“If anyone has this world’s goods and sees his brother in need but closes his eyes to his need—how can God’s love reside in him? Little children, we must not love with word or speech, but with truth and action.” – 1 John 3:17-18
The Deacons of Crossroads Community Church are ministers of mercy who come alongside people who are in crisis or challenging circumstances and offer help in assessing needs and working to find solutions.
Deacons are responsible for:
- Administering benevolence with generosity and discretion.
- Mobilizing the congregation for works of justice and mercy both within and outside of the church.
- Cultivating compassion and mercy and promoting Biblical Stewardship within the congregation.
Some of the ways the Deacons help Crossroads members and regular attendees are:
- Assistance with bills (rent, utilities, medical, etc.)
- Assistance in finding temporary or long-term housing
- Assistance in paying for Counseling Services (or by providing free counseling through the pastoral staff)
- Assistance for those who are looking for employment
- Assistance with personal budgeting
- Prayer, spiritual guidance and accountability
- Emergency Food and Gas Gift Certificates
- Referrals to support services throughout the community and region
