Our church's RiverCross Mission, located at 211 Main Street, serves as the hub for our Community Outreach work. A lot goes on here, and together we're discovering what it means to belong to Christ and know his love. We now have a RiverCross Mission Facebook group to help us stay connected. Moms on a Mission meets at the Forbes Drive location on the second Wednesday of each month.
People come to the Mission to experience community together through prayer and worship, coffee and friendship, the meeting of basic needs, and fellowship around a hot meal. The Hope Mission meets in-person each Thursday, beginning at 10 and ending with a meal meal at noon. Covid-19 precautions such as social distancing and masks are still in place.
The North End Food Bank, located in the RiverCross Mission building, partners with us on Tuesday mornings, creating a friendly, one-stop experience for anyone who shows up.
RiverCross's Community Outreach work is also invested in bringing broader community renewal in Saint John's North End and Crescent Valley through a wide range of partnership projects.
Our primary partner in all this is the ONE Change. This is a local coalition of residents and professionals, that has been working together for over a decade now. Through its efforts, there have been improvements in housing, access to health services, and education and training.
