COMMUNITY OUTREACH

WHO WE ARE

At Crossroads, we want to help people connect with God and others at the Crossroads of life. Our Community Outreach Ministry seeks to show the love of Christ to Sheboygan County and beyond. One of the ways we do this is by serving alongside local organizations that are working to meet the needs of the people in our community. Is God calling you to step out and meet a need, create a connection, or build a relationship with someone who needs to know and see Jesus? Join us in loving God by loving people! Where will you serve today?

"The Giving Tree is my favorite!
It's so cool to see people's faces
light up when you bless them during
the holiday season."

"Being part of the community cafe crew
helped me to see and understand
the needs of some of the
people in our community."

"The best part about bell ringing
was being able to sing songs about
Jesus to brighten people's
day and spread the love of God!"
