Love Through Service

Love Thru Service

Hello Crestwood Family and Newcomers:

At Crestwood Christian our mission, purpose and heartfelt drive is to focus on the first and second commandments of God: the fist “To love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.  This is the first and great Commandment.  And the second “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”  Matthew 22:37-38    We place our focus on (1) teaching God’s scriptures and (2) serving the needs of the poor. We are an “All BondServant” church (which means no one gets paid a salary) and all funds pay first the rent and the entire balance to Love thru Service to care for those in need.

Love Thru Service is the ministry of Crestwood that cares for the poor whether they are within the church or outside of the church.  We live in a time where so many have many worries, loss of work, tragedies, and burdens that keep them from having a life of hope.  Many of our poor in this 2010-decade are made up of families with young children, a drastic increase from previous years we are not use to dealing with.

To belong to Crestwood is to believe and desire to live as commanded which means we are to love our neighbor which includes taking care of our neighbor. It is exciting  and fulfilling when we get involved in other people’s lives and see the changes that happen.

See the light of Jesus to shine through you.  Not by what you say, but by what He does through you.

What is more important than a life saved?

Currently we partner with the following organizations in addition to our Crestwood family.  Each do an amazing job of social work and screening with the people in need  before they come to us for financial assistance, request for goods, or volunteer help.  We discuss and confirm that each agency lines up with our mission and we proceed with Christ’s work.

Check out the Volunteer Center and pick up the individual Organization Volunteer Sheets for details of other volunteer opportunities with each organization.  Check the online calendar for scheduled Volunteer Opportunities with the family.
