TRUNK OR TREAT
Tuesday October 31st, ~ 4:00-7:00 pm
Crossview Church is planning a big event called ‘Trunk or Treat’ to reach out into our community on Halloween night. For those who may not know, Trunk or Treat was started in the late 1990’s by churches that were uncomfortable celebrating some of the themes of Halloween. Trunk or Treat is a fun and safe way to provide families an alternative to trick or treating door to door. It’s fun because costumed children walk through a parking lot of many different decorated cars collecting candy. It’s safe because it prevents one of the biggest dangers of trick or treating: kids running around streets with moving cars. Trunk or Treat gives families a way to celebrate in a safe environment while at the same time being respectful of their neighbors who don’t celebrate the holiday. By hosting Trunk or Treat we control the content and keep the negative connotations out of the celebration such as witches and demons.
How You Can Help
By creating our own celebration of the holiday, CrossView Church can give back to the community what was once an innocent and fun way to celebrate the changing of the seasons. There will be music, food trucks and entertainment available to create excitement. We ask you to join in the fun and activities in many ways. You can provide your car to be decorated for the event, you can help decorate cars, you can purchase candy for the cars to hand out, you can run some of the games for the children to perform, you can make posters or hand out tracks. We also need people at the welcome station to guide the parents and the kids on where to go. We need people to help with parking during the event to keep the children safe. This event will be promoted extensively throughout our community so we need your help to make this a memorable event.
Stop by the display in the foyer this Sunday to inquire about how you can be a part of the excitement and fun. Please volunteer to be a part of this event, so CrossView Church can shine a light in our community by spreading God’s Word, bringing him glory and praise during a time of year where he has been forgotten. Let’s put back the good, from what the secular world has taken away from a Christian holiday!

Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me will never go hungry, and he who believes in Me will never be thirsty.” ~ John 6:35
The mission of the Meals Ministry is to provide complete meals for those who attend CrossView Church that are in crisis or transition due to surgery, illness, accident, birth or bereavement. CVC families prepare and deliver hot meals to the family in need at no cost to the church. The goal is to meet the family's needs for meals while connecting them with Christians from our church during their time of transition or crisis. If you are in need or if you know someone that is (in Illinois and Wisconsin), or if you can help by preparing a meal, please contact Sharyl Culbertson at 262-857-6954 or the church office.
SHORT-TERM MISSIONS OPPORTUNITY FOR 2018

During this two-week period, the team would be ministering to the local people during Sunday and evening services with music and personal testimonies, as well as children’s activities during the day such as sports, crafts, English lessons or music lessons. There will also be events such as barbeques and hikes to enable sharing of the Gospel in a more informal setting. A team of at least 12 people is needed who can offer their talents as musicians, speakers, and teachers. An administrator is also needed to coordinate the travel details, paperwork, and activity planning.There will be an informational meeting on Sunday, Aug. 6 after our worship service.
