The Lauver Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church USA), is located between Richfield and Cocolamus in Juniata County, Pennsylvania. The first church was built in 1867 on the farm of Jacob Lauver. This brick building served the congregation until 1928, when a larger brick church replaced it along the improved highway. The congregation is a part of the Juniata-Snyder Bishop District of the Lancaster Mennonite Conference. In 1956 Boyd Kauffman and Jacob G. Bnubaker were ministers. The membership for Cross Roads-Lauver in 1956 was 153.  In 2006 the membership was 56; John W. Gehman served as pastor.

In 2012 the congregation transferred to the Conservative Mennonite Conference.
