Portland Rescue Mission
We have developed a relationship with the Portland Rescue mission over the past couple of years. It has been a blessing to take part in their mission of reaching the homeless and inviting them into a transforming relationship with Jesus Christ. Currently we serve monthly at the Harbor (men’s transitional home) and have formed a great relationship with the them. The staff and participants at the PRM have been a huge blessing to us here at the church.
On the third Friday of each month we send a team (8-15 people) from Crossroads to serve at the Harbor. The team prepares and serves dinner followed by a time to play board games and share life together. This has been a great service opportunity and a huge blessing to each person who has served. We meet at 4:45 p.m. at Crossroads and drive over to the Harbor together. We are usually back to the church between 8 & 8:30 p.m. We would love to have you join us to serve on a Friday.
The Harbor, formerly known as Next Step, is where men engage in Portland Rescue Mission’s New Life Ministry which focuses on addictions recovery, spiritual renewal and life skills, including counseling, education and vocational training. With the Harbor being located less than a mile from Crossroads we he have had the opportunity to partner together with them on several occasions. As part of our Christmas focus this last year we raised money and gave several gifts to the Harbor including a large portable fire pit. Since then we have had a couple evenings where we gathered together with them around the fire, made s’mores and had a time of sharing about how Jesus has transformed our lives.
