Our Ministries

Food Ministry

null

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 Patrick Tincher during any night that pancakes are being served or email ptincher@crossandres.org with any questions you may have.

Oh yeah, we serve waffles, too!
