Is this church part of a denomination?
Is it ok if I'm not an episcopalian?
Absolutely! Only about 10-20% of our community identifies themselves as Episcopalians. If you want to become an Episcopalian, we’ll walk with you through the process, but it’s not a requirement – we’ve got Methodists, Catholics, Baptists, Evangelicals, Pentecostals, Atheists, and more who count themselves as part of this community.
Is it ok if I’m not a Christian?
Absolutely! We are, however, a Christian community rooted in the life and witness of Jesus, living in conversation and continuity with the amazing and beautiful Christian tradition. While we’re very interested in interfaith and interpath conversation, if you’re looking to join an explicitly interfaith community (or a Jewish community, or a Buddhist community, etc), you might want to look into one of our partner communities.
Everyone is welcome to take communion, regardless of who they are or what they bring with them. We use both wine and grape juice, and gluten-free bread.
Am I allowed to take communion?
The Crossing has been home to many different kinds of people over the years, but currently the majority of us are in our twenties and thirties, on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum, and mostly white.
What are the demographics of the community?
Yes, definitely! The Crossing’s emphasis on interactivity, creativity, and practice engage children in ways that other churches don’t. We don’t, however, have any sort of child care program, choosing instead to have children participate fully in our worship.
Are children welcome at worship?
We are a progressive and expansive Christian community where queer folks are celebrated.
