#GivingTuesday 2016

#GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events of Black Friday and Cyber Monday in order to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support. This year #GivingTuesday occurs on November 29. For the second year, CrossPoint Church is participating!

Last year our goal was to raise $11,537.04 for the mortgage of the Taylorsville facility. We received $2,330.00 from 29 donors. Despite the fact that we didn’t reach our goal, we were very excited! Working to eliminate this debt will enable us to invest more into our community and bring us closer to being a self-supporting ministry. This year we have composed a short Christmas wish list that we hope you'll consider giving to:
  • Taylorsville Mortgage. This is the largest obstacle to our being self supporting. GOAL: $3,379.37 (single month’s payment).
  • Provo Kitchen. This space is in need of a refrigerator, microwave, and shelving and would allow us to both keep food on site for actives and begin a food pantry for those in need. GOAL: $1,500.00
  • Young Adult and College Ministry. This past year individuals in this life stage from both campuses have been coming together each week for Bible study and fellowship. We are also currently working with an organization called BASIC in order to start a Bible study on the campus of either Utah Valley University (35,000 students) or Brigham Young University (34,000 students). We’d like to be able to do more in this area by way of outreach and activities. GOAL: $1,100.00
  • Children and Teen Ministry. This past year we sent our first group of teens to camp, saw an increase in the number of children at both campuses, and trained new volunteers to serve in the classroom. Our Provo campus stands in need of children’s class materials such as decorations and shelving, as well as nursery items like a changing table and glider. We’d also like to get a jump on our teen camp fundraising for next year. GOAL: $2,500.00
You can give using the Donate button below and designate which project you'd like to support in the "Add special instructions to recipient" field.

Thank you for your generosity to ministry of CrossPoint Church!
