Crossroads Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church USA) at Timberville, Rockingham County, Virginia, under the Virginia Conference, meets in what was originally a community church (known as Union Church) that was built in 1909 by popular subscription, and was formerly used by a number of groups, principally by the Baptists. For a number of years, however, it was rarely used except for singings. The Northern District of the Virginia Conference took up the work about 1933, holding Sunday school, preaching services, singings, and in 1948 prayer meetings. From 1934 until 1959, the church met every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month for services. Weekly services began in 1960.

The 1954 membership was 39. In 2008 the membership was 36; the pastor was Aaron Boggs. In 2014 the Ministers were Marian Becker Buckwalter and David J. Gullman. The church's membership was 27.
