Worship & Music


Cross+Road Lutheran Church is about connecting to God and to each other. Our vision is simple: we want to be a place where people can find real community in a time when everything seems virtually real. The family is very important. This means two things for us:

  • We are a place where you and your whole family can worship and grow together in the faith.
  • We are a place where family is ultimately defined by baptism--the single person, the divorced person, the retired person, the newlyweds; all joined into the family of Christ, each generation learning from and teaching each other.
  • Our weekly services are 100% contemporary in a casual and family-friendly atmosphere 
  • We have a staffed Nursery available at each service for children ages 5 and under
  • We enjoy coffee, cookies and fellowship after each service 
  • Our worship music is lead by our band, under the direction of Brooks Clarke
  • Cross+Road's Choir meets several times a year to prepare special music for worship

Our mission is to gather all people together in following Jesus, equip them to do the work he has entrusted to us, and send them out transformed for ministry, so that they might gather others in following Jesus.


Brooks Clarke is a supremely talented musician, versed in numerous instruments, and styles. He leads the Cross+Road Haus band in praise as they use their gifts to lead God's people at Cross+Road in worship of the LORD.  Brooks is a graduate of Jacksonville University and a native son of Orange Park. We are blessed to have such a gifted man helping us in our mission for God. 

Our Nursery

Tammy Margeson is our nursery attendant and she is certified in infant and child first aid and CPR. She and her husband Jeff have three grown children, Bret Cassie and Lindy. They are both from WV but have lived in the Jacksonville area for 11 years. Prior to being a mom to her three children, Tammy worked as a nanny.

 The nursery is open at both services for children ages 5 and under.

Worship Times

Worship takes place on Sundays and Cross+Road offers two services:

8:00 am (not so traditional)

10:30am (contemporary)

We also offer Sunday School between services at 9:15am.

Worship Teams

At Cross+Road, we have five volunteer Worship Teams who assist our pastor and help make sure our services run smoothly. 

Each Worship Team serves for one month at a time .

Worship Teams are a wonderful way for a family to serve together at Cross+Road.

Worship Teams are also a great way get to know others in our church family.

There is something for everyone on a Worship Team:    

  • Greeters and Ushers      
  • Communion Assistants      
  • Readers      
  • Coffee and Cookie Hosts      
  • Set-up and Clean-up 

We would love to have you join us on a Worship Team!
