In light of the health risks associated with coronavirus (COVID-19) and after careful review of the current rates of COVID-19 infections in Madison County, the pastors and board of directors do not believe it is wise, at this time, to set a definitive date regarding the return of in-person Sunday worship gatherings. An update will be given at the end of the May. Please see a more detailed report about this decision in the "events" section of this website.
Welcome to Spirit of the Cross Church! We are a church where you can be who God created you to be. We are a church where you can discover God’s unconditional love and unending grace.
