Sunday Mornings at Encounter

We gather together every Sunday morning at 10:30 at Crossroads College.

(920 Mayowood Rd. SW, Rochester 55902) 

Our gathering is casual, come as you are. Our worship is contemporary at the same time respecting the great hymns of old. We offer a nursery as well children's church for kids age 10 and under. There is always coffee available. (in a variety of flavors)

We meet in the main building on campus. Parking is plentiful. 

When you pull onto the campus keep an eye out for the Encounter signs to guide you where to find us.

What To Expect

The Church is the family of God, not a building, pews, or worship songs. As a family, we gather weekly to celebrate, grow in, receive, sing about, and remember God's grace. Our Sunday gathering is about enjoying God together as we encounter Him in worship, His Word and His people.

Service runs from 10:30-11:45. Our gathering is one of reverence of the heart, but casual in appearances. Feel free to come dressed however you feel comfortable. At each worship gathering you can expect a few songs, a sermon from the Bible, prayer, and, every first and third Sunday, a time of participating in Communion together. 

Encounter Kids is a Sunday gathering for all of our children 10 years old and younger. Encounter Kids meets in a separate class room at the same time as the worship gathering with well-equipped volunteers for a time of age-appropriate teaching and fun. We encourage those over 10 to participate in the larger worship gathering, but all kids are welcome in Encounter Kids regardless of age.

If you are a visitor, you will not be put on the spot, asked to stand up in service, or anything like that. We do want to get to know you though, so expect a few people to try to connect with you before or after the service. We want to make our Sunday gatherings a place where all, members and visitors, feel welcomed and comfortable as they seek to know God through His Son and His people.
