Meet Crossroads Community Church:

From the church’s  humble beginnings in 1846, Crossroads Community Church has become a thriving local outreach, ministry,  and worship center for the Kokomo area.  Crossroads currently offers two services at their Crossroads South location and one service at their second campus, Crossroads North. They also offer an  online campus gathering four times each week.  Crossroads  has ministries for students and children at both locations each weekend.  The Crossroads Learning Corner  for children ages  six weeks to 12 years, is open Monday-Friday each week, at the south location.  They also partner closely with Preserve Marriage Ministries, a separate 501c3 that Crossroads launched to strengthen marriages in the Kokomo community.  Other ministries offered by Crossroads are Celebrate Recovery, a food ministry program (The Warehouse),  and  Good News Garage—a car repair ministry. Groups for children, students, and adults are also available at various times and locations each week. Crossroads Community Church exists to meet people where they are and help them take their next step with Christ!
