Crosstown strives to serve all Christ-following churches in Las Cruces by organizing their resources of people, gift, and skills to meet the needs of the fatherless, single mom, and any others who are homeless, outcast, poor, and the strangers in our midst.
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. We recently hosted The Gathering for Generous Justice, where over 100 people from 20+ churches came to engage with ministry leaders in Las Cruces and The Borderlands.
Crosstown is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization serving the city of Las Cruces in Southern New Mexico.
