Come as you are

Seriously. This is a real place for real people. Regardless of what you think about God, you are welcome here. In a nutshell, you can wear jeans, or dress up if you want. The coffee is free, so grab a cup before you sit down. The music is great and you’ll hear straight up Biblical truth that you can apply to your everyday life. The rest is up to you.

Meet Greg McElfresh

Greg is the East Side Community Pastor. A graduate of Amelia High School, he is excited to be back in his hometown after serving as the founding Community Pastor of Crossroads West Side. Greg is a huge fan of Man Camp, and does his best to support Jungle Jim’s pint night. He and his wife Abby have three daughters, Emme, Liv, and Ada. And no, they are not going to try for a boy.

Weekday Hours

Our building is open to the public six days a week. Enjoy free coffee, wi-fi and plenty of couches. Come for a meeting, just to hang out with friends, or even for a quiet place to read or pray.
