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.

This coming Sunday...
January 12, 2020
  • CREATION // CALL
    • "Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy! For the Lord, the Most High, is to be feared, a great king over all the earth. God has gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet. Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises! For God is the King of all the earth; sing praises with a psalm!" ~ Psalm 47:1-2,5-7

  • FALL // CONFESSION
    • "Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need." ~ Hebrews 4:14-16

 

  • REDEMPTION // ASSURANCE

    • “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you!” ~ 1 Peter 1:3-4

    • We have been made alive through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. This is God’s gospel promise: to forgive our sins and give us eternal life by grace alone because of Christ’s one sacrifice finished on the cross.

Last Sunday...
January 5, 2020
  • FALL // CONFESSION
    • Merciful God, you are faithful and just; you are willing to forgive our sins and to purify us from all unrighteousness. We confess to you and to one another, that we have sinned against you by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart and mind and strength. We have not fully loved our neighbors as ourselves. We have not always had in us the mind of Christ. Through our Lord Jesus may we begin this new year with the joy of knowing we belong to you, with the freedom of being purified by your blood, and with the healing which your grace alone can bring.

  • REDEMPTION // ASSURANCE

    • But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.(Ephesians 2:4-7)
