Missions

What does the Crosstimbers Missions  Ministry do? The Missions  Ministry seeks to inform and motivate members to serve and share Christ in the  local community and globally (cross-cultural outreach). It provides leadership  for various activities, initiates activities, seeks funding, and informs the  congregation.

Local  Missions: Crosstimbers serves the local community  through its own Benevolence Fund and Serving Hands Ministry. We also cooperate  with Community of Faith United (COFU), a food/clothing/job assistance program  to assist those who are truly in need and wish to become self-sufficient, and  with the Cold Weather Care Initiative, a network of organizations and churches  which provide shelter and support to the homeless in Adams County.

Global  Missions: Our primary ongoing mission effort is  Keirungi Children’s Village in Kabale, Uganda.   Crosstimbers is the sending church for Shawn and Primrose Cox and their  son, Samuel, as they work with Bread of Life African Ministries (BOLAM) to  provide homes for orphaned and abandoned children, many of whom have HIV/AIDS.

Short-Term  Team Mission Trips: Crosstimbers teams have travelled to serve in  Panama, China, and Mexico; our next mission trip will be to to Uganda in the summer of 2011.
