Worship & Music

We worship Jesus Christ the Lord 8:00am and 10:30am, Every Sunday.


Crossroad 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 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

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.

Worship Teams

At Crossroad, 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 Crossroad.

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!
