Sunday Gathering Structure

At Crossridge, we gather on Sundays to worship and hear from God's Word (to know Jesus), and then we scatterheading to our homes, work, school...wherever (to make Him known)! When we gather on Sunday mornings, we spend our time rehearsing the Gospel in our music, scripture readings, sermon, communion, and prayer (we refer to this order/structure as "liturgy").

We follow this general flow, also known as "the Gospel Arc":

CREATION: We recognize God as the Creator and Initiator of all things, including our worship. He calls us to worship him. FALL: We acknowledge our failed attempts to live the way He's called us to. We confess our sin and our need for Him. REDEMPTION: We remember the grace we've been given through Jesus' sacrifice on the cross. We declare the assurance of salvation we have in what Jesus did. RESTORATION: As we are sent out we remember Christ's sacrifice for us (at the Lord's table in communion), and the call we are given to take this message of hope and reconcilliation to the world.

If you scroll down a bit, you'll find the "liturgy" that is planned for this coming Sunday, and below that, what was used last Sunday (with links to songs and scripture). 

What songs do we sing?

The majority of the songs we sing are available in these playlists. As new songs are added to our gatherings, we'll post them in the playlists as well. If you have questions about the music at Crossridge, you can send them via the form below.

    • Praise be to you, O LORD, God of our father Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all. Wealth and honour come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all. Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name. (1 Chronicles 29:10-13)

  • FALL // CONFESSION

    • God of love and justice, we long for peace. We long for harmony in our families, for serenity in the midst of struggle. We long for the day when our homes will be a dwelling place for your love. Yet we confess that we are often anxious, we do not trust each other, and we harbor bitterness. We are not willing to take risks and make sacrifices that love requires. Look upon us with kindness and grace. Rule in our homes and in all the world; show us how to walk in your paths, through the mercy of our Savior. Amen.


  • REDEMPTION // ASSURANCE

    • There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death! You did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received a spirit of adoption. When we cry, “Abba! Father!” it is that very Spirit bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ. (Romans 8:1-2, 15-17)

  • ADVENT READING

    • There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit. And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. And his delight shall be in the fear of the Lord. He shall not judge by what his eyes see, or decide disputes by what his ears hear, but with righteousness he shall judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth; and he shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips he shall kill the wicked. Righteousness shall be the belt of his waist, and faithfulness the belt of his loins. The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, and the calf and the lion and the fattened calf together; and a little child shall lead them. The cow and the bear shall graze; their young shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. The nursing child shall play over the hole of the cobra, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the adder's den. They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. In that day the root of Jesse, who shall stand as a signal for the peoples—of him shall the nations inquire, and his resting place shall be glorious. (Isaiah 11:1-10)

Last Sunday...
December 1, 2019
  • CREATION // CALL
    • Today is the first Sunday of Advent. The Advent season includes the four Sundays that precede Christmas. Advent is a time of preparation for the coming of the Lord. In this season, we recall two central elements of our faith: the final coming of the Lord in glory and the incarnation of the Lord in the birth of Jesus. The key themes of the Advent season are watchful waiting, preparation, and justice. The scriptures tell us to Keep awake! Be watchful! The Son of Man is coming with great power and glory. Hold your heads high, for your salvation is near. May we stay alert for his coming. Come, Lord Jesus.

    • “And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves, people fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world. For the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near. But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.” Luke 21:25-28,34-36

  • FALL // CONFESSION

    • Lord Jesus Christ, you have promised to come again as one breaking through the clouds with great power and glory. We confess that we often hide our heads in trivial matters. Free us from all the things that pull us away from you that we may have eyes to see your glory, ears to hear your liberating gospel, and lives to devote to the service of your kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

  • REDEMPTION // ASSURANCE

    • Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths.Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long. Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way. All the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies. The friendship of the Lord is for those who fear him, and he makes known to them his covenant. Psalm 25:4-5,8-9,10,14
