Church of the Cross is a growing community of faith where Jesus Christ changes lives.

We welcome the Holy Spirit so all will discover their God-given gifts and delight in sharing the love of Christ in the community and the world. Grace so pervades the atmosphere of the church that questions, doubts and fears can be honestly expressed and every person is loved, respected, nurtured and celebrated.

Gus Message.jpg

It’s World Communion Sunday—October Seventh, Two Thousand and Eighteen—another opportunity for Christians near and far to celebrate the universal meal instituted by our Lord and Savior: Jesus the Christ.

This special day in October offers congregations a distinctive opportunity to experience Holy Communion in the context of the Global Community; a time when Christians in many cultures break bread and share the cup to remember Jesus Christ; His death and resurrection, and His return as the King of Kings.



…Delight in sharing the love of Christ in the community and the world...

That’s an excerpt from our church’s Vision. One way to expand our reach in the community is through video. We would like to take our worship experience up a notch by live streaming it to the web. In order to do this, we need a team of volunteers who love the world of technology and want to use their gifts to serve our Lord. We’re putting together a “Tech Team” to accomplish this.

Sound interesting? Contact Joyce Evenden, Emma Baker, or the church office to learn more.

Sunday sermons are available as podcasts. You can subscribe through the iTunes Store or the RSS link on the Worship Podcast page of this website. You can query the sermon podcasts for particular topics such as "faith" or "salvation" or "fear" or "hope"? Scroll to the bottom of the Worship Podcast page and search for your topic of choice. It may take a minute, but a list of podcasts on that topic will appear (as well as other references throughout the website).
