“Cross Road Church enjoys a very special relationship with The ARC of Sedgwick County. When our church began in 2002, The ARC provided a space in their building for a fledgling church to have Sunday morning worship services and for Cross Road and The ARC, it was the beginning of a wonderful relationship.
The ARC, (formerly the Association for Retarded Citizens), is a not-for-profit agency serving individuals with developmental disabilities including: Mental Retardation, Down syndrome, Autism, Epilepsy, and Cerebral Palsy. The ARC provides support and services to benefit the entire family. The ARC is often the first link to community services and one that can follow an individual throughout his/her life.
Cross Road is involved in several events with the ARC each year including an annual Thanksgiving Feast.” Taken from the Cross Road Church Website H.E.R.E.
I have had the opportunity to help with the Thanksgiving Feast for the past 2 years. It is such a rewarding time. I love it! The husband and I get to help dish up the food and A gets to help, too!
The Thankful Feast is held at The Cotillion. This year every family from our Life Group was represented and we all had such a great time.
This gives you an idea of the size of The Cotillion.
The beautiful tables and the entertainment!
