HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS: CROSSVIEW GIVING TREE
Gifts due next Sunday, December 16
This year, Crossview Church would like to fill Christmas Wish Lists for a few organizations in our community. If you would like to participate in this giving, lists of practical items can be found at the Giving Tree outside the Café. Please return unwrapped items and place them under the Giving Tree by Sunday, December 16.
Organizations we are partnering with include the Wood County Jail, Youth For Christ Juvenile Detention Ministry, Three Bridges Recovery, The Drug Court Program and both Oxford Houses in Wisconsin Rapids.

CROSSVIEW LETTER CARRIER
Next to the tree, you will find a mail station. Please take a moment to write a letter of encouragement to an inmate, a student currently in juvenile detention or a person who is in recovery from drugs and alcohol. Let them know the love and grace of their savior and that Crossview Church cares deeply about them. Return letters to the Crossview Mailbox.

CROSSVIEW KIDS NIGHT – CHRISTMAS OUTREACH
Monday, December 17, 6:00-7:30pm
Join us for an evening filled with Hope, Peace, Joy, Love and Christ! Kids grades 2-5 will be making a present for their parents, playing games and enjoying treats. Parents are welcome to join for a special evening of fellowship, refreshments and creativity in a designated parent lounge area. We are also very excited to welcome families of individuals who are actively in a recovery program. “Dear friends let us love one another, because love is from God.” (1 John 4:7a)

YEAR END GIFT – MERCY FUND
Every year at this time Crossview Church selects a project that we can give towards that shares the love of God with others. With God’s guidance we selected our Mercy Fund. Would you please consider making a gift above and beyond your regular giving to the Mercy Fund this year? You can do this by making a check payable to Crossview Church with “Mercy Fund” written in the memo or give online and select “Mercy Fund” as the designated place to give. Thank you for helping us impact the Wisconsin Rapids community with the love of Jesus Christ!
