Since coming to Cross Road Baptist Church, I have not only grown spiritually, adopted leadership roles, met new people and learned new skills, but I have also found a family. I know my Cross Roads brothers and sisters will listen to me, pray for me and be there for me at a drop of a hat. My church home is a place where I can turn to in times of trial, times of joy and times of stillness.

I fell in love with the Cross Roads family from the first day I came here. While I was away at college, I missed my church family here and couldn’t wait to come back. Part of me wanted to keep exploring other churches like I did in college, but when I got back home, I knew that I couldn’t leave my family behind.
