Crosspoint celebrates Serve Day

Published 8:10 pm Saturday, July 14, 2018

Crosspoint Christian Church celebrated its Serve Day on Saturday at various spots across Dallas County.

The event revolved around nursing home visitation, limb removal and yard work, litter and grass detail, assisting with a local store used to support a food giveaway project and a Fun Day at Valley Creek Homes.

“It’s time to quit waiting for the fish to jump into the water, you have to put a hook in the water and try to catch it,” Crosspoint senior Pastor Alan Yarborough said. “It’s all part of our mission statement: intimacy with God, community with insiders and influence with outsiders.”

Crosspoint church members, some who live outside the Selma city limits, saw Serve Day as an opportunity to reach out into the community.

“I want to be able to reach children and adults and show them that God loves them,” said Crosspoint Christian member Helena Britton, a Planterville native.

Valley Grande resident Dana Vines enjoyed participating in Serve Day 2018.

“It was being able to give back to the community,” Vines said. “I used to live in Selma and some of these folks could easily be my neighbors. It was about showing the love and having a life-changing event.”

They also helped with Selma City Councilwoman Miah Jackson’s project Rise Up Selma before its program began. Jackson made an appearance at Serve Day.

“It’s all about bringing pride and being an influence in your community,” Crosspoint Christian George Wood said.

The church is a member of the Association of Related Churches (ACS). This association’s churches are mentored by the Church of the Highlands.
