There is ample FREE parking.
Where to park
Your best FREE parking option is to use the parking deck located directly across Cleveland Ave. from the church. Entrance to the parking garage is on Tuscarawas Street. The parking deck is available on Sunday mornings from 8:00am to 12:00am, and remember it is FREE parking each and EVERY Sunday.
There is also plenty of parking available around and near the church. If you are new to driving downtown it can be a little tricky navigating the one-way streets.
Special needs parking
If you have special needs, handicapped parking is available on Cleveland Avenue at specially marked parking meters outside the church entrance. The building is handicapped accessible through the door on with the awning on Cleveland Ave. and there are no steps to navigate if you use this entrance. An elevator is just inside the door which will take you directly to the sanctuary. Ushers are available for assistance.
For additional information please call the church office at 330.455.0153
What to Wear
We don’t believe that God is worried about what you wear to church, so we are not worried about it either. We don’t have a dress code, so don’t be stressed about what you have to wear; however, we want you to know what to expect when you arrive. Those who attend our Sunday morning services at Crossroads wear everything from very to moderate casual to a suit and tie or dress. Bottom-line come just as you are and you will fit in! We are honored to have you as our guest.
When You Arrive
Once you arrive, you will be greeted at any one of our church entrances. Greeters will be readily available to help you get settled in for an exciting morning. During the worship services, you will be given an opportunity to complete a contact card. Please complete this card and turn it in at the back table after the service for a small thank you gift. Your personal information is kept confidential. We do not sell or distribute the personal information of our visitors or church members. However, the church may use the information to express our thanks for your visit.
If you have children between 6 weeks and 24 months, there is a nursery located next to the sanctuary. Just ask an usher or greeter if you need child care suring the service.
For children 2 years through 6th grade, Sunday School is offered during the service. more
Our building is handicapped accessible. A wheelchair ramp is located at the Cleveland Ave. entrance. An elevator to the sanctuary is directly to the left when you come in this door. An accessible restroom is located on the East side of the sanctuary.

What do Methodist's Believe?
Christians believe in God, and they also believe that His only son Jesus came to earth, died for our sin and was resurrected. United Methodists are a branch of the Protestant church, and the UMC website has great information on what we believe. See the Crossroads Mission Statement for more about beliefs.
Membership is open to all people. The pastor will meet with people interested in joining, sharing with them what it means to be an active vital member of the United Methodist Church.
If you'd like a visit, contact the the office.
If you, someone in your family, or another church member that you know is ever hospitalized or otherwise ill, please notify Jane Fleischer, our Director of Caring Ministries. The hospitals don't always contact the church when a member is admitted. Even if you don't want a visit, just let us know so we can pray for you or them!
