CROSS CARES
Cross Cares is our Homeless Ministry that started as an after-school club stuffing bags with “easy-open” food items and hygiene kits.  Cross Lutheran has partnered with Steve’s Pantry at Gruene United Methodist Church.  They provide us with the bags; we fill them up; and then they pass them out to the homeless in our community.  On the 3rd Sunday of the month we are asking you to bring “easy-open” food items and personal size hygiene items to support this ministry.  Easy-open items mean that they can be opened without a can opener.  SAMS’s Club and Costco are great places to shop for these items.  Thank you for supporting this ministry.

C3 – CROSS COALITION CONNECTION  
"You don’t have to stop asteroids with one hand or push a nuclear bomb through a black hole to be a world class hero.  The truth is, what you do to help others on a daily basis is what counts the most.  Not every day is going to offer us a chance to save somebody’s life, but every day offers us an opportunity to affect one.”  Mark Bezos – Lesson from a Firefighter.  As followers of Jesus Christ, we should find ourselves moved to help those in need and step forward, grasping opportunities to affect lives in a positive way.  C3Cross Coalition Connection, which stands for , is a new group ministry here at Cross.  Our goal is to help support local foster and adoptive families in need.  Stay tuned!  In the coming weeks, our ministry group will share with you opportunities where you can help.  If you have any questions, please talk to one of our group members, Jan & Ernie Simon, James & Shanna Smith or Patsy Saputa.  “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” John 15:12
