“Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?” And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” (Matthew 25: 37-40)
Crossroads of Michigan is a social services agency that provides counseling services, transportation assistance, food and clothing to people in need in the Detroit area. Crossroads of Michigan has two offices, one in Detroit and an East Side office at 21230 Moross Rd. For many years Christ Church Grosse Pointe has provided financial support for Crossroads and its mission. The Soup Kitchen enables many of us to get involved directly. It is a wonderful opportunity for us to come together as a team and act on our Christian values. We are always looking for new volunteers.
Serve at the soup kitchen. Crossroads' biggest outreach program is a soup kitchen that serves between 600 and 700 people every Sunday. Three times a year Christ Church Grosse Pointe is responsible for cooking and serving those meals at the Crossroads main office at 2424 West Grand Boulevard.
We buy all the supplies. Volunteers on the morning shift cook a huge pot of chili, put together hundreds of sandwiches and get everything ready. The afternoon shift serves the meal and cleans up afterwards. Approximately 25 people are needed for each shift. Next opportunity to serve is November 13, 2016. Please mark your calendars!
Donate food. Christ Church serves as a collection site for Crossroads of Michigan. Non-perishable foods may be dropped off in our lobby collection baskets and will be delivered regularly to Crossroads of Michigan. To volunteer as delivery team member, or for more information, please contact the Rev'd Areeta Bridgemohan, 313-885-4841 ext 121, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information, contact Rev. Areeta Bridgemohan at 313-885-4841, ext. 121.
