We have a couple of homes.
Our main home is the chapel located inside the social service agency, Crossroads of Michigan at 2424 W. Grand Blvd., Detroit, right down from Henry Ford Hospital and the Motown Museum. Crossroads is near and dear to many as it was founded by our own Cathedral Church of St. Paul in 1971. The best part about being located right inside the agency is that we get to meet many of the neighbors who live around Crossroads.
Our second home is close by at Grace Episcopal Church, Detroit. Grace, where we also hold some events, is located at 1926 Virginia Park Street at the corner of Rosa Parks Blvd. Many faithful leadership team members for TCAC are core members from Grace. Together, with leadership from other diocesan congregations who also volunteer, we are meeting neighbors who live around the shared corridor between Crossroads and Grace Church.
Building a new church or community takes time. It is built on relationships of trust with faith that God is already at work in the lives of the people of the neighborhood. Here are some things that are helping build relationships—those begun, continued and those yet to be planted.
*All in-person ministries are postponed due to COVID-19*
Donations can be made here, or by check, payable to “The Episcopal Diocese of Michigan”, 4800 Woodward Ave., Detroit, MI 48201. Please indicate “The Church at Crossroads” on the notation line. All funds are managed and accounted for by our diocesan finance office.

Thank you again for spending some time with us! We hope and pray you are blessed by your visit and would be very grateful to get to meet you and talk together about how God may be calling you or your congregation to share in ministry together.
