What can I expect?
How long is a crossroads CHURCH service?
In total, a Crossroads Church service is about 60 minutes in length. Services begin with the worship team leading the church in music - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of service is complete, our pastor will share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus.
What's the culture like at crossroads Church?
Sundays at Crossroads are casual, contemporary, and Christ-centered. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.
What about my kids?
We love kids at Crossroads and we’re pretty sure that your kids will love their experience in our full-service kids church. They will have their own worship experience with lots of kids their own age. We use music, drama, video, crafts, and more to make the Bible come alive to our children. We have kids church classes for kids ages 0 to 12.
Our kids church is staffed with people who love kids and are certified by our screening process to ensure the safety of every child who comes through our doors. Each class has at least 2 teachers and you will be notified immediately by our notification system if your child would need you at any time. Every child is issued a 2 part ID and parents are required to show their part of the ID when you pick up your child.
Sometimes kids are a little shy about going to a class for the first time so if you would rather keep your child with you in the sanctuary, that is fine too! We also have two rooms for nursing mothers or if your child needs a break from the service.
We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at Crossroads Kids, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our Crossroads Kids program the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get registered for the Crossroads Kids experience (or click here to pre-register your children and then all you'll have to do is check-in!).
If you have kids ages 3-12 years old, come into our Kids Church building first to get them registered and checked in if you would like to have them take part in Kids Church classes. The Kids Church building is immediately to your left as you enter our parking lot and is the building closest to Garrett Highway. Our volunteers in the Youth Sanctuary will get your kids checked in and make sure they feel at home!
If you have infants or toddlers up to age 2, the nursery is located in our main sanctuary building.
