Who We Are
Crossroads has been in Lima, Ohio for 100+ years! We have a history of serving the community, seeking to be a transformative agent. Through the years, we have met in a storefront and in small church buildings before settling into our current location at 775 S. Thayer Rd.
We are a community simply enthralled with Jesus. We believe that Jesus contains all of the treasures of wisdom and knowledge and we are committed to learn from him as our Lord.
Sundays @ 9:00am & 10:45am
Our gatherings typically last a little over an hour and have a friendly and informal atmosphere. Worship is interactive; we do not gather to simply be inspired or entertained, but to unite as a body to raise our voices and hands, kneel and pray, and sit in silence before God. Music is led by a full band that plays a blend of contemporary and traditional Christian songs.
If you are a first-time visitor, we invite you to stop by our Welcome Area, where we have a small gift for you. We also have a Connection Table where you can see what's going on at Crossroads, and a Free Coffee Bar where we serve coffee, juice, fruit and donuts.
You are welcome here.
In the very front of our parking lot, we have spaces reserved for new people. Feel free to use those! You will be greeted by our greeting team as you enter our doors. The coffee and refreshments in the lobby are free - make sure you grab a sleeve for your coffee, we keep it hot!
Our Sunday services are at 9am and 10:45am (a shift from 10:30am), both are identical in content. We have no dress code, so feel free to just be you! We sing a mixture of contemporary worship and traditional worship. With the pandemic, we had to make some changes for our kids, hospitality, and greeting. Check out our changes for the summer. Our sermons generally last around 35 minutes. If you would like to hear one, go to our sermons page or find our podcast!
We love our kids!
We are openly a family-oriented church. We value our kids and we humbly hold ourselves to a high standard for their spiritual development. When you walk in our doors, you'll see a bright red hallway with "Crossroads Kids" painted across it. That will lead you to our kids check-in. We ususally have kids programming during both services, and middle school students during the second service, but right now, we're only inviting kindergarden and younger to go outside and play during the message. Our kids classrooms are quiet rooms if you need to change a diaper or feed your child, and we have tables in the back of the Worship Center for our families to use for their kids.
Our pastors are very approachable. After the sermon, they'll end with announcements and an invitation to meet! They are very eager to meet you and get to know you! On your way out, stop by our welcome table in the lobby. We can tell you more about our church community and give you a free gift.
