Exciting News!

Preparing for Operation Christmas Child

Submitted by Elisabeth Markle

We are excited to announce that our annual involvement in Operation Christmas Child is becoming a bit more involved this year! For over five years our school has collected and donated shoeboxes to Operation Christmas Child, and each year our love for this special ministry has continued to grow. For example, last year we sent our 8th grade class on a mission trip to the Operation Christmas Child Distribution Center in Charlotte, NC, to serve for two days.

THIS YEAR, Cross Schools (in partnership with The Church of the Cross) is serving in a new role that we will announce VERY SOON, so be on the lookout!

While you get excited, you can actually be preparing NOW for this upcoming ministry and school-wide project! “Back to School” supplies are all on sale, so try and pick up a few extra items that you can include in your shoebox. Suggested items include: pencils, crayons, pencil sharpeners, erasers, solar calculators, pens, colored pencils, note paper, etc.

We look forward to serving in this ministry together which will kick off in October!
