MISSIONS

"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always to the very end of the age." (Matthew 28:19-20)

"But you will recieve power when the Holy Spirit comes on you and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." (Acts 1:8)

Our desire at Crosshaven Church is to turn the church inside out. We want to get outside the walls of the church and love people and share the only thing with them that will change their lives.

A little bit about our missions ministry...

1. Lifestyle Evangelism - We encourage our members to know God's Word well and to live in relationship and dependence on Christ enough that it becomes natural to them to share their faith wherever they go. God called all believers to be missionaries. We go places and see people every day who need to hear the gospel.

2. Local Missions - We love our community and want to plug into people's lives right here.

  • The Pantry (this is our benevolence food ministry at Crosshaven). We are currently recruiting volunteers to help stock the pantry weekly and to serve in food distribution and ministry on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month.
  • The Link of Cullman County ... go to www.linkingcullman.com for more information about the The Link.
  • Thanksgiving Meal Ministry (providing meals each November).
  • Project Christmas Blessing (helping local children have a gift and know the love of Christ at Christmas)
  • We Love Our Schools (interjecting the love of Christ into our local schools) - Participating in campus Christian clubs and providing needed school supplies for teachers and students in need.
  • We also serve with local ministries such as Royal Pines, The Foundry Farm and our Bible Study serve by conducting local mission projects for people in need.
  • 3. Alabama Missions - Going beyond our county...

  • Most of our Alabama mission work outside of the Cullman area has been in Birmingham (the Jimmy Hale Mission & Jessie's Place, Central Park Baptist Church & School, and ministry to the homeless at Lynn Park).
  • 4. U.S. Missions - Doing our part to reach our country...

  • Navajo Nation in New Mexico
  • Hope Mission Trips
  • 5. International Missions - To the ends of the earth...

  • Impact Peru - Amazon Basin
  • Roatan, Honduras
  • Operation Christmas Child
  • Our Children's Ministry and Youth Ministry both have monthly missions focuses. They take part in various mission projects throughout the year.

    Our Adult Bible Study Groups and Small Groups serve in missions together. Each group is challenged to take on at least one local mission project together each year.
