I’m new to church

Our service begins with contemporary worship using keyboards, drums, and guitars, to accompany our singers. Song lyrics will be on the screens throughout the building. During worship, some members may sit, stand, kneel, or raise their hands; but don’t feel pressured to mimic this.

After worship, we will have offering and announcements. Do not feel pressured to give an offering during this time if you’re just visiting. Please be sure to fill out a connect card from the back of the seat in front of you and drop it in the offering as it’s collected.

Our sermons are instructional and  informal. We will have notes available on the screens. The sermon will end with a call for prayer and a song. After service, feel free to speak with the pastoral staff and the members of the church in the lobby.

Any walk of life or spiritual history are welcome at Crossroads. When you come, connect with one of our greeters, ushers, or pastors before the service. They can answer any questions you may have.


You may have questions about the order and style of our services. Below are answers to some common questions. If you have any additional questions, feel free speak with a pastor.


Why do we stand to sing?

Then some Levites from the Kohathites and Korahites stood up and praised the Lord, the God of Israel, with very loud voice.  2 Chronicles 20:19
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.  Colossians 3:16

Why do we raise and clap our hands?

I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.  Psalm 63:4
I want men everywhere to lift up holy hands in prayer, without anger or disputing. Timothy 2:8
Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy. Psalm 47:1

Why do we have audible praises with our voices?

I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips. Psalm 34:1
Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise-the fruit of lips that confess his name.  Hebrews 13:15

Why do we pray for the sick?

Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.  James 5:14,15

What is prophecy?

I would like every one of you to speak in tongues, but I would rather have you prophesy. He who prophesies is greater than one who speaks in tongues, unless he interprets, so that the church may be edified.  1 Corinthians 14:5
Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good… to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues.  1 Corinthians 12:7,10

Why do we have speaking in tongues and interpretation of tongues in the church?

Therefore, my brothers, be eager to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues.  1 Corinthians 14:39

Why do we seek to have this type of spiritual worship?

Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.  John 4:23, 24
