What is the Compassion Campaign?

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 the Compassion Campaign.

We would love for you to participate: you can join us in prayer, volunteer, go on a short term outreach, or you can give a financial gift that will cause ripple effects across generations.

Compassion Campaign Booklet

Compassion Campaign 2022 Booklet

The Missions staff at CrossRoads have compiled updates from our Local and Global Partners, along with prayer items, stories and more! Pick yours up starting November 27th at a Sunday service or throughout the week in the main foyer or Missions Corner in the Cafe. Or, download a PDF copy here.

This 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!
