Operation Golden Christmas

Celebrate with us as we share the story of Christ in Christmas along with holiday music and distributing special gift bags to every resident in local skilled care centers. Each year Crossroads Ministries is given the opportunity to bless the residents of many area care centers at Christmas. We purchase and collect, wrap and deliver over 9000 Christmas gifts to the residents; some who would otherwise be forgotten at Christmas time. Individuals, families, churches, Sunday school classes and cell groups are invited to join us in this endeavor by helping to deliver gifts, sing Christmas carols and visit with the care center residents. This is a wonderful way to honor our elderly and those who are forgotten for most of the year. We receive calls from the care centers asking if we can deliver gifts to them because many of the residents would not have Christmas without the help of Crossroads Ministries.

Residents feel loved, valued and honored when someone cares enough to remember them. The need is great. We expect to be asked to fulfill requests for over 6,000 gifts this year. We would like to be able to fill every request and thereby demonstrate the love of Christ. There are many opportunities to serve with Operation Golden Christmas from adopting a care center and delivering gifts to providing a financial gift or purchasing and wrapping the gifts that will be distributed to the care centers. We begin to prepare for this event in the fall, but contact us for more information any time of year at judy@crossroadsusa.org

We also organize Operation Easter Hope in the spring where we host an evangelistic Easter service with music, resurrection message and Easter basket distribution. Find out more about this project here.
