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.
  • The chapel is open during the weekly Crossroads’ parent classes which include about 30+ parents. The Church gets to meet them through our mid week meals, special events like the Christmas Pageant, and the simple, but important, ministry of hospitality and presence.
  • Vacation Bible School (VBS) is one of the Church’s signature offerings. During the summer each year, the Church offers VBS one afternoon a week over an approximate seven week period. Each summer, over forty children participate one or more times.
  • The Church is exploring deeper means of ministry to more intentionally call leaders for the Church and the world among the many gifted children and parents of the neighborhood. A Design Team for Leadership Development, comprised of people who live near the new Church as well as people from some of our diocesan congregations, are discerning together how to go forward. The goal is to share community and growth in the love of Jesus for all ages.
  • Volunteers from existing churches in the diocese are generously helping us in all these various efforts to minister and grow, both through hands on ministry and/or financial support.
