Crossroads Christian Church, in Washington Court House, will thank employees of Fayette County by providing meals as a way of giving back to the employees for their efforts in the community.

The second-annual “Shout Out to Court House” will be held this Friday with Crossroads volunteering its church members and time to serve employees of the county a meal. The day will begin in the morning with members of the church visiting the school districts around Fayette County.

“We are taking cinnamon rolls to all of the school teachers, workers, administrative staff, and bus garages for both schools of Miami Trace and Washington Court House as well as the Progressive School on Robinson Road,” Todd Maurer, Crossroads Christian Church preaching pastor said. “We are also preparing lunch to the courthouse lawn from 11:30 to 1 p.m. this Friday.”

Maurer said that the purpose of the “Shout Out” is to say “thank you” to all of the businesses for serving the community. He said that this is just a way to reach out to them and say thanks for all of the work they do and thanks for the services they provide to us.

“Crossroads just wants to reach out and say ‘Hey thank you, have lunch on us,” Maurer said. “If they are unable to come and eat there, they can come and pick up meals with carryout boxes to take back to their offices.”

The meal includes hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, a bakery cookie, as well as soft drinks or bottled water. Maurer said that the meal is absolutely free, and reiterated how they really want to show their appreciation for the area businesses.

“Our mission is to reach out to the community and this our opportunity to do that,” Maurer said. “You guys provide great services for everyone in this community. While you provide a service every day, someone needs to provide a service to you. So we just want you to have lunch on us, enjoy a good meal and have some great fellowship.”

Crossroads Christian Church began 145 years ago under a different name. Five years ago, the church moved to its current location on State Route 41 with a larger building and more congregation. Currently, the youth minister is Caleb Baumgardner, the children’s minister is Tanner Goss, the worship leader is Beth Stinson and the secretary is Emili Barnhart.
