At CrossLife, we have adopted a missions approach based on Acts 1:8. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the Ends of the Earth. Acts 1:8 NIV
Witness in Jerusalem (the Elkridge Community):
For over 11 years we have held a low cost, high quality camp for children ages 6 to 13. This week long – half day camp provides physical and spiritual training for kids through the sport of Track & Field. The kids learn high jump, running, long jump, discus, shot put, javelin and God’s Word! Camp runs (hahaha) from Monday through Friday with a track meet on Friday night. For more information, to register, pictures and videos about this great summer camp go to www.CrossLifeEvents.org
CrossLife partners with EES to provide assistance and support. We have helped with the December Holiday Shop, the Bingo Night, and packets for Back to School for teachers. We work with the school on events throughout the year.
