Crosstown strives to serve the Congregations of Christ the LORD in Las Cruces by organizing our resources of people, gifts and grace, skills and abilities to meet the needs of the fatherless, single mom, the homeless child, the outcast, the poor, and the stranger.
What do we do?
Sometimes, churches have a lot of interest and energy to serve, but they don’t know where to start. In response to this, Crosstown pilots ministry programs and invites churches to join us, desiring for member churches to eventually take them over from us.
No more let sin and sorrows roam,
Nor thorns infest the ground,
He comes to make his blessings known,
Far as the curse is found…
Jesus has defeated both sin and death–hallelujah! He is now making all things new, both spiritual and physical. While he is away from earth, he has given this work over to The Church. Crosstown provides tools for churches to get to know themselves and their neighborhoods better, propelling each church into wisely designed, heartful service.
24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. – Hebrews 10:24-25
A healthy Church will be, among other things, a great servant to Her city. Therefore, Crosstown offers opportunities for individual pastoral counseling as well as group learning. If this is something you crave, you are invited to our Gathering for Generous Justice in January, 2017! (click for more information)
