Each cross is crafted by a volunteers hand, one at a time, in our Cross The World woodshop. Our crosses measure 4″ tall x 2 1/2″ wide x 3/8″ thick, a little larger than the business card sized message tag that is attached to each of them and they are constructed of various woods … pine, birch, cherry, oak to name a few. No two crosses are alike; sometimes, not all the cross parts for that individual cross are the same.
Interestingly, all the wood we work with in our shop is given a second chance … first rejected by a cabinet maker, it is recycled by us into a small cross and then freely passed on to others so it can live again. What a beautiful visual reminder of God’s love for us and how freely He gives His love so we can all live in Him!
Each cross is accompanied with a message tag, either in English or Spanish, as shown below. Please let us know which language you wish; if you don’t specify, English tags will be sent.
TRUST – in HIS timing
RELY – on HIS promises
WAIT – for HIS answers
REJOICE – in HIS goodness
BELIEVE – in HIS miracles
RELAX – in HIS presence
For easier handling, we pack 50 crosses into a 2 gallon bag and, along with them, we include a brochure/order form for your convenience. When you choose to have us mail the crosses to you, we place 2 bags (or 100 crosses) in a USPS Priority Box and send them on their way. Although there is never a charge for the crosses themselves, we appreciate a minimum donation of $20 per box of 100 crosses to help us with shipping costs. To help keep our office costs down, we don’t send invoices or mass mailings of any kind to the addresses you provide us, and in a like manner, we don’t accept credit cards or ship COD. Please keep in mind that we are a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation and any donation you make is tax deductible!
You can request crosses through this website, by completing this form. Or, if you prefer, you can call us direct with your needs at 320.699.8168 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to stop by our distribution center and pick up your crosses, you are always welcome to do so. Just give us a call to set up a time.
‘But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.’
