Providing : Love Hope Purpose
At last… a place dedicated to volunteer news, views and information. A place just for you! Thank you for your continued commitment to Crossroads Ministries and the elderly we serve in the care centers. Because of your continued visits, Bible studies and prayers, lives continue to be added to the kingdom of God. We couldn’t do it without you!
A Word from Kay
I would like to take this opportunity to thank each of you for the love and sacrifice that you pour into the residents of the care centers. You are amazing!! We hear such good reports about the relationships that you ae building with the residents and the staff.
We love to hear about what you are doing, so please send us your reports along with stories and interesting things that occur in the care centers. You have blessed so many people this year. I know it is a sacrifice on your part to visit them and to share the love of Christ but I want you to know that it does not go unnoticed. Thanks to you again from the bottom of my heart for all that you do!!!
Please let us know if you would like additional training in certain areas and we will get them on the schedule. I would like to have more get togethers during the year with all of you, so let’s make that happen!
Several summer events are planned so keep your eyes and ears open for information coming your way. As soon as dates are scheduled we will let you know. We hope that you can get involved!
Meet Crossroads’ Volunteer Coordinator
My name is Kristi Hagan and I am the Volunteer Coordinator for Crossroads Ministries as well as Kay’s Office Manager. I have been with Crossroads for a year and a half and love it! I’m a Colorado native and former Air Force brat. I have been with my husband for 11 years and have two Shih Tzu’s. I love to cook, read, try new restaurants, go to the dog park and hang out with my husband.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me any time. My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call (719) 635-5767. Please keep those reports coming! They’re so important and give me and Kay valuable insight.
Volunteer Recognition and Appreciation
Crossroads is so grateful and appreciative of all volunteers. You go above and beyond and it’s such a blessing to the residents. We always read reports and love to see how you’ve blessed the residents and what sorts of things you do for them. While reading the most recent reports we noticed that Tom and Paula Kelly blessed the residents in February by having tea and cookies and giving them a mug for Valentine’s Day! Paula also gifted the residents with a handmade picture. Thank you, Tom and Paula, for giving from the heart.
This section is dedicated to recognizing our volunteer’s efforts and ways they bless the residents. Stay tuned because we may feature you next!
We would like to thank our chaplains for the memorial services that have been performed in the past couple of months. We’d also like to recognize Patrick Corrigan conducting a memorial service at Parkmoor and Life Care Center in Pueblo. Patrick has also been involved with teaching our current chaplaincy students the details and care involved with memorial services. We’re so thankful to Patrick for all that he does!
