Our Mission

CrossRoads Church is an interdenominational church, meaning we have people with a vast array of faith backgrounds including Protestant, Methodist, Lutheran, Catholic and more. We have a “come as you are” approach, offering bible based teaching, adult worship service, CrossRoads Kids Church, free and safe child care, and great coffee! Join us Sundays at 9:30am in the Peosta Community Centre.

Our Church

CrossRoads Church is an interdenominational Christian church where people experience Real Faith in Jesus that will change their lives now and forever. Our church was formed with some families sharing a vision for a new church that would serve those in the Peosta and Western Dubuque area. We are now a collection of over 200 people from different faith traditions worshiping together; including Methodists, Catholics, Lutherans, Presbyterians, and more. We have one thing in common:

We all love Jesus because He first loved us.
