Each week in Marine City and Richmond, Michigan, there are discipleship meetings of three to eight people. These meetings allow some of the outpost leaders and the persons of peace to
meet and go deeper into scripture together, using studies like the Seven Stories of Hope, while connecting on a personal level.
This summer, the Crossroads children’s ministry hosted two Power Up Club Vacation Bible Schools, one at the church campus and one at the Shangri La outpost. These two smaller programs did not require the typical amount of preparation for decorations, snacks, and crafts. As a result, these VBS events centered more on conversations and biblical stories, allowing the children and volunteers to focus on spiritual needs without the distractions a more typical VBS involves.
