The purpose of Crossroads Community Church is to shine the light of Jesus Christ from the hill at the crossroads to the nations of Upper Darby and the world.
We are located just a few blocks from the 69th Street Transportation hub and six blocks beyond the border of West Philadelphia. The community is a crossroads for the nations. People pass through not only on their way to work and to shop, but also on their way to a new life.
Our vision is for the nations of Upper Darby to see life more clearly and feel loved more deeply as the light of Jesus Christ shines through us.
We plan to achieve that vision with a strategy to serve practically, speak personally, and shine powerfully, especially as we focus on families living near the church building.
We reach out with:
- free English Language Learning
- low cost Preschool suitable for English language learners
- after school programs in local elementary schools
- summer activities
- street evangelism
- halloween alternatives
- many other practical helps
We have served Upper Darby for more than 100 years. Like our community, we have changed during that time. We are now diverse in membership and leadership -- not only ethnically different from each other (members come from 20+ countries), but also diverse in our education, income, church background, theology, politics, wardrobe, and more.
Our membership roll reads like an atlas of the world, with members speaking languages and sharing the cultures of Angola, Cambodia, Cameroon, China, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Guyana, Haiti, India, Jamaica, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Mali, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, Togo, Trinidad, Uganda, the United Kingdom, and many other countries.
Such diversity enriches our lives and fosters great community. We gather together for:
- vibrant worship each Sunday morning
- regular seasons of prayer
- joyful fellowship events
- enriching Bible study
- and more
