Crossroads Connection is one of our ministry partners, a local nonprofit that runs a backpack feeding program, providing bags of food for kids who receive free and reduced-cost lunches at schools in the Haymarket-Gainesville area.  For the 2022-2023 school year, they are expecting to expand their ministry to feed upwards of $50,000 children.  It costs $250 to provide food for a child for the whole school year, which means they need to raise over $50,000.  We have already committed $500 – enough to sponsor two kids – from our community blessing fund – but we also want to see if we can do even more to help.  So, between now and the start of the school year (August 22), all money donated to the Haymarket Church Mission Fund will be sent to Crossroads Connection.  Our goal is to raise an additional $750 so that our church can sponsor a total of 5 kids this school year. 

If you’d like to support this, simply go to and make a donation to the Mission Fund.  Let’s celebrate going back to school by feeding kids in our community!”
