Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Crossroads Baptist Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Crossroads members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles, to preparing for church events.


Missions

Crossroads Baptist is thrilled to be part of the spread of God's kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. The missionaries supported by Crossroads Baptist Church members are located in many countries around the globe such as Africa, Mexico, Scotland and Greenland. Each year, we have our Annual Missions Conference where we host some of these missionaries and invite them to share what God has done through their work. We encourage all of our people to respond to God's call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.


Music & Drama

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music and drama ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. Still others get involved in drama through our annual Christmas play and other theatrical productions. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of Crossroads Baptist Church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.


Ushers & Greeters

The usher team at Crossroads fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. This team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.


Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of Crossroads Baptist Church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in audio format. We also maintain a Facebook page for additional church communication (see the link on the homepage).


Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Crossroads Baptist Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God's sovereignty. Throughout the week, volunteers to our Prayer Warriors team, pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs.


Children's Church

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, Crossroads Baptist holds a children's church service in conjunction with the main service. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children's church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons.


Bus Ministry

In order to provide our community with the convenience of transportation to and from church, Crossroads Baptist operates 3 vans charged with serving multiple locations throughout Fredericksburg. Our van drivers  have a true passion for reaching every child. Volunteers are always needed to clean vans, transport riders, service vehicles and substitute when our regular drivers are away. See the Bus Ministry page for more information.

 

Camp Counselors

Each summer, Crossroads Baptist Church travels to a location for our youth camp. The week-long event involves games, preaching, great food, good worship, and the intentional influence of camp counselors. The camp counselors are specially selected for this important camp ministry. They find that their ministry is personally rewarding, and both campers and counselors grow in the process.
