Missions & Outreach

Crosswood Church has vibrant missions and outreach programs led by several incredible parishioners.  We are active representatives of Jesus Christ in our community, our nation, and the world.

Outreach Ministry to Turning Point

In partnership with a few other secular organizations, Crosswood Church regularly works to support our local domestic violence shelter.  We sponsor children and families at Christmas and on an as-needed basis, provide school supplies, clothing, bedding, and toiletries through our monthly collection drives, support a transportation program, and help in other ways as opportunities present themselves.  This is a wonderful way for you to consider serving the Marion Community!

Outreach Ministry to Red Bird Mission Clinic and Samaritan’s Purse

Folks from Crosswood Church faithfully support the health and community outreach ministry at Red Bird Mission in Beverly, Kentucky, and the international relief efforts of Franklin Graham’s Samaritan’s Purse organization.  We do this by participating in local outreach through the Ohio Department of Transportation.  Donations received from regularly giving out free coffee and snacks each year go to support these important mission efforts.  In addition, we collect Christmas gifts for children in conjunction with the yearly Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child drive.

Ronald McDonald House

We collect aluminum pop tabs for Ronald McDonald House.  Ronald McDonald House recycles the pop tabs to raise funds for wheelchairs.

Aluminum Can Recycling

We collect aluminum cans and recycle them.  The funds we earn enable us to serve our local community.

Elementary Schools

We collect Box Tops for Education to help our local elementary schools.  Most of the children and families helped by our Turning Point Outreach Ministry are local students and families.

Salvation Army Soup Kitchen

Crosswood Church serves dinner at our local Salvation Army Soup Kitchen on the 3rd Monday of each month at 5pm.  Volunteers are always needed – and the folks who receive food through this important ministry are grateful.

Food Pantry Sunday

On the 2nd Sunday of each month, Crosswood Church gathers non-perishable food items and paper products to give to our local food pantry.
