Cross Roads Mennonite Church (Keystone Mennonite Fellowship, formerly Mennonite Church), Juniata County, Pennsylvania, was initially a member of the Lancaster Conference. Bishop John Graybill's home was the place of worship for the Richfield community until 1854 when a large stone church was built near Richfield, but in Snyder County. In 1930 a new brick meetinghouse known as Cross Roads was erected in Juniata County. This church with the Lauver church had a joint membership of 165 in the early 1950s. W. W. Graybill and Donald Lauver were the bishops, with Menno B. Brubaker and J. Walter Graybill as ministers.

In 2007 the congregation was a member of the Keystone Mennonite Fellowship, which formally separated from the Lancaster Conference in 1999. It had 106 members; Orval C. Graybill and Timothy Lauver were ministers.
