Christmas Mission Party
Dec. 7th - Crossroads Campus
We start off the Christmas season right by loving and serving others. We are throwing a Christmas party for the kids of our food pantry clients. A party that includes pics with Santa, cookie decorating, caroling, and much more! This has been a mission that has blessed so many lives and we look forward to blessing more this year! 
Senior Adult Tribute Banquet
Feb 7th - CBC
Every year students chose to bless our older generations by giving up a Friday night to serve, love, and bless. Students will get all dressed up like professional waiting staff, learn the proper way to serve a table, and give our senior adults a night they won't soon forget.

Easter Eggstravganza 
April 12th - CBC
One of Columbia's largest outreaches to the community is this event the week before Easter. Hundreds of children and their families come to Columbia's campus to hunt eggs, enjoy games, food and more. Students are a pivotal piece to pulling this event off. Student help in every arena, especially in serving lunch since the profits from the lunch benefit student summer mission trips!
