Worship Arts

The Worship Arts teams play one of the biggest roles in setting the tone for our worship and celebration services. They consist of band, choir, front line vocalists, sound, video and lighting; Musical AND non-musical opportunities! Together they create an atmosphere where people are led to genuinely worship God. They rehearse on Wednesday nights at 6:00pm.

First Impressions Team

The First Impressions teams play the biggest role in the welcoming and friendly atmosphere we take pride in at Crossroads. They are the “first impression”. These teams are broken down to smaller parts. They consist of greeters at the doors, guides to help first time guests feel at home and find their way around, ushers to seat people, our welcome and resource center staff as well as our parking lot attendants we call “roadies”. Our First Impressions teams have very open and friendly personalities and love to serve others.

Clean Team

Each of our 4 Clean Teams at Crossroads serve once a month on Wednesday nights to make sure our facilities stay clean and ready for our services and events. Because of our Clean Team volunteers serving once a month, the church saves thousands of dollars per year. They have a great time serving and make lasting friendships!
