Go Make A Difference

At Crosswalk, we believe that when God speaks to and provides for us, we respond by sharing those gifts with our community. The grace that we have received enables us to make a difference in our world. Come make a difference with us, both near and far, big and small.


Crosswalk members serve weekly as tutors, mentors and helpers in the classrooms. Members support students in need with backpacks and school supplies at the start of the school year. In addition, assistance is provided to families at Thanksgiving with food; and at Christmas with gifts for families. Support to, and appreciation of, the staff is provided throughout the school year.



The DRC in Jessup, MD provides various services to the homeless in Howard County. Crosswalk members serve monthly at the DRC by driving clients to the Center; and by preparing and serving a meal. Additional opportunities to support the Center exist throughout the year.


Elizabeth House serves the homeless in the Laurel/Howard County area by providing an evening meal and bag lunch 365 days a year. On the second Saturday of each month, Crosswalk members prepare an evening meal and 45 bag lunches. On the fourth Monday members assist in serving a meal and distributing bagged lunches. Additional opportunities to support EH exists throughout the year.



In July 2012, 11 people from the Crosswalk family (it was Our Shepherd at the time), traveled to Panama City, Panama, to participate in the ministries of the Lutheran Hour Ministries in Panama. We joined them as they shared the gospel message with children in their schools and with children at a hospital. Since that time we have been able to partner with them by buying puppets and a stage they use for their ministries and sending support to help them share God's word with people in Panama.

Support our ministries

It takes more than our time to support those in our community. Your financial support is greatly appreciated to continue helping our neighbors throughout the Baltimore and Washington areas.
