We value not just growing in our faith but doing something with our faith! Serving within the walls of this church and (even more importantly) going out into the community and the world is a vital part of what God created us to do.
Use your gifts and talents at Crossview! We are all wired in a unique way to serve. Let us know what areas you might be interested in hearing more about.
Some of the places you can serve at Crossview:
God has called us to reach out to people who don't yet know Him - not just around the world, but in our own community as well. Below are a couple of organizations that we partner with to spread the good news of Christ's love in the greater Mankato area.
Gentle Shepherd Ministries (GSM)
GSM ministers to seniors in care facilities and inmates in county jails throughout south-central Minnesota. They are currently providing Bible studies, worship services, mentoring and more in nine senior care facilities and three jails. For volunteer opportunities, please call 507-327-1480.
PACT (People And Christ Together)
PACT Ministries has two goals: providing food and clothing for people in need. They accomplish those goals by hosting a monthly Food For All program (on the second Saturday of each month) and providing low cost goods at the Neighborhood Thrift Store, located on Hwy 169 in North Mankato, next to the Days Inn. For volunteer opportunities at the Thrift Store or with the Food For All programs, please call 507-625-7228.
All across the world you will find believers caring for the sick, fighting injustice and spreading the gospel. We believe in sending people into the world to make a difference.
Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)
In 2013, the Democratic Republic of Congo was named both the poorest country in the world (IMF World Economic Outlook) and the worst place to be a mother (Save the Children). One in five children dies before their fifth birthday, many of whom could have been saved with proper medical treatment that we in the US take for granted. Organizations like Covenant Kids Congo and The Paul Carlson Partnership are coming alongside our Congolese brothers and sisters in Christ and help bring sustainable, long-term solutions to the most over-looked province in the neediest country of the world. Learn more at paulcarlson.org and www.covenantkidscongo.org.
Team World Vision
Every day, over 1,600 children under the age of five die from diseases caused by unsafe drinking water. We believe that every child deserves clean water! By running one of the Mankato Marathon with Team World Vision - Crossview, and sharing your experience to help raise funds for World Vision's water projects in Africa, you can help bring life-changing clean water to children!
