As followers of Christ, we are called to love, encourage, support, pray, and care for one another. There are a number of ways we strive to do these things.
One of the ways we can care for each other is through our Congregational Care ministry, which comes alongside those in the Crossings family in seasons of sorrow, sickness and setbacks. This shows up in a number of ministries that are largely unseen, yet significant. These ministries range from hospital and shut-in visits, to financial help and counseling for those in hard times, to fellowship for the retired and elderly, to a committed prayer team who prays over requests submitted on Sundays and during the week. We also take joy in ministering to those who are grieving, joining them in their immediate sorrow and following up with them weeks, and sometimes months, after their loss.
Caring for the congregation is a value rooted in the church’s formative years. Because this value continues, many in the Crossings family feel the same sense of intimacy felt by those in the early years, when our church was much smaller.
Stephen Ministry provides distinctively Christian, one-to-one, gender specific, confidential care to those experiencing difficulties in their lives. Pastors will always be on the front lines of care, especially during times of crisis, but there are always many more needs for ongoing care than pastors can effectively meet by themselves. Stephen Ministry provides a biblical solution—equipping God’s people for ministry.
