Crossroads 2013 Mission Trip to Cherokee, NC

Dear Crossroads,

I’m excited to announce the dates for the 2013 short-term mission trip to Cherokee, NC. Crossroads plans to send a team to Cherokee for the following week:

July 27 – August 3

The cost of the trip, like last year, will be around $500 per person, but some family discounts will apply. Married couples and children attending with at least one parent qualify for a discounted rate.

Shortly after the New Year, we will schedule our first team meeting and begin discussing potential fundraising opportunities.

If you would like to be a part of this year’s team, please let me know before January 1. If you have already communicated with me about your interest, you need only contact me if you now know you will be unable to participate. For more general information about the Cherokee Mission, see http://www.mtw.org/Pages/2WK_USNCCherokee.aspx.

I hope to hear from you!

Tim

In principio creavit Deus caelum et terram. Propterea sicut per unum hominem in hunc mundum peccatum intravit et per peccatum mors et ita in omnes homines mors pertransiit in quo omnes peccaverunt. Sic enim dilexit Deus mundum ut Filium suum unigenitum daret ut omnis qui credit in eum non pereat sed habeat vitam aeternam.

Let’s imagine this post’s text wrapped around an image with a caption. Omnis enim quicumque invocaverit nomen Domini salvus erit. In principio creavit Deus caelum et terram. Omnes enim peccaverunt et egent gloriam Dei. In principio creavit Deus caelum et terram. Omnis enim quicumque invocaverit nomen Domini salvus erit.

Sic enim dilexit Deus mundum ut Filium suum unigenitum daret ut omnis qui credit in eum non pereat sed habeat vitam aeternam. Omnis enim quicumque invocaverit nomen Domini salvus erit. Et ait faciamus hominem ad imaginem et similitudinem nostram et praesit piscibus maris et volatilibus caeli et bestiis universaeque terrae omnique reptili quod movetur in terra. In principio creavit Deus caelum et terram. Omnis enim quicumque invocaverit nomen Domini salvus erit.

Outreach Event at The Streetlight Ministry – Wednesday, January 26, 2011

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO THE BAD WEATHER. IT WILL BE RESCHEDULED TO A DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED.

We will again be joining The Streetlight Ministry on January 26 for an evening of service to the homeless community.  Please arrive just before 7:00p.m. and bring a meat or vegetable dish to serve 15-20.  You may bring any dish you like for drop off in the kitchen when you arrive.  Please be prepared for the possible roles:  (a) greet people at the door and supervise clothing giveaway; (b) participate in the worship service until 7:40p.m., when the doors open to serve meals: (c) serve food to people in the food line (only 8-10 people can do this); (d) mingle, sit, and talk with those sitting to eat, and/or assist mothers with their younger children; or (e) help with clean up afterward, starting about 8:20p.m. or so.  Please understand the ministry is fluid, and volunteers are encouraged to be both flexible in their roles and outgoing in their witness for Christ–the most pressing need during the ministry is to talk with those being served.  Volunteers who cannot make it at 7:00p.m. are encouraged to come around 8:20p.m. to help clean up–the more the merrier. 

The Streetlight is located at 1550 Prince William Parkway, Woodbridge; it’s on the north side of the road (left), after crossing over I-95 heading east, just before the intersection with Jeff-Davis highway (Rt 1).  The parking lot is dark and poorly lit, so it’s easy to miss.  Please call Hans or Carolyn Ritschard with questions at 703-670-8971

Monthly Mission/Outreach Event – Wednesday, October 27

Please join us at the Streetlight, 1550 Prince William Pkwy, Woodbridge, VA 22191 a local ministry to homeless members of our community at 7:00p.m.  We will be joining in a brief worship service and message, then serving roughly 100 meals until about 8:30p.m. or so.  Meals are usually provided by local restaurants, but please bring a potluck dish to share, since these are often preferred.  Please eat before arriving and bring the whole family!  Call Hans or Carolyn Ritschard at 703-845-3313 with questions.
