The Church at Crossroads

The Church at Crossroads

Welcome to the Diocesan web page for The Church at Crossroads – Episcopal! We’re a new church plant, ministering among the people of the city of Detroit under the supervision of our Bishop, the Rt. Rev’d Wendell N. Gibbs, Jr. We would like to share our ministry with you. Here’s some brief information:

Here’s some things that we are doing and becoming:
  • We hold three weekday prayer services and a Sunday service of Holy Eucharist.
  • There are many parents who come to Crossroads for meetings, and now, are also forming a new community around The Church’s new mid week lunch table! Together, we are building relationships, growing leaders and becoming empowered to live into God’s healing and reconciliation. As we get to know and become known by one another, we are sharing our challenges, dreams and disappointments. We are discovering how our spiritual lives are speaking into all these things.
  • We will hold our second annual Vacation Bible School (VBS) in 2018 that will meet for two hours each week over a seven week period.This year’s theme will be “24/7: Jesus Makes a Way Everyday!” In 2017, over forty children who came to Crossroads’ free summer lunch program also attended VBS. We pray to be a continuing vessel for God’s love in this way, discovering the gifts already blossoming among the children and families who we may meet for the first time or again this coming summer!
  • A monthly late afternoon “Messy Church” service has begun! It is called, “3rd Sundays at 3: Church for All Ages” and is held at nearby Grace Episcopal Church, Detroit. It includes Worship, music, Bible, games, crafts and a shared supper that can be prepared by those who attend. Several families are coming over from the new relationships The Church is developing on our site at Crossroads!
  • Volunteers from existing churches in the diocese are helping us in all these various efforts to minister and grow, including Grace Episcopal, Detroit and Cathedral Church of St. Paul. Come join in! Several congregations have also shared their financial resources to help make this new church plant an ongoing reality. If you, your congregation or organization feel called to also join in, please let us know and thank you!
