We partner with our local community and support our missionaries.
We financially support several people who are on a mission to the world and consider the Crossing as their home church. The means by which we support them financially is our Faith Promise budget. Faith Promise is an offering made above one's tithe to the church to help support the endeavor of impacting the world for Jesus Christ. To give to Faith Promise, you can either write "Faith Promise" on the memo line of your check or when you donate online, select "Faith Promise" under the Categories & Funds drop-down menu.
Learn about our long-term missionaries
We support missionaries all over the world, who are members of the Crossing. Find out who they are below.
Currently, we are partnering with St. James Church UMC and having a Christmas party for 75 kids. Get involved by purchasing gifts for each child's stocking by ordering from a gift registry set up on Amazon. All gifts are delivered to the church. Then on Dec. 1, the Crossing is having a complimentary Christmas dinner along with stuffing the stockings and decorating the Crossing for Christmas. Afterward on Dec. 11, we need volunteers to help with the party at St. James. All the details and to sign up for the dinner and volunteer can be found at crossingumc.org/christmasoutreach.
