Serve With Us!

For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...
Mark 10:45
Below are all the opportunities we have at Crossroads to serve:

Care Portal

CarePortal is a part of the Global Orphan project that is making and impact on our local area.. There are a couple ways you can get involved with local foster kids and families through CarePortal.

 
1.  CarePortal is a connecting agency for social workers and foster families. A foster family or social worker may be in need of something like a bed for a kid so they will put in a request with CarPortal and CarePortal will in turn send the request out to all local churches that are signed up. Then your church will send an email out to all people who are participating. If you have an extra or would like to buy what is needed then you answer the email .
  2.  You can sign up and be trained for Police Protective Care (PPC). PPC is housing a kid that has been removed by the police from their home and in need of somewhere to stay until the court makes a decision to send them home or to place them in foster care. This is usually about 3 days.

  If either of these options interests you please click on the link below and fill out the form. Thank you.

Riverton Mentor Program

The Health &  Wellness Advocates of Cherokee Co. have set up a mentorship program with the Riverton Elementary for kids who need a mentor in their life.  You can go read a book or have lunch with them. You will need to do a background check. For more information and to sign up click on the link.

Watered Gardens

On the 3rd Sunday of each month Michelle Autry leads a team serving breakfast at Watered Gardens. You can help two different ways. You can either volunteer your time and help her serve or give financial support. To volunteer or find out more info please fill out the volunteer form, and Michelle will reach out to you!
Volunteers begin by meeting at 10:00 am at the Community Building located at 4th and West Avenue in Baxter Springs. As soon as the Area on Aging van arrives, coolers are transferred to the local van the volunteers will be serving from. Drivers are provided and volunteers are passengers only. (No driving responsibilities)

Each day one volunteer ( the Helper) sits in the back of the van and places packaged food items from coolers into a container to be carried by the other volunteer (the runner) from the van to the homes of those receiving the meals.

Delivery times vary with the number of meals delivered (typically 30-36). Under normal circumstances, volunteers should plan on a two hour commitment.

If you would like to serve our community in this way or would like more information please fill out the volunteer form and Vincent Brannon will reach out to you!
