Crossings Christmas Outreach

Crossings Christmas Outreach


Be known by love in our community during the Christmas season by participating in our OKC School Christmas Outreach program!

One of the most effective ways to share the message of Jesus is through acts of kindness. We have opportunities to share God’s grace in the midst of real need and transform lives as people both see and hear God’s grace at work in their world.

We invite you to show God’s love by participating in this program, which benefits over 1,000 children and youth who attend one of our inner-city school partners. You can learn more about Missions at Crossings by visiting missions.crossings.church.
