Local Outreach

Local Outreach

Crossings strategically leads and partners with ministries that care for our community. Crossings Local Outreach exists to equip people to demonstrate the love and compassion of Jesus to a broken, hurting community. We believe the key to transforming lives for Jesus is through the context of the relationships we build in our neighborhoods.

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Ephesians 2:10)

Crossings-Led Ministries & Initiatives

These ministries have been strategically developed, led, and funded through the Missions & Outreach Ministry of Crossings Community Church.

The mission of Crossings Community Center is to humbly proclaim the message of Jesus by meeting the physical and spiritual needs of those in our community. We strive to partner with those in surrounding neighborhoods to build a more spiritually, physically, and relationally healthy community.

The mission of Crossings Community Clinic is to humbly proclaim the message of Jesus by serving the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the uninsured. The scope of Clinic services includes medical, dental, and vision healthcare provided by clinic staff, licensed professional volunteers, and other dedicated volunteers.
