Disaster Relief

This page will be updated frequently as new information becomes available.

When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” —Mr. Rogers
Crossroads has always responded when our neighbors need help; it’s what loving our neighbor means. Love is not sentiment. It’s service.

The recent Marshall Fire has wreaked havoc on our friends and neighbors in Louisville and Superior. We are in conversations with Boulder County church and community leaders who will keep us informed about what is most needed. Crossroads will provide disaster relief support in the following ways:

  • Direct support for Crossroads families who are impacted. This includes supporting the efforts of Crossroads members who are pursuing other avenues toward disaster relief.
  • Support Ascent Community Church in Louisville, a sister church to Crossroads. Lead Pastor Bill Stephens lost his home in the fire. Additionally, the ACC building is intact but unusable pending further cleaning and repairs. We have committed to come alongside the leaders and people of this church to help in ways that they identify and request.

Practical ways you can help now:
