CrossPurpose is a nonprofit that was started by Providence to consolidate our efforts in the community in one place. We seek to abolish relational, economic, and spiritual poverty through career and community development. We moved from asking, "How do we help someone in poverty?" to "How do we get someone out of poverty?" To answer that question, we created our core program, UpRise, which takes adults on a 6 month journey to start new career paths, improve their financial situations and become self-sufficient.

KidCity is our childrens' ministry. We desire our kids to know, grow, and and show the love of Christ. Our loving volunteers lead the following classes:
-Nursery - birth-24 months
-Toddlers - 2-3 year olds
-Pre-K/Kindergarten - Preschoolers and Kindergarteners
Kids through preschool may go directly to their classes when our service begins. 1st-5th graders stay in the service with their families until a dismissal part-way through, and Kindergarteners may choose to join their class in the beginning or to stay in the service until dismissal. A volunteer will meet kids in the lobby when they are dismissed from service.
New Reality is our youth ministry. The youth and leaders meet together most Sundays after they are dismissed from the service. They have a wonderful time of engaging with the Word of God and with each other. New Reality also does fun outings and activities together!
