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. We welcome mission teams year round.
- The Lord’s Café (free restaurant ministry) provides free meals to the community and free groceries. During the school year, hot meals are prepared Tuesday and Thursday. Approximately 120 eat lunch each day. In the summer months, The Lord’s Café operated three days a week for lunch (Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. 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. On Wednesdays, community comes to receive free groceries. Between 5,000 and 10,000 pounds of food is given away to over 180 families. Team volunteers assist in unloading the trailer, setting up, assisting individuals with groceries, and clean up. The Lord’s Café operates completely by donation and volunteer help. This ministry proves God can still multiple food; The Lord’s Cafe began serving community on June 6, 2011.
