What We Do

Campus Cupboard

Students of all backgrounds and beliefs come to the Cupboard to get food to sustain them through challenging times. The Cupboard typically gives away more than TWO TONS of food every month! Come meet Becky Menk, Cupboard Coordinator who makes sure everyone is welcomed with dignity and joy.

Tuesdays 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM

Thursdays 12:00 Noon – 5:30 PM

Reconciling in Christ

Community and Care

Gather with others to talk and pray about life through reflecting on the scriptures. We meet at 6:00 PM on Wednesdays. Would you like to talk to someone non-judgmental about life, faith, or any other concern? Pastor Heather Hammond is approachable and a good listener. She is a committed Christian, but never strong-arms anyone into believing anything. Instead she is an attentive companion for your personal spiritual journey.

Come to the Crossroads

…and ask where the good way is, and walk in it. – Jeremiah 6:16

People from many walks of life meet at the Crossroads. Come to study, talk, or just hang out. Free wi-fi access.

Crossroads is LGBTQIA friendly, and safe.

What students say

I don’t know how I would have made it through without the Campus Cupboard. Thank you for doing this for all of us.

― Recent Mankato Graduate

The day I went to Crossroads is when my life changed for the better. I was welcomed with open arms and invited to worship Christ in an amazing environment.

― Tyler, Student leader

Welcoming all people of good will, no exceptions.

Crossroads is committed to welcoming people of all religious and racial backgrounds and all gender identities. The grace of God expects no less of us.

Our Programs

Lunch For $1

Lunch 4 A Buck is back! Join us on Tuesdays from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM. Lunch every Tuesday during the academic year brings together students, staff, and faculty for a delicious hot meal with salad bar. We ask for a donation of $1, or more if you have it.

Bible Study

Fellowship for people who don’t like church, and those who do. You won’t be harangued or invited to an altar call. We listen to the Judeo-Christian scriptures to reflect on life as it is. People of all faiths, and none, are welcome. Face masks expected as a sign of care for self and others.

Spiritual Direction

Find your own spiritual direction with the help of a companion who listens to your heart. You set the pace, and choose what you want to talk about. All conversations are confidential. Set up an appointment with Pastor Heather. She has rich experience in accompanying people on their journeys.
