We hope you’ll find our site informative, but the best way to get to know about us is to join us for our worship gathering on Sundays at 10:30. We know that stepping inside a church building is a big decision, so we try to make our Sunday services as welcoming to the newcomer as we can. We’ve included some answers to frequently asked questions below.
Have more questions? We’d love to answer them – give us a call at 504-466-4922 or fill out our contact form.
What’s the Sunday schedule?
- 9:15 am – Connect Groups (Adults & Children)
We have Men, Women, and Children’s Connect Groups that meets at 9:15 on Sundays to study the Bible and learn more about what it means to follow Jesus. You don’t have to be a Bible scholar to attend, you just need to be interested in learning about Jesus. Can’t make it to a Connect Group on Sunday? No problem! Click here to learn about our other groups that meet throughout the week.
- 10:30 am – Worship
We gather at 10:30 am in the sanctuary upstairs to celebrate who God is and what He has done in our lives and throughout the world. These services include music ranging from some old hymns to newer songs you might hear on the radio. We also take time to read the Bible aloud and pray during our worship services. Nursery care is available downstairs for our babies and PreK age children. We ask that children of school age participate in worship with their families.
How do I get there?
Our address is 3233 Loyola Drive (map).
From I-10, take Exit 221 for Loyola Drive and go about 6 blocks north. We’re located on the west side of the road.
From West Esplanade Ave, turn south on to Loyola Drive at the Ochsner/Wal-Mart intersection. Go just south of Wentwood Playground.
How long does the service last?
Most of our services and Bible studies last about 1 hour.
Where do I bring my children?
What should I wear?
You don’t have to wear a suit or “your Sunday best,” although that’s certainly okay! Flip-flops or sandals are great. Shorts are definitely fine in the summer. Mainly, dress modestly, but don’t feel the pressure to dress up.
Will I look like other people at the church?
Yes. Crossroads includes attenders from less than a year old to senior citizens. We value multiple generations and multiple ethnicities worshipping together. We celebrate that God created a diverse world on purpose. Race, finances, and family background shouldn’t divide us or prevent us from worshipping together. Jesus is Lord and Savior of all people, and one day all worshippers of God will stand together (Revelation 7:9-10). We want to start practicing now because we think it is honoring to God and points people to Jesus!
