Christmas Outreach

Crossings Missions Ministry is excited for the opportunity to be known by love in our community during the Christmas season with our Inner-City School Christmas Outreach Program!

One of the most effective ways to share the message of Jesus is through relevant acts of kindness. We have opportunities to share God’s grace in the midst of real need. We have the ability to 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 crossings.church/missions/.

Which Schools Do We Partner With?

We currently have four partners in our Christmas Outreach programs:

  • Eugene Field Elementary

  • The Club at Crossings (After-school outreach to John Marshall High School)
