What is Compassion?
Each year on Christmas Eve, CrossRoads Church allocates 100% of all offerings and gifts towards our relief & community development efforts. This work is done through our trusted partners in Haiti, Uganda, Rwanda and right here in our very own city and region. In the same way God gave His Son to us, we give our gifts to others. We call it Compassion.
The Missions staff at CrossRoads have compiled updates from our Local and Global Partners, along with prayer items, stories and more! This edition is designed as a 28 day prayer guide, with impactful updates about our Compassion Partners and thought provoking readings to help us "become people of compassion". Download a PDF copy here.
This prayer guide is useful and available year-round, so if you missed it during the Christmas season, you can still use the booklet in your daily prayer and devotion time as a way to support our partners throughout the year!
FAMILIES WITH KIDS: Compassion resources for kids available here.
Compassion Prayer Videos
This year, along with the 28 day prayer booklet, we have put together these prayer videos to seek God's hand in helping to provide for our Compassion Partners. We invite you to pray with us as we watch and wait together, in faith.
