Back to School Drive Brings Back Joy
Recently, at our Back-to-School event, a family attended that hadn’t been to Cross Timbers in many years because her three kids needed supplies. The mother opened up to one of our Serve Team members and explained that her daughter was having a rough time. She shared how this outreach changed things for their family that day. The children were blessed by the gifts at the event. They were overwhelmed with how many supplies they received. She said they are making friends at school and enjoying each day! They have so many supplies that they can leave some at home and some at school. They have been using their supplies to make projects and display them on the fridge every single day. She said she could start to see the joy return in her daughter’s eyes. She told us, “Everyone was so kind and loving to us! When we left, my daughter asked me if we could start coming to church here. I knew that it was something special because I always wanted my kids to know God! We felt Him through you. Thank you, Cross Timbers.”
Because of each one of our Serve Team members, staff, and generous givers we can share God’s love in a tangible way through events like our annual Back-to-School drive.
