CrossPoint’s Family Ministry 


“Connecting the church and home to create fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.”

North American Mission Board 
Atlanta Ministry Center
Friday, October 25-Sunday, October 27
Clarkston, GA
$70 per person, must be 14 years or older to participate. 


Just outside Atlanta, the city of Clarkston—affectionately called “the Ellis Island of the South”—is home to one of the most diverse populations in America. In Clarkston, 60-70% of the population is foreign-born, resulting in more than 50 countries and 100 ethnic groups all residing within the same 1.4 square miles. The Atlanta Ministry Center is committed to serving the surrounding refugee population. By partnering with various resettlement agencies, local churches and volunteers, the ministry center: facilitates English as a Second Language classes, organizes after-school programming, offers job skills training and provides affordable healthcare. The Atlanta Mission Trip will include various forms of community outreach in the Clarkston and Atlanta areas. Teams may participate in activities such as apartment outreach, food pantry ministry, after-school programs, sports ministry, canvassing, prayer walking, homeless ministry, physical labor, serving at-risk families, and university campus ministry.

About one-third of the trip will also include aspects of training and equipping so volunteers can learn how to serve the international and refugee community better.


When: August 30-September 2

Guidelight Retreat is a retreat for families who have a relative with a disability. At Guidelight Retreats, we step into the midst of this chaos, providing families with an intimate escape. We meticulously tailor every aspect of the weekend to address the unique needs of families affected by disability, offering refreshment and renewal.

This retreat requires a dedicated team to meet the various needs of the families. We would like to encourage you to fill out the interest form for you or your family, even if you are unsure how you can best fit in. Our Guidelight team will review the interest requests and determine our needs.
