Proclaiming Jesus Christ in Word and Deed

Outreach Ministries

We have many opportunities to serve others throughout the year and through various groups.

United Methodist Neighborhood Centers 

For over a century, United Methodist Neighborhood Centers of Memphis, Inc. (UMNC) has been feeding, caring for and empowering the “overlooked or ignored” of Shelby County.  CrossRoads Church has had a long history of supporting the ministry of UMNC.  The United Methodist Women and especially the Key Women are the back bone of our support of the United Methodist Neighborhood Centers (UMNC).  They organize our collection efforts and deliver the collected items to the Centers.  We support UMNC with contributions to the UMNC food pantry the first Sunday of each month.  We also prepare Thanksgiving food baskets each year.    At Christmas, we collect toys for the UNMC toy store.  Many of our church members have served or are serving on the Board of Directors.  Learn more about the mission and ministry of UMNC here.

Capleville Food Pantry 

We support the Capleville UMC Food Pantry with monetary donations the fifth Sunday of the month.   The food pantry serves those in the 38125 & 38141 zip codes.  The pantry is open on Tuesdays from 11:00 to 1:00.   They operate under the guidelines of the Memphis Food Bank with assistance from St. Marks and CrossRoads United Methodist Churches.

CrossRoads United Methodist Church supports FirstWorks @ the Corners.  We are Kitchen Angels which means we bring a home cooked meal to the children, teachers and volunteers on the First Thursday of every month.  FirstWorks is an out-reach ministry to children and families who live in the Highland and Summer area.  The kids come to FW on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 PM – 8 PM. When they arrive they eat dinner and at 6:30 PM they go to their classrooms where they are tutored in reading, writing and math or they receive help with their homework.  FirstWorks has existed for almost 30 years and has many partnerships:  Junior League, CrossRoads UMC, Germantown UMC, First UMC, St. Peter’s Catholic, Fellowship Baptist Church, St. Agnes KEY club, Christ UMC, Munford UMC Youth and many more.  If you would like to know more about FirstWorks please contact Pastor Birgitte phone 737-3776 or email btfrench@crossroadsumc

Cub Scout Pack 37

"Building tomorrow's leaders, one boy at a time."

Pack 37 serves the Greater Memphis area by nurturing boys in grades 1st - 5th. Activities include community service, camping, crafts, and the signature "Pinewood Derby." Each year, the Pack 37 goal is to introduce the boys to something they have never done. By learning to practice and internalize the principles of scouting, Pack 37 cub scouts learn leadership qualities and become stewards of the outdoors.

When: Pack 37 generally meets 2 Fridays a month at 6:30 pm.

Where: In the gym at Crossroads United Methodist Church.

For more information, contact the Cubmaster, Brad Robinson, at 901.205.9792.
