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...
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

Last Sunday...
November 24, 2019
  • CREATION // CALL
    • People of God, worship the living God today! Remember that out of nothing God created the heavens and earth. Remember that God raised Jesus from the powerlessness of death to the power of his right hand. Remember that not even the gates of hell can stand against God’s purposes. Behold your God, who reigns now and forever!

  • FALL // CONFESSION

    • “Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for me. If I had cherished iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not have listened. But truly God has listened; he has given heed to the words of my prayer. Blessed be God, because he has not rejected my prayer or removed his steadfast love from me. In the strength of this assurance, let us confess our sins to God.” Psalm 66:16-20

  • REDEMPTION // ASSURANCE

    • Take comfort in the assurance that even those things that are hidden from memory, or are too deep for our words, are not beyond God’s forgiving love. God, who knows us completely, bestows pardon and peace. Thanks be to God.
