Give to Missions!

Each year, Crossroads partners with the Southern Baptist's International Mission Board to send missionaries across the globe to share the gospel message of Jesus, both through monthly giving from our budget and through special offerings at Christmas and Easter. 

Our church's goal for this year's offering is $20,000. We will be celebrating our progress during our Sunday Morning Worship Services in December.

The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is an annual offering collected by believers around the world to support international missions. The offering was officially named in 1918 by Woman’s Missionary Union in honor of the missionary to China who urged churches to start it and give sacrificially.

This offering is unique from other mission offerings in that 100% of gifts provide for missionaries all over the world. It is a valuable part of Southern Baptists' 175-year history of reaching the nations with the gospel and vital to reaching the vision of a multitude from every language, people, tribe and nation knowing and worshiping our Lord Jesus Christ (Revelation 7:9).
