Christians Reaching Out in Service in Saint Paul

Urban CROSS is a grass-roots locally grown week long mission event sponsored by Mounds Park UMC in Saint Paul. We invite youth and adults of all ages to join in serving the Dayton’s Bluff Community. Some of the projects we performed included yard work, landscaping, gardening, gutter cleaning, simple home and garage repairs. This year we had 30 week-long campers representing five congregations from across MN. We also had 50 volunteers as our support staff and 20 community sponsoring organizations including the MN Builders East. In all, we served 42 home owners and organizations. On Wednesday evening, we hosted a community-wide picnic in the park where over 200 neighbors came. We worked during the day and every evening worshipped together. Urban CROSS serves home owners who are incapable of doing these projects themselves or cannot afford to hire out their projects.
