. The completed grant application can be returned to the church office or emailed to us. We welcome your suggestions!
