Common Questions

Welcome! If you’re newer to Crossroads, you might be asking yourself a few questions. Let us help.

What time are services?
Services are at 8:00 a.m., 9:15 a.m. and 11 a.m. Our 8:00 a.m. service takes place in The Loft upstairs. It is a smaller more intimate setting and has a little bit of a traditional feel. Our 9:15 and 11 a.m. services take place on the main level. These services are larger and more contemporary.

How long is the service?
Our 8:00 a.m. service typically lasts less than 60 minutes. Our later services last anywhere from 75 to 90 minutes.

Do I need to be prepared for anything?
No. Crossroads is guest-friendly. We want to give people the space and time to decide if Crossroads is for them. However, our pastors do hope you’ll introduce yourself following the service and we hope you receive a warm welcome from those around you.

What about the kids?
Crossroads offers a nursery for infants and toddlers and children’s church for kids ages 3 years to 5th grade during our 9:15 and 11 a.m. services.

We also have a student worship service for kids in Grades 6-12 in The Loft upstairs at 11 a.m.

Why aren’t more people dressed up?
At Crossroads, there’s no dress code. We want people to come as they are. If you’re comfortable worshiping in a suit and tie, please do so. But, if that doesn’t feel like you, then we want you to feel comfortable in your blue jeans too. After all, 1 Samuel 16:7 says, “man looks at outward appearances, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

Is it okay to laugh?
Oh yes! And, we hope you do. Ecclesiastes says there’s a time for everything including a time to laugh. We like to have fun and we like to be real. We want church to be something people look forward to each week.

Can I have a donut?
You betcha! Crossroads serves free donuts and coffee between our second and third services at the back of the gym. This is a time to hang out and meet others.

How did this church get started?
The Christian Evangelizing Association of Kansas is always looking for places to start new churches. The CEA’s mission is to ensure that people have access to Bible-preaching churches that are designed much like the churches of the first century—free of creeds and man-made teachings. Shawnee was identified for such a church back in the early 1990s.
