CROSSING COMMUNITY EVENTS

 It was a busy week beginning Monday when Pastor George took a few

 kids fishing that have never fished before. They headed out to

 Schnable Lake and actually caught 34 fish! It was a fun experience! 

 They cooked out and ended the day enjoying ice cream!

 

On Tuesday they headed to 5/3rd park to the White Caps family fun day. 

 Five lucky kids were able to enjoy this day with Pastor George. They

 had dinner with the White Caps Players, took batting practice,

 learned to throw a curve ball and change up, ran the bases, got lots of

 autographs…even met Crash! 

 

On Thursday it was time for our weekly Hot Dog Roast for the kids and

 their families. 

 

Please keep Pastor George and his volunteers in your

 prayers as they reach out to the community.
