Summer 2019
Crossroads Student Ministries
Summer Happenings for Students
Hey!

Wishing you and yours a safe, happy, and celebratory Fourth of July surrounded by friends and family!

This week we found out that, due to an injury, one of our female leaders had to step down from the Pittsburgh Project. We have a great need for a 21+ female leader to step up and join this awesome service opportunity with our students, July 15-19 at no cost to adult leaders. We are also in high demand for two SUVs or minivans that our team could use to drive students out to Pittsburgh and the worksites throughout the week. These cars would be returned washed and vacuumed with about 600 miles added total. Please email me ASAP if you are able to help us out in either way!

We have some exciting programs and events coming up next week, so scroll down for more information and sign your student up today!

Have a wonderful holiday!
