CBmissions

CBlocal

CBlocal is a group within Crossbridge that organizes our local outreach opportunities. All of our activities will be in the South Jersey/Philadelphia area and will focus on loving people who are in need- whether they are homeless, foster children, lonely senior citizens, children & adults with special needs, families with financial hardships, or anyone going through a difficult time. Our goal is to embody what it says in John 13:35:

By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.

Together We Rise- Foster Care Duffel Bag Drive

Children entering foster care experience so much trauma and fear in those first few days of placement, and they are often forced to pack their items in trash bags when leaving their homes. This leaves them feeling worthless, like they are being thrown away. We'd like to help prevent that for some local kids by creating beautiful duffel bags filled with blankets, stuffed animals, coloring books & crayons, and toiletries. This was our 4th year participating in this fundraiser, and it is always such a wonderful way to give back! Thanks for helping us reach our goal of 100 bags!

CBglobal

CBglobal is in its infancy stages at Crossbridge. We’ve sent teams to the Dominican Republic, Uganda, France, Nepal, & are developing a relationship with the CM&A in the Middle East. This is all fueled by Jesus’ command in Matthew 28:18-20 to go and make disciples.
