Hawk Point, Mo. - The newly named Crossroads Church has been hosting events for the Hawk Point community including a four-day bible camp, Free Car Washes and a Fun Fest.

Formerly known as Hawk Point Baptist Church recently changed its name to Crossroads Church and is located at 220 Main Street in Hawk Point.

D.J. Little, Assistant Pastor to Student and Children’s Ministry, said that Crossroads has once again teamed up with his church, First Baptist Church of O’Fallon to supply activities.

“I know there was a partnership, we are both Baptist churches,” Little said. “They wanted to be more involved in their community and our church has more resources.”

According to Little they want to be there to encourage and at the same time share Jesus with children.

“One of the things we are trying to do is connect with the community a little bit. We are here to present the Gospel from a religious perspective. We would like to invite kids to come out and play games,” said Little.

Some of the games involve a parachute, as well as playing games such as cat and mouse, football, corn hole, washers and hula-hoops.
