Endorsed by Curators:
Crossroads Church will be hosting Drop & Shop 2017 to serve families in our church and community that have special needs. Parents will drop their child off from 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and will have the opportunity to go Christmas shop. During this time the kids will participate in various rotations such as a Bible lesson about Jesus' Birth, Arts and Crafts, Sports and Games, and Music. Each rotation will last approx 40 minutes.
The goal of this outreach is to provide much needed respite for these families, share the true meaning of Christmas and reach unchurched families in our community. Don't let your inexperience with this awesome population keep you from jumping in to help. We will make sure you are well equipped for your role and we will have plenty of support staff to help!
VOLUNTEER INFO MEETING: For those who have signed up or are interested in helping, please make it a priority to attend our informational meeting on Sunday, November 12th in Studio 4 immediately following the 11:00 service. The meeting will be kept short, as we want to be mindful of your time. We will go over final details of what the Drop and Shop day will look like.
