A typical Sunday....
All Sunday School Classes begin at 9:45 am.
Our Sunday School hour is dedicated to fellowshipping and growing with others believers in the same stage of life. For the adults, it is a time to open up the Word of God in a personal setting and share prayer requests with some of our closest friends. For our children and students, it is a time to fellowship with peers of the same age while learning applicable Bible truths. For babies, it is a time to be loved and cared for by amazing nursery volunteers! (1 Thessalonians 5:11, Galatians 6:2) (It doesn't hurt that there is fresh coffee in every class and the scent of hot, home-made breakfast wofting through the hallways, either. That'll wake you up for the Worship Service.)
The Main Worship Service begins at 10:50 am.
All teens and adults are invited to the Main Auditorium as we direct our attention to corporate prayer, singing and giving. We usually begin the services with about 20 mins of corporate singing. This portion of the services consists of a variation of special music, choir songs and congregational singing. Our one desire in all of our music is that it be Christ-centered, biblically-based and doctrinally rich.
We LOVE congregational singing at Crossroads...
In fact, it is the primary style of singing we employ each week. There is something special about the entire local church body of Jesus singing in one accord to bring glory to God! (Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16) *Follow this link to know our music philosophy here at Crossroads.
After singing, our attention is turned towards the preaching and teaching of the Word of God. (1 Timothy 3:2, 2 Timothy 2:24, 1 Corinthians 1:21, Titus 1:3). Pastor Heath preaches through whole books of the Bible as his sermon series. At Crossroads, we practice expositonal preaching.
We believe that expository preaching is the most efficient and biblical way to preach through the Word of God.
Expository preaching is the preaching of every verse in a particular passage. It allows the hearer to gain a full, contextual grasp of the Scripture, helping them to better understand the whole counsil of God. (Acts 20:27-28)
At the conclusion of each service, there is a time of prayer where people are encouraged to seek God and ask Him what He would have them do in light of that day's preaching. There are men and women available during this time to help those who might have questions or be in need of supportive prayer.
Basically, in all we do on Sunday, we strive to lift up Jesus and exalt His Word! (John 17:17, Romans 10:17, Psalm 138:2, Hebrews 4:12)

A typical Wednesday....
All Wednesday Evening activities begin at 6:30 pm.
Wednesday Nights at Crossroads are dedicated to the spiritual and relational health of our church. From 6:30 pm to approx. 7:45 pm, there is something for every stage of life. Take a look at what you and your family could be involved in below:
Adult Bible Study
In the Upstairs Auditorium, Pastor Heath leads a time of corporate prayer and Bible study. During this time, people are encouraged to share their prayer requests and praises or simply request prayer for an unspoken matter. After a time of prayer, Pastor jumps right into a verse-by-verse study of a book of the Bible. Currently, the Wednesday sermon series is "Walking with Him" (a verse-by-verse study through the book of Genesis).
Personal Discipleship is very important in the life of a new or long-time Christian who is looking to take the next step for Jesus. Discipleship is a 13-week course open to anyone who desires to know the main, biblical tenants of the Christian faith or wants to deepen their knowledge of the Bible. The person desiring discipleship is paired with a teacher of the same gender, and they jointly study through the "Continue" course (a Bible-based, Scripture-saturated cirriculum that explains and helps practically apply major Bible truths). To learn more or enroll in Personal Discipleship, let us know here!
Salt&Light Teen Group
Crossroads' Teens meet each Wednesday night at 6:30 pm in the Teen Room upstairs (Sunday Mornings at 9:45 am). All middle and high school students are invited to join as our Student Pastor and his wife teach Bible truths that can be applied to everyday teen-living. Currently, the teens are studying through the book of James, dealing with temptations, respect, faith and the tongue. Salt&Light is home to teenagers from Wilson, Stuarts Draft, Lee, Riverheads, Harrisonburg, Waynesboro, Ridgeview Christian and more. All teens are invited to laugh their guts out, play some ping-pong and hang out with friends while learning straight-forward Bible truths from the entire Bible.
Master Clubs Kids Group
Master Clubs runs parallel to the school year. We kick off each year of Master Clubs in August and conclude with a big awards night in May. During this time, all children are invited to learn Scripture, earn patches, sing songs and play interactive games in classes with other kids their age; children are encouraged each week to learn a new Bible verse at home with their families. These classes are led by capable approved volunteers who work together to provide an atmosphere of year-to-year growth for your child. Also, each Master Clubs year is highlighted by our Sailboat Race and Pine Car Derby. At each of these events, the kids paint their own boats and build their own cars with the top winners taking home a big prize!
