Our church began in 1966 as the Waterford/East Lyme
Presbyterian Fellowship, a group of Christians who met in private
homes. In 1970, we became the Waterford United Presbyterian Church. The
85 charter members met in rented space at various churches in the area.
We became Crossroads Presbyterian Church when we moved into our current
home in 1989. Currently we have 130 active members.
Crossroads Church is committed to mission, outreach, and
social justice. We participate in ministry through denominational
offerings, educational opportunities, and through active involvement in
the Interfaith Food Locker of Waterford and the New London Soup
Kitchen. We are a Covenant Congregation with Habitat for Humanity, and
a member of Presbyterian Promise, working for a church that is
inclusive on all levels, without regard to a person's race, gender,
age, or sexual orientation.
Vision and Mission Statement
We are Christ's disciples, loving and serving each
other, our communities, and God's world.
As Jesus loved and trusted God above all else, so we worship God whose
steadfast love never fails us.
As Christ offered living water to the woman at the well, so we will
proclaim the Good News that God's love is for all.
As Jesus fed the hungry, washed the feet of his disciples, and healed
the sick and the lame, so we will be the servants of all.
As Jesus came among us to teach the Good News of the Kingdom, so we are
called to study God's Word and share the Word near and far.
As Jesus taught the great commandment, so we will love God with all our
hearts, minds, soul and strength, and will love our neighbor as
As Jesus taught us to pray, so we will open our hearts and minds in
conversation with God.
In the power of the Holy spirit we are called into joyful community
with one another.
As Christ is among us yet, so we have hope.
