Crosshaven allots a portion of our general budget to the Cooperative Program. The Cooperative Program supports the Alabama Baptist Convention, the International Mission Board, the North American Mission Board, and the West Cullman Baptist Association. Part of our budget is also used to support missionaries, mission ministries, local mission projects, and benevolence needs.
Crosshaven collects two designated missions offerings each year on top of our budgeted missions expenditures. These offerings combined with the offerings of thousands of other churches help directly support missionaries and Gospel efforts all over the world.
- The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering - This designated offering takes place around Easter each year, and all gifts go directly to fund missionaries with the North American Mission Board in the United States and Canada.
All Annie Armstrong and Lottie Moon offerings can be given in person or mailed to the church during the designated times each year.
- The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering - This designated offering takes place around Christmas each year, and all gifts go directly to fund missionaries who serve around the world with the International Mission Board.
