The third leg of our mission is vital to our vision of being a community church. You might not realize it, but as many as 1 in 5 Norwalk residents live near or below the poverty line.
What is our response? God's word is clear:
‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
At Crossroads, we take seriously our vision to serve by helping the less fortunate in our community. For example, we collect hundreds of pounds of food each year for the Norwalk Food Pantry, which provides food staples and other necessities to the hungry in our area. We work in conjunction with the Iowa Food Bank to help feed hungry children in our school system. We partner with the A.C.T.S. Network to provide coats, hats, gloves and boots for children in the wintertime. These efforts are to name just a few.
Service is also needed within our own congregation. A building of this size sitting on 20 acres needs the love and care of many volunteers to maintain. Food needs to be prepared and served. Worship and technology teams need passionate, competent volunteers. Those who are hospitalized need love and care. The list goes on and on – it truly takes a village.
