As a church, we plan to distribute 40,000 New Testaments to our community and want you to be a part of this incredible project! Below are two opportunities for you to be involved as we work together for the same goal of sharing Jesus with people in the Springfield area.
Crossway is filling 1000 shoeboxes with fun items, to send around the world into dark places so that children can learn about Jesus as their savior.
How You Can Help
If you have not had an opportunity to participate through a Bible Fellowship class or want to do more, there are a few different ways you can help:
- Shop for one or more of the assigned items
School Supplies: 20-30 boxes of crayons/scissors; 10-15 packs of pencils/pens; 20-30 spiral notebooks (70 page .25 at Walmart)
Clothing: Boy's underwear size 10-12; toddle 2-4t
Any items collected should be placed at the OCC Table by Sunday, August 12.
- If you're unable to shop for the items or would like to help with additional funds, you can place your gift in one of the OCC labeled envelopes found at the OCC table. Place the envelope in the offering when collected or drop it off at the Resource/Connect Desk. Please make any checks payable to Crossway Baptist Church.
- Prayerfully consider how many shoeboxes you wish to sponsor (a suggested donation of $13 will cover all items in a shoebox). A gift of any amount will be welcomed and appreciated!
There will be a packing Party on Thursday, August 16 at 6pm in the Student Center Gym. This will be a time where we pack all the items collected into shoeboxes and pray over the boxes – that God would bless the work done and use them to reach children with the gospel.
Hope Starts Here in Springfield, our communities and our neighborhoods. The Convoy of Hope Springfield event is just the beginning of a long-lasting movement that has the power to transform people’s lives, inspire compassion and service, and bring people and organizations together like never before.
The event takes place Saturday, June 2 at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds. This is a collaborative effort to bring hope to a city through free groceries, health screenings, job services, family portraits, haircuts, prayer, activities for children and more. If you would like to volunteer, please sign up online through Convoy of Hope.
Crossway is supporting the community outreach by Convoy of Hope that will take place June 2. In preparation for this event, volunteers are needed to help distribute flyers to potential event guests.
