Equipping the Saints

The Crossing partners with many organizations in Columbia devoted to helping others all year long.  This summer, we are highlighting a few of these ministry partners so you can help kids and adults in our city by partnering with one of them. Get involved by giving a high-impact gift that equips them to continue making a difference in specific lives, in specific ways. Tables with gift details are available in the foyer July 16 and 23. Gifts should be returned on July 30. For contact information, follow this link.

Organizations you can partner with include St. Raymond’s Society, Central Missouri Stop Human Trafficking Coalition, BOLD, and In2Action.

St. Raymond’s Society supports mothers who have chosen life for their child, taking particular care to continue support after the baby is born. We provide resources families need to become self-sufficient and prepare them to give their child the security of a stable home.

Central Missouri Stop Human Trafficking Coalition assists survivors in the mid-Missouri area. Human trafficking, a modern-day form of slavery, is the second largest and fastest growing criminal enterprise in the world, and deeply affects our local community as well. We offer varying degrees of financial support, as well as friendship, emotional support, and advocacy as they strive to rebuild their self-worth and their lives free of slavery.

BOLD (Black and Brown Opportunities, Leadership and Development) is a youth empowerment and mentoring organization to support, nurture, and enhance the leadership skills of black and brown girls in Columbia. Our mission is to empower and uplift these girls through enrichment opportunities, leadership training, education, and positive identity development, and to provide a strong social and professional network for them in Columbia.
In2Action provides Christ-centered residential transition services to people recently released from prison. Residents are provided safe drug free housing, provision of basic needs, group and individual coaching, and life skills training to name a few. Our goal is to prepare our residents to become the men God created them to be. For more information check out this post from Oct ’15:
