Located at 2537 Hutchison Road in Crosshill Ontario, Crosshill Mennonite Church is a rural congregation located in Waterloo region about 20 minutes west of the city of Waterloo. (See our profile on the Mennonite Church Canada website)
A visioning process in 1996 helped us to further define our identity and our mission. We agreed that we believe God calls us to be a growing, caring congregation that is involved in the community. We recognized the ongoing need for personal spiritual growth, centred on Christ’s teaching. And, in order to have a place for everyone to celebrate God’s presence in worship, we identified the need for updated, inviting facilities.
Following a needs analysis, and considerable planning, a decision was made to build a new facility rather than renovate the existing building. A parcel of land was purchased at 2357 Hutchison Road, a property owned at one time by the Rev. James Boyd. In the spring of 2005, a groundbreaking ceremony on this property was followed by a construction project that reached completion in June 2006. We have been worshipping at the new site since June 18, 2006, while the “Boyd Church” property is now the meeting place for the Crosshill Old Colony Mennonite Church.
Remembering our story as part of God’s story reminds us that we are not self generated people, but we are God’s people. We are an Easter people who have a dynamic, never-ending story that only begins when we, like Mary in the Gospel of John, have seen the Risen Lord and obey his command to go and tell the others.
