Express Love By Serving

We’re called to get outside the walls of the church building and do practical, tangible things in our community. Outreach teams do just that in our St. Louis area, in the name of Jesus. Serving others can be messy yet beautiful, practical and outrageously personal. And no special skills are required.

Serve Days


Spend a few hours getting your hands messy and your heart full. Tasks vary, but may include sorting, organizing, cleaning, painting, gardening, delivering items, small fix-it jobs, and more. We have serve days each month at these community partners:

Educational Outreach

Millions of American children get to fourth grade without learning to read proficiently, which puts them on the dropout track. We partner with educators to read with kids and adults on a regular basis. We also do behind-the-scenes projects to give teachers more time to teach. Let us know you're in to serve with our education partners:

Collection Events

We come together as one church a couple times each year to serve with our community partners. Everyone at The Crossing is invited to participate when we collect backpacks and school supplies in early August with Backpack Attack. In December we collect food and paper products for Give Food. Watch for donation info and serving opportunities in July and November.
