2021 was a year of regathering for our church. Celebrating Easter in person felt like we had reached a benchmark indicating that the Crossroads community had weathered a brutal winter, but spring was on the horizon. We rediscovered and reclaimed some of our familiar rhythms of worship and community. But, most importantly, we regained our footing in our mission of helping others follow Jesus a way of life.

In 2021, contributions by Crossroads' members totaled $914,732.51. Because of your commitment and generosity, Crossroads continued to make a difference in our community by spreading the Gospel. 

Here are just a few highlights of how your giving impacted the Kingdom in the past year:

  • We held 13 baptisms.
  • We helped feed 210 families in our area by partnering with Second Harvest.
  • We continued our support of Front Porch, a church plant in inner-city Baltimore, giving them a total of $8500. In addition, we collected backpacks and school supplies for Govans Elementary, a school that Front Porch supports.
  • We raised over $1,400 for Agape Women's Ministry through their Baby Bottle Fundraiser.
  • Crossroads sponsored a giving tree in Founders Park, where we gave away over 943 pairs of socks and gloves over the holidays.
  • Each month Loaves and Fishes teams from Crossroads, made up of over 120 difference makers, prepare and serve food to hundreds of people at West Main Christian Church.
  • Teams from Crossroads serve with Meals on Wheels delivering food to homebound individuals in Gray every Wednesday.
  • This past year marked the 20th Anniversary of Crossroads. As an act of thanksgiving and gratefulness to God, our congregation worshiped by serving our community on a Sunday. In two short hours, our church members painted one playground, packed 300 food bags, made 240 backpacks meals for kids, resealed 7 seven picnic tables, decorated the Isaiah 117 House for Christmas, prepped two meals for the Campus House at ETSU to feed students, deep-cleaned One Acre Cafe, sealed 7 picnic tables, packed over 100 Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes, cleaned and painted Salvation Army kettles & stands, and raked over a million leaves (we did not count, just a perceived estimate!)

Your faithful giving made all of this possible, in addition to the ministry we've been able to do within the walls of Crossroads. We are so grateful for your support and cannot wait to see what God does through us in 2022.
