New location announced!
| Aug 20, 2023
On Sunday, August 20, Mayfair Church of Christ and Crossings announced that the current Mayfair church will become the next Crossings Community Church location.
In 1958, Mayfair Church of Christ—located west of Penn on 50th, just south of NW Expressway near the new Oak OKC development—launched a church to serve the community on what was then the far north side of Oklahoma City. Just one year later, another church, Crossings Community Church (originally Westridge Hills Church / Belle Isle Community Church) began on 55th & Linn, which was only a few blocks away from Mayfair Church of Christ, just north of NW Expressway. Both churches have a strong history and commitment to reach people with the love of Jesus Christ. This commitment was evident at the very beginning, over 60 years ago, and carries on to this day.
In 1999, to accommodate growth, Crossings Community Church relocated further north, to their current OKC location on N Portland and Memorial. Since then, Crossings has had the opportunity to expand into other ministry offerings with Crossings Christian School, two clinics serving the uninsured, a community center providing outreach ministry to the city, new church locations in the OKC metro, and a growing ministry in many prisons throughout the state of Oklahoma.
Recently, both Mayfair Church of Christ and Crossings Community Church were working to determine the best way to serve the growing population surrounding Penn and NW Expressway in the Mayfair, Belle Isle, and surrounding areas. Through this process, they determined it was best for these two churches that began so close together, to embrace their shared love for the people of this city and the things they hold in common to serve the community as one.
Mayfair Church of Christ will provide a great church building, a global missions ministry, a committed staff, and a congregation that is motivated to reach the community. Crossings will also provide families that want to be a part of this new effort, a pastoral staff, spiritual oversight, and will work to renovate the church to allow for dynamic worship, discipleship, and outreach ministries.
Addressing some of the differences between the traditions and practices of the two churches, Marty Grubbs, Senior Pastor of Crossings Community Church, said to the congregation of Mayfair Church of Christ, “Our doctrinal roots are very similar, and in the essentials, we are one.”
Mayfair Church of Christ and leaders from Crossings Community Church will meet on Sunday, September 3rd, for a celebration of all that God has done through Mayfair Church of Christ over their rich 65 year history. The church building itself will then go through a period of renovation and improvements with the goal to open again to the community, as Crossings Community Church, prior to Thanksgiving.
Leaders from Mayfair Church of Christ said, “The Mayfair church family was overwhelmingly supportive of partnering with Crossings to continue the ministries we have loved in this part of Oklahoma City and abroad, and now in greater ways and with greater resources. It has been a joy to discuss, plan and to pray about these things with the Crossings leadership, and we look forward to joining with them in this kingdom work.”
