Have regularly attended Crossroads Christian Church for at least 6 months. The term ‘regularly attended’ will be at the sole discretion of the eldership, on a case-by-case basis; due to membership from other churches whom have merged with Crossroads or those who are physically unable to attend due to health, age, work, travel, or moving out of the area, but regularly support Crossroads in other ways.
