News About CROS

Ruth's Blog

Dear Friends,

CROS Ministries turns 40 this year! I am grateful that in 1978, a group of United Methodist Churches came together with the sole purpose of meeting the community’s unmet needs. These congregations realized that together they could make a bigger difference, and Christians Reaching Out to Society, Inc. was born. Overtime, CROS Ministries became both ecumenical and interfaith, collaborating and working together with individuals and groups from different faith communities.
