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 into God's story in ways that better help us love Him and those around us. It is also a great way to get connected to the community! Below are a variety of ways for you to start serving.
Crossroads kids early childhood
Through serving, you have the opportunity to be a part of a team that shares, with every child, our 3 basic truths:
1. God made me.
2. God loves Me
3. Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
“And the child grew and became strong, He was filled with wisdom and the grace of God was on him” Luke 2:40
CrossRoads Kids K-6
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 s/he is old s/he will not depart from it.”
Our students are hungry to witness, experience and learn from those who have gone before them; in our mess, our faith in Jesus and in community. Our students are desperate for men and women who can guide them towards Jesus in community, in teaching and in action. We serve over 100 students each week, and we believe adding one more Serve, like you, gives one more student an opportunity to meet Jesus, grow in Jesus and impact their home, friends, and schools for Jesus.
Welcome Teams Would you like to join us serving once a month (AM or PM services)? You don't need experience and you don't need any fancy skills - you just need a willingness for God to work through you. If God is nudging you to come join our amazing community of servers... sign up today! We'd love to get you involved by emailing: Connect@CrossRoadsChurch.ca.
Special Events Team It's fun to join a group of people and decorate the facility, prepare food, register or clean up after the event. If you'd enjoy serving in this capacity we can provide you with various opportunities for you to put your skills and enthusiasm to work! Feel free to email: 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 service 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.
