Variety Breakfast

Where is the Best Breakfast in Town?

Right here at Cross Keys United Methodist Church!  Come join us  every first Saturday of the month for a great time of fellowship and a wonderful breakfast. June’s breakfast will be held on Saturday, June 3rd, from 8:00 am -11:00am.  Come join us for what most people think is the best “all you can eat” breakfast around.  For the amazing price of $10 (children 3-12 $3, 0-2 free), you’ll want to invite your friends, neighbors, and co-workers to enjoy the great food and fellowship with you.  Volunteers are needed—if you want to join the awesome breakfast team (Friday morning and/or Saturday morning) call Linda Fuscia at 629-3379. 

Thank you to everyone for your help and support of our breakfast months! We will take a break for the summer. See you October 7, 2017! Have a nice summer!

Meal Ministry

Members and Friends of Cross Keys Church: If you have had a recent hospital stay or have been dealing with illness, our Meal Ministry has some delicious meals that they will love to share with you!  Made with love and prayed over, a few meals like this may be just what you need. Contact Pat Sprengle for meals or if you know someone in the church who is in need.

The Hope Mobile Food Bank

The Hope Mobile Food Bank is our monthly community outreach for those who are in need of food.  On the third Saturday of each month we set up a food distribution center in the parking lot in front of our Educational Building.  Volunteers from our church and the community help us to reach disabled veterans, single mothers, senior citizens, and those who have lost jobs.  Each month we are able to help over 100 families.  Volunteers help us distribute food, set up tables, sort food, break apart boxes, to take down and clean up, and to encourage clients who need food.  Thinking of volunteering?  Come to the early shift, 7:00a to 8:00a, the middle shift—8:00a to 9:30a or to the late shift—9:30a to 11:00a.  Your hands can be the hands of Jesus at work in our community!

59th Annual Chicken and Corn Cookout:

Saturday August 5, 3 – 7pm

The Chicken and Corn Cookout is one of the special traditions here at Cross Keys.  Our local skydivers have accepted another challenge to hit the target in our upper field and there will be plenty of fun to go around.  All hands will be needed on deck to make this year’s cookout another huge success.   Baked goods will be needed for the Country Store, your treasures needed for the yard sale, and lots of helpers that day to help us set up, take down, serve tables, operate our prayer station, husk corn, cook corn and more!  Contact Dawn Jennings if you can help out.  All proceeds from the cookout will be used to support our mission projects.  Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door, $12.00 (adults), $7.00 (children).
