Van Rehomed

National Night Out
2012
Crosstown is officially without a vehicle, which means saved money on maintenance and insurance. Earlier this year the bus was sold back to the dealer and this month the 15-passenger van was rehomed. Crosstown was actually the second church home for the van. In the early 2000's another church decided it was time to cut their 15-passenger van.

The van came to Crosstown where it was utilized for a handful of mission trips. It provided a taxi service for Keewaydin children to attend Eagle's Rock After School Program and Nepali children from the Phillips neighborhood to attend Wednesday night Kidz II. Perhaps the van's most frequent function was to help haul things like tables and chairs to events like National Night Out.

The van has now been rehomed to its third congregation, Living Hope Community Church in Chatfield, MN pastored by Paul Langmade. This congregation is without a permanent worshipping location, so the van will be of vital assistance as they have high transportation, set-up and tear-down needs every Sunday. You can learn more about this congregation in their story video and read their thank you note below.
Crosstown Covenant Church,
We are excited to have your passenger van. Our youth ministry will use it frequently for a variety of events (monthly service projects, retreats, mission trips). Our men's ministry is already talking about using it for a fall retreat. Our outreach team would like to use it in our local parade. We know it will be used often and we are very appreciative of your generosity!
With a grateful heart,
Pastor Paul Langmade
Living Hope Community Church
