Join us on May 5th-7th as we experience a weekend of worship and service together. This express CROSS experience invites current 6th, 7th, and 8th graders to engage with two urban ministries in the city of Charlotte, while discussing our call to put our faith in action!
We’ll embark on a journey of mission right here in Charlotte, NC through our church’s CROSS program. Youth will have the opportunity to spend two nights in the Outreach Center. The week will open our eyes to the needs of our brothers and sisters here in our own city and you will be able to put your faith in action responding to those needs.
