Sunday Morning Worship
We share a rich heritage of four-part, a cappella singing. On the typical Sunday, our praise team, LifeSong, leads us in a variety of songs and hymns, both new and old. We are passionate about worshipping God through his gift of music as we give praise and worth to him. Everyone is invited to join in the song!
On Wednesdays we offer a singing class led by Zach Brantley. We also occasionally gather as a whole church to enjoy a time of instrumental worship led by a number of our many musically gifted members. We embrace and encourage the worship of God in a variety of musical expressions at Crossbridge.
Life Song Team
LifeSong is our praise team who leads us in worship each Sunday. As part of our worshipping heritage, we enjoy the opportunity to lead our church in a variety of arrangements and teach new songs. On Wednesdays we offer a singing class which provides a great opportunity for new singers to practice with us and get involved.
At CrossBridge, we believe that worship is at the heart of our identity as followers of Jesus. Worship, rather than a means to emphasize our human preferences or desires, reminds us that we are not at the center of life–God is. As we worship together, we believe that the boundaries between heaven and earth collapse and we enter into the glorious praise of all created creatures in the astonishing presence of God. In addition, in the holy experience of worship, we proclaim that God alone is sovereign, and that this world belongs to the crucified-but-risen Christ. This connection undergirds our worship, whether collective or individual, child or adult.
Serving In Worship
LifeSong is the worship ministry of CrossBridge. LifeSong’s purpose is to lead the Lord’s people in glorifying God (Romans 15:11), edifying the family of believers (Hebrews 2:12), and evangelizing nonbelievers who come into our presence (1 Corinthians 14:24-25). Almost no better opportunity exists to make a positive statement for Christ and for His church than in our main worship assemblies. All activities are geared to encourage the active participation of every worshipper in truth and in spirit (1 Corinthians 14:15).
As LifeSong, we lead worshipers into the throne room of God to encounter His manifest presence, lift Him up in praise, and be forever changed by the experience of His nearness. We will magnify, exalt and honor the King of Heaven, the only true God, for what He has done, is doing and will do for us. We will acknowledge Him as our Creator, individually and collectively, surrendering ourselves to Him in honest worship, praise and living. We will embrace the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the inspired Word as touchstones of our continual pursuit of the Father. We will boldly proclaim the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as the foundation of our faith. We will seek the Lord in love, understanding it is He who calls us. We will accept each other in love, returning to the Lord the unique gifts and virtues He has given each of us. We will trust Him, in humble anticipation, to renew, prepare and empower us for His work, that He may be magnified in all ways and always.
