Our congregation is diverse, and so is our music style. Our praise and worship style includes both contemporary choruses and old hymns with the sole focus being lifting praise to a holy God.

On Sundays all children remain in the sanctuary until after the song service in order to encourage them to learn to worship. After the song service, they may attend the main worship service with you or participate in one of the age-specific ministry opportunities that we offer. Sunday evening evangelistic service does not have a children's service at the same time. Everyone is in the sanctuary.

Women serve in various capacities at Crossroads including leadership. The Lord calls and Crossroads recognizes them to serve in many ministry capacities. The Bible utilized women in many areas of ministry and Crossroads does as well.

Crossroads values and encourages the use of all of the gifts of the Spirit noted in Romans 12, Ephesians 4, and 1 Corinthians 12. It is important to us that the vocal gifts (prophecy, tongues, and interpretation of tongues) be used in a manner consistent with Paul’s teaching in 1 Corinthians 14, with body edification and concern for the lost or unlearned being first and foremost.
