Crossroads is a church without a box. We welcome teams with various skills to meet the spiritual needs while meeting the physical needs of those in the area. Teams assist with evangelism and outreach.
1. The Lord’s Café (free restaurant ministry) provides free meals to the community and free groceries. During the school year, hot meals are prepared Monday and Friday; the grocery giveaway is held on Wednesday. Approximately 120 eat lunch each day and over 100 families receive free groceries each week. In the summer months, The Lord’s Café operated four days a week for lunch and Wednesday for grocery giveaway. In the summer, as many as 250 lunches are served each day. Teams assist with preparing the meal, cleaning, serving as wait staff, bus station and dishwashers, and more. The Lord’s Café operates completely by donation and volunteer help. This ministry proves God can still multiple food.
2. Teams assist local faith family with ongoing outreach ministries to children in the area through The Learning Center. During the school year, Kidz Korner provides after school activities for elementary school age. In the summer, Day Camp operates all day Monday through Thursday. Teams assist in teaching, worship, recreation, and crafts. We provide the curriculum for the lessons and lunch for the children. We also have a summer staff to facility the administrative duties.
3. Construction teams are needed for tiny home construction (The Light Community) and facility updates and repair. All skill levels needed.
4. Teams participate in laundry ministry, adult day care, block parties, hair and nail salon, sports camps, clothing ministry and other outreach projects.
5. Other opportunities are available.
