Choose One Change One - One Day
One of our values at The Crossing is "you were made to make a difference," and we want to provide opportunities for you to live out this value. On Sunday March 15 at 12:45pm, we will have our local partners out in the courtyard for you to engage with. We invite you to Choose One organization and Change One life. Some of the organizations we work with have required orientations or trainings to volunteer with them, so we have created an environment for you to preview these partners and get that training done that afternoon. Sign up to participate in this experience today.
