NEXT STEPS CLASS

Our Pastor, Rob Mullins, would like to invite new members and visitors to enjoy a free light lunch immediately after the service on September 30th while he shares little more about our history, philosophy, and vision for ministry. NEXT STEPS provides an opportunity for you to learn more about the core values and the vision of Crossroads. This is not a mandatory class for membership, but is highly recommended. We want you to be secure in your faith, comfortable with your church family, and confident in the vision we have been given here at Crossroads.

Please Register: We ask that you register so that we can make adequate preparations. You may register online or at the Welcome desk in the Narthex. Childcare through age 12 is available by request. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at 901-309-7777.
