Local Ministries

Below you will find information regarding our outreach into our community.
If you are interested in what we do locally, check out the FCOC, Bread for Life, or Wake the Bear.

Bread for Life

Bread for Life provides meals on the weekend for the chronically hungry children of Flushing, MI. This ministry is one we share with several churches in our community. Every Thursday, throughout the school year, we gather at Holy Cross to pack grocery bags full of food that even a young child is able to access on their own. We do this ministry in conjunction with Flushing Community Schools. The school system identifies the children who are eligible for this food and if you would like to have your child participate, please contact their school. If you would like to help pack the bags, please contact Kelly Jacobs, our Bread for Life coordinator.

Wake the Bear

Holy Cross and other Flushing churches unite to raise funds for the Bread for Life ministry. In late April or early May we sponsor a 10K/5K/5K Competitive Walk/Kids Run called Wake the Bear. All proceeds go to purchasing food for Flushing area chronically hungry children. To learn more about Wake the Bear or to sign up to participate, click HERE.
