Help For Those In Need

The Crossroad's food bank (The Lord's Pantry), clothing bank (The Lord's Closet) and Free Hot Meal ( The Lord's Table) exists to support the body of Christ as well as the local community by providing food and clothing staples. We desire to help those who are struggling making ends meet and to help provide them with a loving, caring service that will allow them to move toward self sufficiency. We feel called to show the love of
 Christ by serving others and supporting them in their time of need.
This ministry runs weekly on Saturday at Crossroad's throughout the year, with the exception that there will be Saturdays that we are not open, due to other events happening at the church. The clothing bank also holds special give away events seasonally throughout the year (Prom, Halloween, Winter Clothing, Summer wear, Christmas gifts).  All are welcome.
