Sunday Worship - 11 a.m.
Each Sunday, Spirit of the Cross desires to worship and praise God, listen to God's Word speak to us, and then leave encouraged and motivated to live out the values of the Reign of God and share God's love throughout the week. The blended worship service includes both traditional hymns and contemporary praise choruses, Scripture readings, a sermon, and communion. For children age four to the sixth grade, children's church is offered in the fellowship hall. The children are dismissed to children's church right before the Scripture readings and then rejoin the service in time for communion. A nursery is also provided during Sunday worship.
Wednesday Night Bible Study - 6:30 p.m.
Pastor Richard will begin a new, two-week Advent Bible Study on Wednesday, December 4.
