Who We Are

We’re always being made new…but we’ve been around for a LONG time!

Crossroads began in 1922 as a Lutheran club called the Daughters of the Reformation on the campus of the Mankato State Teachers College. Throughout its diverse history, Crossroads has been a vibrant voice for Lutheran Christians in connection with the Mankato area congregations and the many expressions of Minnesota State University-Mankato.

Throughout our existence, we have continued to value:

  • Christ centered worship and teaching…
  • Love for the neighbor as the greatest of spiritual gifts…
  • A non-judgmental community, which respects and appreciates diversity…
  • Hospitality for the visitor…
  • The asking of questions and the pursuit of truth…
  • A safe community in which people are appreciated for who they are – God’s beloved children…
  • Academic and personal excellence…

We’re a ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, directed by the Southeastern Minnesota Synod of the ELCA. We’re here to respond to the call of the Holy Spirit through the Gospel. We gather together to preach the Word of God, experience the Sacraments, and carry out God’s mission. The community gathers in the name of the Triune God. We confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior and that the Gospel, the Good News of Jesus Christ, is the power of God for the salvation of all of creation and for all who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord.

Please join us!
