Welcome from Pastor Jake

Thanks so much for checking out Crossroads in Cottage Grove, MN! We exist to help people be more like Jesus and do Jesus like stuff. 

At first glance, you may think that’s something only pastors should be doing - being “Jesus like” and all. But the truth is, this Jesus guy, he’s for all of us. We have a motto at Crossroads that goes like this: “No Perfect People Allowed.”  You see, we believe we all can come to church just as we are.  All of us. With all of our hurts, habits and hangups.  No need to wear any masks -leave them at the door.  There truly are no perfect people allowed at Crossroads.  Church is for all of us and Jesus loves us just as we are. So would you come and join us?

At Crossroads, you will find relevant teachings with practical help for your everyday life. We believe in making the Bible accessible and relatable. You’ll find our messages helpful, timely, and encouraging. 

At Crossroads, you will meet authentic people. From our greeters to the folks serving your kids, you will find friendly people who are just like you! We’ll do our best to welcome you and introduce you to a few new friends. Our hope is that our campus becomes a home for you and your family.

At Crossroads, you will see a passion for all we do. We have a strong passion for Jesus and for people. This leads us to do everything we do with excellence. From our café, to our children’s ministry to our worship experience we do our very best to create an environment you and your family will enjoy. We love what we do and we love to do it well!

Join us any Sunday at 9:15 or 11:15!  Children’s ministry (birth through 5th grade) is available at both.
