Worship

“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!
Visit one of our rehearsals or contact us today.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Upcoming Events

Spring Rehearsal Season

The Worship Choir at Crossgates is a passionate group of spirit-filled believers that lead our church in Worship Encounters each week. This Spring, we will also go “Outside the Walls” to the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility,” lead our Easter Worship Celebrations, and participate in “A Night of Worship.” If you have an interest in Worship Choir, please come visit one of our weekly rehearsals.  When you arrive, one of our team members will help you feel comfortable and show you where to go and what to expect.  We look forward to meeting you!
