About the E-Team

If you have served Crossroad in any areas, you are a member of the E-Team! Robin McCullough-Bade of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America defines E-Team member tasks as:

 Evangelism Team Job description:

  • Become an ambassador of Christ, Sunday through Saturday
  • Share the good news of Jesus Christ during one-to-one conversations in daily life
  • Invite family, friends and acquaintances to learn more about God’s love
  • Invite people to join your congregation for worship, study, fellowship, and service
  • Witness to Jesus by living a compassionate, gracious and loving life
  • Welcome guests who come to church activities
  • Encourage each other to grow in faith

Wait a minute! Doesn't that sound like the calling of every follower of Jesus? Each of us is called to be a witness to Jesus Christ. Absolutely!

 Jesus said, “You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)

 The church cannot afford to allow a few to be the entire Evangelism Team. That is not what Jesus Christ had in mind when he commanded us to be his witnesses."

God's Garden

Crossroad has grown and donated over a TON of fresh, free produce to the Green Cove Springs Food Pantry! 

Come see what God is growing in his fall garden to feed and strengthen food insecure residents of Clay County. 

"What blessing for our volunteers at the Food Pantry to give out fresh harvested vegetables. We try to make sure that the food we give is well balanced to the best of our ability. Adding fresh picked vegetables helps the Pantry in our mission to provide a well balance meal. This is a beautiful ministry Crossroads (sic) has started."
