THIS WEEK AT CROSSROADS
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD SHOEBOX MINISTRY!
Filled box(es) must returned before Wednesday, November 14. If you prefer to donate items rather than filling a box, we will accept loose items that can fit inside of a shoebox. If possible, we ask that you also include $9 to cover shipping. If you’d like to make a donation to help cover the cost of shipping the boxes, you can make a donation to the church and designate Operation Shoebox on your envelope.

CHURCH WIDE EVENTS
Church Tithing and New 2019 Tax Laws.
There are new tax laws that could affect how you give and have an impact on your personal tax situation. We will have a brief opportunity following the service on Sunday, November 4, for you to hear important questions you may need to consider or ask your tax advisor. These new laws could affect how you give this next year to Crossroads or any non-profit organization. Everyone’s situation is different. These questions and their answers could help you effectively give more and even reduce your tax obligation at the same time. This meeting is designed to help you become more efficient in your giving. There will also be some discussion on little known Social Security decisions for those that have not made those decisions yet, as well as some that may influence your current choices. We won’t have specific answers, but will equip you to wisely ask questions and research your options before next year.
