Worship singing plays a big part in Crossroads Community Church’s corporate worship gatherings.
While worshipping God includes much more than singing, we take joy in the unity and shared offering of making a joyful noise unto the Lord (Psalm 100:2). Our singing glorifies our God, the sovereign Creator, and tells of His great works, and expresses our thankfulness for His work in our own lives, the finished work of Christ on the cross, and the work of the Spirit in our daily walk. Our worship singing also serves as a unifying and edifying catalyst. Expressing our love and fear to the Lord as his bride, the church, unites us as his body, and builds us up as we worship together (Ephesians 5:19).
Stylistically, we try to reflect God's diversity and creativity by incorporating all kinds of music and songs. We sing old hymns, modern hymns, praise choruses, and modern worship songs that are biblically and theologically sound; and the goal of the song is to bring glory to God in Christ through the Spirit!
Most of the time you'll see acoustic guitars, electric guitars, drums, bass, keyboards, and vocals on our stage; but it's not unusual to see a flute, cello, violin, choir, djembe or cajon as well! One week we even borrowed hymnals and had "Hymn Sunday!" God's church has a rich history of music and singing, and at Crossroads we want to appreciate that history, as well as explore exciting new avenues of biblical worship.
We choose songs by: Sovereign Grace Music, Chris Tomlin, Israel Houghton, Keith and Kristyn Getty,Hillsong Music, Tommy Walker, Resolved Music, Matt Redman, Charlie Hall, David Crowder Band, and others; along with all the great hymn authors of the past.
