Reaching Just One More!

Every week, CrossPoint is in the middle of some mission field, serving, witnessing, ministering and caring in the name of Christ. The last week of October we were given this huge assignment:

They did the Mash!

What happens when you get over 200 people together for a Monster Mash/Halloween Dance? You get a whole lot of fun and excitement! Recently Crosspoint Church partnered with Trussville City Schools’ Exceptional Education Department to host a great event to benefit students from Trussville City Schools, as well as, surrounding metro area schools.

Hewitt-Trussville High School Exceptional Education teacher, Carrie Jones said, “The Monster Mash was planned as an engaging activity that allowed students to interact with peers, develop friendships, allow for a sense of group identity, and increase self esteem and confidence.” Students from the Life Skills Class at Hewitt-Trussville High School spent a lot of time planning and preparing for every detail of the event. “It is my hope that people, not involved in this type of program, will recognize the importance of these events as teaching activities and the impact they have on the lives of those involved.”

Participating Schools:

• Mountain Brook High School
• Mountain Brook Jr. High
• Hoover High School
• Hoover High Freshman Center
• Hewitt High School
• Spain Park High School
• Pell City High School
• Springville High School
• Moody High School
• Vestavia High School
• Simmons Middle School
• Berry Middle School
• Springville Middle School
• Pizitz Middle School

Special thanks go to:

• Crosspoint Church for providing the facility, volunteering staff to assist with decorating, take down, and welcoming attending schools
• Blake Advertising – Cindy Stewart for providing favors
• Jim N Nicks, Dominoes, Papa John’s Pizza, Publix, Food World for providing food for the meal
• First American Bank –monetary contribution to assist with providing the entertainment
• Student Services Exceptional Education Department for handling all the behind the scenes details

It is my understanding we are also hosting the Valentine Dance and first-ever prom for the Trussville City School’s Exceptional Education Class. What an honor!

CrossPoint exist to honor God by reaching JUST ONE MORE to become a fully devoted follower of Christ. One part of that vision includes opening the doors to our facilities to deserving groups like this one.

CrossPoint you make me proud!
