Our Ministries

Food Ministry


Working with Eden Gives (formerly Mercyworks International), twice a month we pick up fresh grocery and distribute them among those who could use some help with food. This is a great way to share God's blessings with others. 

If you or your friends  would like to volunteer or receive food, please contact the organizers.

Friday Night Pancakes

Out of our love for students,  pancakes are served at Cross and Resurrection by student volunteers every Friday night from 10 PM till 1 AM.  This is a great time to come and get something to eat on a Friday night, especially if you have run out of meals on your meal plan for the week. It is also a great time to meet new people and socialize in a safe environment. We provide games to play.  This is an outstanding opportunity for your organization or you as an individual to acquire community service hours you may need. If you are interested in helping us to serve pancakes, please locate Hannah Schindel or Anna Major or Pastor Bryan during any night that pancakes are being served or email pancakes@crossandres.org with any questions you may have.

Oh yeah, we serve waffles, too!

Aging and Senior Care Community Resources in Ypsilanti.

Based on conversations with community leaders across the US, many aging adults are unaware of the available care options and programs that can help maintain their independence and quality of life. So we created a free resource that provides information on topics like financial support and care options that are available in Ypsilanti. What we are most excited about is our comprehensive database of senior living communities which also includes thoughtful and honest reviews from residents in your community.
