White Cross

Where can you enjoy the gift of gab, go out to lunch, meet new friends and serve someone in need at the same time?

This is all possible on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at the ladies' White Cross meetings. Everyone is welcome!

At Christmas its great fun to participate in the assembling of gender appropriate gifts for the men, women and children at the Long Beach Rescue Mission. Some of the items included in the beautifully hand made Christmas socks are: shaving gear, tooth brushes and tooth paste, shampoo, soap, combs, lotions, hats, gloves, scarves, jewelry, hair ornaments, candy and small surprises. At this time, we also bake hundreds of cookies and create stuffed toys and dolls for the World Opportunity children in the inner city. Each gift encloses a scripture verse and is prepared with loving hearts and hands.

At Easter, hundreds of small baskets of cookies and candy are put together for World Opportunity. Also, hundreds more large baskets filed with lovely stuffed animals, candy and gifts are made for the Mission.

There are also cuddly stuffed animals for the many babies who are brought to the mission and in need of TLC.

Throughout the year we sew blankets and garments for our missionaries to distribute wherever they see the need.

Each meeting is a time of sharing friendship, food and spiritual blessings as well a being tangibly productive.

John 3:18-19
"Dear Children, let us not love with words but with actions and truth."
