"Crossroads is a caring community of believers, living in authentic relationships,
impacting the Bronx and beyond with the Gospel message through Christ likeness."
Sunday mornings at Crossroads is, above all, Christ centered and cross-focused. This means you can expect to hear about sin and its only solution, the cross of Christ, at every worship service.
Our order of worship is liturgical in nature. This means that there is a rhythm to our worship that always leads us to the cross.
Worship at Crossroads is also participatory. As a congregation we sing together, confess our sins together, pray together and listen to the preaching of the word together. All of these things done in unison are expressions of our common brokenness and oneness in Christ.
The music of worship at Crossroads is a mix of old and new as we draw on both the ancient wisdom that has been handed down to us throughout generations of believers and as we obey the scripture's call to "sing a new song." This also helps us to affirm one another and build connections across the generational spectrum at Crossroads. In our desire to keep Jesus and not ourselves at the forefront, we try not to draw too much attention to the music itself by being neither performance-based nor poorly executed. Scripture calls us to play our worship music skillfully.
Worship at Crossroads is inter-generational. While nursery care and Sunday School (Potty-trained -12) are offered, children of all ages are welcomed to participate in worship as they are fellow worshipers with us. The worship service is their rightful place alongside us as they learn and grow.
You can expect all of the following at every service at Crossroads:
