Jesus didn’t just tell us to love and serve. He showed us how through His own actions. He demonstrated for us, how to give life to others.
Serving at CrossRoads
We're so grateful that you're interested in serving with us here at CrossRoads Church! We're excited to have you join us. We believe that serving encourages us to enter in to God's story in ways that better help us love Him and those around us. It is also a great way to get connected into community! Below are a variety of ways for you to start serving.
Through serving, you have the opportunity to be a part of a team that can lead a child to a place where they understand Truth in the Big God Story to impact their world. Proverbs 22:6 says “...train up a child in the way s/he should go and when she/he is old she/he will not depart from it.”
Sr. High Ministries
We’d love people to come serve by making meals or snacks for students and leaders on Wednesday nights at 6:00pm. We also have miscellaneous projects around the youth centre for anyone who has a creative eye or is handy. Or, be a mentor to youth by joining our team of youth leaders. We partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters and have in-school mentors in the Dawe school for one hour per week. Please contact Youth@CrossRoadsChurch.ca for more information.
Welcome Teams Do you remember what is was like to walk into our building for the very first time? For some, it was pretty intimidating and a little scary - that’s why we need you. If you have a passion for helping make CrossRoads a place where everyone feels at home, please let us know. We would love to connect you with one of our Welcome Teams and get you serving today! Email Connect@CrossRoadsChurch.ca.
Special Events Team We’re always doing something exciting around here! And, as you know, special events take a lot of work and preparation. If you have been blessed with creativity, the ability to organize, and like to have fun, contact us today and we’ll get you in touch with our Special Events team. Email us at Connect@CrossRoadsChurch.ca.
At CrossRoads we care deeply for vulnerable youth and the single parent, both within our church body and in the local community. We feel called to offer spiritual and practical support to those who parent alone and to mentor youth.
CrossRoads is pleased to partner with local agencies that care for and support vulnerable youth and those who parent alone. These agencies have serve opportunities posted on their websites:
- Hope Mission
In-School. We have a presence in numerous local schools providing students and staff support by being reading buddies, one on one mentors and supporting breakfast programs. Donations of food and clothing are accepted at the church for students and servers are needed to sort, pack and deliver to schools.
Our Single Moms group meets monthly at the church and there is a need for childcare for little ones in the nursery and engagement with school age children through planned activities while the Mothers are attending.
Special events. At various times throughout the year there is a need for people to host our partners in the building and to serve in one time events that highlight our partners and community. These may involve physical labour, baking, manning a table etc.
Please email LaurieW@CrossRoadsChurch.ca for further information or to indicate your willingness to serve in any of these areas.
If you would like to help serve communion during the services, please contact Jenna at Communion@CrossRoadsChurch.ca.
Worship and Technical Arts
There is nothing better than worshiping our Father and His Son, Jesus together as a church body! The worship arts family is always looking for brothers and sisters to join us as musicians, vocalists and technicians. Worship happens all over the church on many days of the week – in CrossRoads Kids, at Celebrate Recovery, in youth ministries, and of course, during Sunday services. If you’re interested in getting involved in any area, we’d be so excited to have you join us on Thursday nights in the Worship Room at 7:00pm.
Musicians/Vocalists There are opportunities for keyboardists, drummers, guitarists of all kinds, vocalists of all ranges, and many other instrumentalists. Contact Pastor Dallas at DallasL@CrossRoadsChurch.ca for more information.
Technicians In the tech world, we’re looking for people to help out with sound (running front-of-house audio and monitors) and visual elements (cameras, video switching, directing, lights, or media). If you’re interested or want more information, contact Wally at WallyH@CrossRoadsChurch.ca.
Do you have a heart for groups and doing life together? Community Life is for you! There is always room for more groups whether that be a connecting group, study group, serving group, women’s group, men’s group, couples group, fitness group, prayer group, the options are endless! Contact us at CommunityLife@CrossRoadsChurch.ca to learn more about Facilitating a group.
