Sunday Worship - 11 a.m.
The worship service follows a traditional format, observes all the Christian seasons (Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, etc.), and lasts approximately one hour. The service features both hymns and praise choruses led by praise team singers. Spirit of the Cross extravagently welcomes all to weekly communion and the preaching is hope-filled and progressive. Children's Church and a nursery ministry are offered during Sunday worship.
For those not comfortable in attending on-site worship, Spirit of the Cross worship services are live-streamed on the church's YouTube channel.

Children’s Church is held each Sunday for children in grades 1-6. After the opening prayer and during the opening hymn, the children are dismissed to meet their teachers at the back of the sanctuary. Children's Church is held in the fellowship hall classrooms. The children return to the sanctuary during the song after the sermon and before communion.
For newborns and pre-school ages, Spirit of the Cross provides a nursery during Sunday morning worship. Upon arrival, a greeter will be happy to direct parents to the nursery area to check-in their children. The nursery ministry is available pre-service to the worship service benediction.

Spirit of the Cross is a hugging and handshaking church. But please know if you are uncomfortable with hugging or shaking hands, simply extend your fist for a fist bump. Everyone will understand and be respectful of your wishes.
There are three options to receive communion. If you choose to receive communion (no one will force you to do so), choose the option that you are most comfortable with. The pastors always explain the three communion options.
