The Crossings Church Innerbelt was planted in 2014 after a group of about 30 friends moved over from Wentzville to start a new church in this area. As far as churches go, The Crossings is special in a number of ways:
1) The Crossings is a diverse church where everyone is welcomed.
The Crossings is a racially, socially, and economically diverse church. There are people from lots of different backgrounds and socio-economic classes represented in our church. Regardless of your race or background you can find a place to fit in.
2) Lots of people are pretty new Christians or are just investigating faith.
One of the things you might notice right away that a large percentage of the people at The Crossings are relatively new to the Christian faith or they're simply investigating to see what all the fuss is about. Many of our church members did not grow up with much of a background going to church or learning the Bible. If you're just learning or checking things out, you’ll fit right in!
3) Our members are all ages and there are lots of young people.
The Crossings has very active college, high school, junior high, and kids ministries. Between weekly Cross Chats, trips, summer camps, fun events, and game nights, there is constantly stuff going on for students from UMSL & SLCC, teens, or youth. Additionally, we have active adult ministries as well - we have something for people of all ages. Your entire family has a place at The Crossings.
4) We are very familiar with life's struggles.
A lot of our people and church leaders have greatly struggled in life due to sexual abuse, physical abuse, unhealthy family situations, divorce, addictions, and struggles with various other life issues.
5) The Crossings is full of people who care, and are here to help.
Because of our collective experience with brokenness, and due to the immense outpouring of love and grace we've experience in Jesus, The Crossings is a safe place for you regardless of your background or current struggles. The Crossings is a place where you will make life-long friends who will become like family for you.
There's a saying we have at The Crossings: God loves you just the way you are ... but He loves you too much to leave you the way you are. We strongly believe those words are true - that faith in Jesus is a journey - and that we're here to join you on that journey. We would love to connect with you!
