OUR
MINISTRIES

We can do more together. One of the core purposes of River Crossing is to help those in need.  Our heart is for all people.

 

Our mission is to impact our village by sharing God's love by actively ministering to our fellow neighbors. We work with other local and state organizations with the aim of providing a much needed resource for people in our community.

"Truly, He taught us to love one another."

It is a profound privilege to give to others, just as God has given richly towards us. Join us as we work to make an impact in the Ruidoso community and beyond.

Finding ways for our lives to intersect, we know we can do more together.

Volunteers Packing Food
Food Ministry

Our church is committed to combating hunger in our community through our dedicated food ministry. We proudly operate a well-stocked pantry, thanks to our partnerships with Walmart, Albertson's, and Road Runner Food, where we rescue perfectly safe-to-eat food that would otherwise be discarded. We provide food boxes to anyone in need throughout the week, ensuring that no one in our community goes hungry. Additionally, our ministry hosts a monthly drive-through food giveaway, offering a convenient and dignified way for individuals and families to receive the nourishment they need. This ministry is a cornerstone of our church's mission to serve and support those around us.

Living Well Cafe

At our church, we proudly present the 'Living Well' cafe, a unique and welcoming space inspired by the philosophy of Food For Soul, which recognizes that 'food waste and food insecurity are two sides of the same coin.' Currently, our cafe offers complimentary coffee and light fare one day per week, embodying a spirit of generosity and community. Our goal is to be open up to five days per week in the near future. While donations are welcome, they are not required, as our primary aim is to provide a beautiful and inspiring setting where everyone feels included and valued. Living Well is more than just a cafe; it's a place of connection and nourishment for all, reflecting our commitment to addressing food insecurity and reducing waste in a meaningful way.

Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.-Galatians 6:2 

 

Our church is deeply committed to offering a helping hand through our transformational housing ministry, a sanctuary for those seeking a safe and well-maintained home on their journey towards stability and independence. In line with the spirit of compassion and support, we provide discounted housing options for individuals and families who are on the path to getting back on their feet. This ministry is a tangible expression of our belief in restoration and new beginnings. Here, we don’t just offer shelter; we offer hope and a foundation for a brighter future.
