SERVE Neighbors 2024

For Our Neighbors....Ways you can serve our local neighbors

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. We provide free athletic shoes and a weeks worth of food on their fall, winter, and spring breaks to 15+ families.

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. The three are Pizza and Punchlines Comedy night, our Fall Fest and Chili Cook-off, and PopCorn and Punchlines Comedy Showcase.

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 wrestle with addictions, worry about how to parent well, are lonely and stress about maintaining their lifestyle, are out of shape, find it hard to feed their pets, and are in a constant state of worry. Pet food, Celebrate Recovery, Zumba, gatherings for senior adults, coats, food, and home repairs are just a few of the ways we care for our local neighbors.

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 may not be able to remain in their homes. We will provide wheelchair ramps, porches, mobile home skirting, and interior and exterior painting for our senior adults and veterans.
