General Ministries

BusMinistryThe Bus Ministry at Crossroads Baptist Church is dynamic ministry designed to reach young people and families for the Lord!

For more information on riding the church bus, or to sign up to ride the Church Bus, please email:

The Church Bus picks up kids between 9:15am-9:50am, and drops off between 12:15pm-12:50pm


Children 5 and older

Parents are welcome!

It is possible that we do not have a route in your area, but we are working to further our reach!


We have many different forms of visitation at Crossroads Baptist Church spread out throughout the year: Door to Door Evangelism, Bus Visitation, Operation Saturation, Hospital Visits, First-Time Guest Visitation, etc. 

S.E.E.D. or Strategically Evangelizing Every Door, was design for the purpose of seeing to touching every heart with the Gospel and not simply canvassing one street and calling it, "Good." The S.E.E.D. Ministry is not design to be a quick successful ministry, but a slow, get-to-know the families in our neighborhood type of ministry. 

We would love to have your help in any of these areas of outreach. Please pray as to where and when you could reach out with us!

postcard-3.5inx5.5in-h-frontFor many years the Jolly 60's program at Crossroads has been a wonderful ministry reaching out to the Senior Citizens of Central Illinois. We at Crossroads wish to show our gratitude and love for our previous generations by serving them. Jolly 60's takes place on the 2nd Thursday of every month. The meal begins at 11:30 am, and we are usually finished with this event no later than 1:00 pm. During Jolly 60's we serve a meal, hear from God's Word, send birthday & anniversary wishes, play a short game, and have a prize drawing. Folks in attendance may bring a side dish for the meal if they wish, but this event is free to all our visitors. Please mark your calendars for the 2nd Thursday of every month. We hope to see you at our next Jolly 60's event!
