Meeting the needs of our local communities.
The heart of Cross Timbers has always been to serve our communities. Meeting the needs of those locally is just as important to us as meeting the needs of those around the world. It may look a little different ineach of our communities but the heart behind what we do does not change. We strive to engage the families of our towns right where they live. We firmly believe the local church can positively impact communities. As our local communities began to grow and expand, we began to see needs arise in the daily lives of those that called our towns home. We are honored to serve our local communities in the following ways:
