SUNDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY CLASS - This class explores the Biblical theme and Scriptural texts central to the day’s worship service. This is a wonderful time (9:00-9:45 a.m.) of reflection, sharing, and growing. We invite you to join us and invite someone to come and be with-you. This class will meet each Sunday through July.

MISSION AND OUTREACH

THE GOLDEN CELERY COMPETITION
July 1st - August 1st
This is an opportunity for the faith communities of the Salt Lake Valley to engage in some friendly competition to see who can raise the most pounds of food per capita during the month. Typically, Crossroads Food Pantry experiences a drop in donations with an increase in participants during the months of June & July. Last year, June saw 2200 pounds of food donated, compared with over 18,600 pounds during the Golden Celery competition! This increase allows them to continue serving those who are deeply in need. Cottonwood will attempt to 'capture' the Golden Celery trophy that has continuously slipped our grasp, though we have always made a valiant effort!
WE NEED YOUR HELP - THINK HEAVY AND STUFF THE CART!!!!
