CROS Ministries End Hunger Walk 2015



This year, we will once again be participating in Christian Reaching Out to Society’s End Hunger Walk on Sunday, October 11 at 3:00 PM. The End Hunger Walk is a 5K (3.1 miles) along Flagler Drive. We walk rain or shine. Walkers are encouraged to make banners, posters, and/or tee-shirts to identify themselves. Each walker is encouraged to collect a minimum of $100 in monetary pledges for their participation as well as a can of tuna or jar of peanut butter. All funds raised at the Walk go to support CROS Ministries’ programs. For more information or to sign up, please contact Janet Lisle.

Since 1978, CROS Ministries has provided food and basic needs assistance to people living in food insecure and low-income households in South Florida. Utilizing the talents of more than 3,000 volunteers, our programs help families and individuals from falling into the downward spiral of poverty, food insecurity, and in many cases homelessness. They include: seven community food pantries; The Caring Kitchen, a hot meal and social services program, summer camps, an after-school snack program, a weekend food backpack program, and a gleaning and food recovery program. All services are provided without regard to race, religion, national origin, marital status, gender, disability, sexual orientation, or age.

Season of Creation


During September, we will participate in the Season of Creation during our worship services. In word, song, and visual art we will celebrate our Creator and creation and explore our place in the cosmos. Aqua, the blue green color of the planet Earth when viewed from outer space, invites us into this season, and the pulsing of God’s spirit that moves in and through all creation. During this four-week season, we experience the deep impulse of God’s word that calls forth creation and stirs life. We affirm our kinship with everything God has created and is creating, are made conscious of the crisis of human domination, and encourage to live in and toward a vision of new heavens and new earth. Join us for:

September 6th Planet Earth Sunday

September 13th Humanity Sunday

September 20th Sky Sunday

September 27th Mountain Sunday

Movie and Potluck Night


Join us Friday evening, August 21st for a church family movie night! We will gather at 6:30 PM to eat (just bring enough to share of whatever you are best at) and at 7:00 PM, we’ll start the movie McFarland, U.S.A., an inspirational film based on the true story of a cross country coach in a small California town who transforms a team of athletes into championship contenders.
