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. - The Final Days of Jesus
The season of Lent culminates in the observance of Holy Week, a remembrance of the final week of Jesus that concluded with his death and resurrection. In this new Lenten Bible study, Pastor Richard will take a look at each day of that fateful, world-changing, and life-changing week. By following in the footsteps of Jesus during his final days in Jerusalem, we will be inspired and challenged to live the Kingdom values of love, peace, and humility.
Church 101 - Four Week Class - Beginning March 24
Church 101: Discovering Church Membership at Spirit of the Cross will be offered in one hour segments over four consecutive Sundays beginning on March 24. The classes will begin at 1 p.m. in the sanctuary or fellowship hall classroom (to be determined later). Church 101 covers the basics of salvation, the sacraments, what Spirit of the Cross believes and why, and explains our church’s history, ministry and polity. The class has been revised to include basic information about the United Church of Christ.
For those interested in joining Spirit of the Cross, these classes are a requirement. However, if you want to attend just to find out more about our church, you are more than welcome to attend. We never put anyone on the spot about joining. We will be happy that you simply wanted to find out more. And if you are already a member and would like to take the classes as a refresher, you are welcome too. It is common for members to attend to show support for those considering membership. For more information, contact Pastor Richard or Associate Pastor C George.
