Going, Going, GONE!

Well, coming soon - we'll be walking the track at Bedford Community Stadium. Why? To raise money for cancer research with the American Cancer Society. Our team name is "Going, Going, Gone!" - and reminds us that if we work together, cancer one day will be "Gone!"

This is part of our "Go Factor". Leaving the comfortable confines of our church, we serve the poor and hurting. While cancer victims may not necessarily be poor, they are definitely hurting. And we care. Whenever someone hurts, we care. We care about things like cancer - because we know that God cares too!

This is just another opportunity to let people know that we love them!
So, check out the "Go Factor" booth at Crossroads, or go directly to our website and sign up to help.
The event will be held on May 17-18. You can walk whenever you'd like - just sign up first - that way we can have someone walking at all times.
Our team mascot is a baseball. Every "walker" will get a chance to sign the baseball. We hope that one day, like a well hit ball that's high and inside, Cancer will be "going, going, gone!"
