Local Outreach

Church at the Crossing is committed to engaging both locally and globally. We know that validity of our global outreach is connected to the vibrancy of our local outreach. In that way we are committed to partnering with many different kinds of local ministries that are working to make an impact and be a light in the city of Indianapolis.
