To us, the church isn't church unless our compassion spills beyond the walls of our weekend services, which happens through something called For Our Neighbor. There are many ways to put your compassion to work, and partner with us at CrossRoads to answer someone's prayer.
FOR OUR NEIGHBOR - FOUR INITIATIVES
Initiative # 1 - Adopt our Neighborhood School - Our neighborhood elementary school's students, families, teachers, and staff have various 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 allowing 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 can't answer, are lonely and stressed about maintaining their lifestyle, and are constantly worried. We will provide gatherings where our neighbors can see help and guidance.
Initiative # 4 - Repair Homes - Some of our neighbors have unmet home repair needs, 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 cannot get in and out of their homes safely. Through a Group Work Camp, 30+ 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.
Thank you for serving our neighbors!
We love serving our neighbors. We love meeting and getting to know them. And through every contact, we hope that Jesus becomes real to them through our actions and love. From 2017-2021, we have made over 28,000 impacts with our local neighbors; that is 28,000+ opportunities that we have had to impact a local neighbor, so they might know Jesus.
