To us, church isn't church unless our compassion spills beyond the walls of our weekend services, and that happens through something called For Our Neighbor.
There are so many ways to put your compassion to work and partner with us at CrossRoads to be the answer to someone's prayer.
For Our neighbor - four initiatives
Initiative # 1 - Adopt our Neighborhood School - The students, families, teachers and staff of our neighborhood elementary school have a variety of needs that regularly go unmet. We will adopt Washington Woods Elementary School and seek to be good neighbors to them, caring for them as Jesus would.
Initiative # 2 - Big Family Friendly Events - Most of our neighbors that live near CrossRoads do not know one another and with busy schedules have little opportunity to get to know each other in a safe, fun, and positive environment. At least three times a year CrossRoads will provide neighborhood events that will allow our neighbors to interact and build relationships with each other.
Initiative # 3 - Neighborhood Services - Neighbors help neighbors when they know there is a need. Many families in our neighborhood struggle with life in some rather significant ways. Some of them find their marriages hard, wrestle with addictions, worry about how to parent well, have legal questions they canʼt answer, are lonely and stress about maintaining their lifestyle and are in a constant state of worry. We will provide gathering where our neighbors can see help and guidance.
Initiative # 4 - Repair Homes - Some of our neighbors have home repair needs that go unmet which causes them great concern. It also may mean they will have to move out of their current home. As some of our neighbors age, they are unable to get in and out of their homes safely. Through a Group Work Camp, 50+ homes of our neighbors will be repaired. In seven short days, hundreds of teenagers from youth groups across the country repair and transform homes while growing closer to Jesus.
