“Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.”

Colossians 3:16

Whether you sing, play an instrument, or enjoy Worship Arts,
you will find a multitude of opportunities to use your gifts for the Kingdom.

 The manifest presence of God is the difference at Crossgates.  

He is the essence of our focus.  
We invite you to be a part of our Worship family.

There is a place for everyone at Crossgates Worship!

One Ministry. Many Areas.

Hundreds of volunteers are needed each and every week to serve in all ministry areas of worship.  Below are links to all the ministry areas of worship.

Worship Choir

The Worship Choir leads weekly in our Sunday AM Encounters and for other Outside the Walls opportunities throughout the year. No audition is required and childcare is provided.

Worship Orchestra

The Worship Orchestra is a group of spirit-filled, auditioned musicians who play with our adult Worship Choir in Sunday Morning and Evening Encounters.

Worship Band

The Worship Band is a group of spirit-filled, auditioned musicians who lead in worship on Sunday Mornings, select Evening Encounters, and for other events.

NextGen Worship

The NextGen Worship Band is a group of auditioned singers and players who lead worship each Wednesday night for Middle School, Thursday night for Young Adult Worship, and Sunday night for High School student worship encounters.

KingSingers Children's Choirs

KingSingers is our Children’s Worship Ministry for ages 3 years through 5th grade. Our children’s choir lead us in worship during Worship Encounters several times throughout the year.  The 2nd - 5th grade choirs also present a musical each spring.

School of Worship Arts

This School offers private and group lessons taught by qualified Christian instructors in many areas of the worship arts.
It is our goal to enhance the development of artistic skills that they may be used to honor and glorify our Lord, Jesus Christ. We would love to talk with you about becoming a part of SWA.

Worship LifeGroup

Get Connected. Go Deeper.

For those serving in Worship Ministry weekly, it is hard to find the time to get connected in a LifeGroup.  With this challenge in mind, we have a LifeGroup specific designed for those serving in all ministry areas of the worship ministry at Crossgates.  
This LifeGroup meets on Sunday mornings, immediately following the
9 AM Worship Encounter in the Music Suite.

Virtual Choir & Orchestra Project

We had such a great time working on this project.  Thanks to all that took the time to record and submit their personal recordings to us where we could bring the Crossgates Choir & Orchestra back together again in a virtual setting.

Childcare for those serving in Worship Ministry

During weekly rehearsals, childcare is provided for children 5th grade and younger.
During the Morning Worship Encounters, all children attend LifeGroups, Preschool Worship, or Kids Worship depending on their age.
During the Evening Worship Encounters, activities are provided for 5th graders and younger.
For all other events, reservations can be submitted through the button below:
