worship & Arts

We believe worship is our response to what God has done for us through His Son, Jesus Christ. Therefore, worship is not just something we do on the weekend as we gather. Worship is a lifestyle. Our worship should make a difference in the lives of those around us and in the world.


If you visit Crossbridge, you may want to know we design our weekend services with two distinct groups of people in mind. Our focus is on the believer (those who have a relationship with Christ), but we also want to be mindful of the seeker (those who do not yet know Christ).


We want our worship to be God-Centered, biblically based and designed to help Christians engage in moments of spiritual intimacy with God. For the seeker, our desire is to demonstrate our devotion to God by having excellence in music and to present the gospel by singing the truth of God's word.


Lastly, we desire our worship music to be culturally relevant. This does not mean we do not sing the great old hymns of the faith. It just means they may be done in a different way.
