Mobilizing the church to serve children in our community.

It’s that time of year when hayrides, bonfires, pumpkin patches and the holidays really start to kick off and life gets busy, but we know that the Fall Festival at Crossway is a family tradition for so many of you.
This year, we’re doing even more and your kids won’t be able to stop talking about how much fun they had! For you, you’ll always remember getting your kids into their costumes, walking around to the different Bible trunk or treat skits, and seeing the look of excitement on your their faces when they come off the inflatables.
While we want everyone to have fun, we know that the most important part is sharing Jesus with our kids and families in our community. That's why we want you to take part in inviting at least one family to join you this year. Invite them on social media, give them a call, hand them an invite card or do it all!
We can't wait to see you, your family and your friends on Saturday, October 13 at Crossway. Stop by anytime from 11am - 2pm and make sure you stay a while and enjoy lunch. The event is free and everyone is welcome to attend! We hope to see you there!
