"ADVANCE" IS OUR SUMMER THEME
As we enter the summer season, we want to encourage you to stay engaged with your church. Hopefully, you have some plans for vacation and time to get away, but when you are here we want to encourage you to be with your church family. We don’t want to sacrifice our ministry this summer, but we want to advance! We have been diligent to continue to push the mission forward of reaching people of all generations.
Each summer we launch what we call the Summer Program of Giving. This is simply to keep each other accountable during the summer months to faithfully give to the ministry budget of our church. Your giving allows us to fund kids and student camps, VBS, Impact ministries around the area, and so much more! This year we are centering our Summer Program of Giving around the word Advance. We want to encourage you to stay faithful to give your tithes and offerings to our church so we can continue to reach Northwest Arkansas, America, and the World for Jesus Christ during these summer months. Remember, it is because of your giving that we are able to do all that we do as a church. Even if you are away, you can always give online at crosschurch.com/give or on the app.

Vacation Bible School (VBS)
In this wet and wild VBS, kids will learn that what you do today can change the world around you. When you put your trust in Jesus, you can "make waves" because of His Spirit living inside you. We will help kids understand how they can share God's love with the people around them. They'll discover that when they put their faith in Jesus, God will give them His Spirit. Through fun activities, engaging lessons, and God's Word, kids will explore what it means to "make waves" in their own lives that will influence the people around them.
You are invited to a very special military appreciation lunch on Thursday, June 23. This event is FREE for all active and retired military personnel and one guest you would like to bring with you.
High School Camp | 8th-12th grade (completed)

This camp experience for your 8th-12th grader is unlike any other!

This camp is a great opportunity for your student to get away and be outside of their normal routine so that they can be challenged by and focus on their relationship with Jesus.
