One of the actions that gives our lives significance and satisfaction is knowing that what we do is a part of something much larger than ourselves. Everyone! Yes! Every one of us has a talent or skill to offer. By donating your talent to volunteer and lead you are advancing our shared vision for everyday peacemaking.
There is a volunteer opportunity whether you have a few hours to serve each year or a few hours each week. This is one of the very best ways to get to know people at Crossroads and in the community. Many of the opportunities involve engaging the larger community and not just with the Crossroads people.
