Proclaiming Jesus Christ in Word and Deed

Our History

CrossRoads Church was chartered as a United Methodist Congregation with 225 members on October 9, 1995. Many of our members came from other Methodist congregations and sister churches. CrossRoads was born in response to a dream of starting a new church in southeast Shelby County. For this dream to be realized, St. James United Methodist Church chose to close its doors and become a part of this new congregation. Available meeting space was found in a warehouse in north Mississippi, just across the Tennessee and Shelby County line. This became home for nearly three years.

In 1998, we moved into our first phase of construction, a multi-purpose complex, located on 15 acres of land at the corner of Shelby Drive and Mayfield Road, near the Lakes of Forest Hills subdivision. Within a few months, we were able to complete phase two, a beautiful chapel.

Over the years we have served our neighbors in our community, our state, and across the world through mission efforts.  We have cared for our congregation and grown in our faith. We cordially invite you to enable us to continue to make history, and we welcome you into this faith community called CrossRoads.
