Welcome to Our Worship"God is Spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth"
We would love your FEEDBACK...
Weekly Worship Service Times:
Weekly Sunday Children & Adult Study Times:
Our Worship Format:
Blended: A conglomerate of songs, hymns, and spiritual songs with a small praise team, an organist, and spoken responses for the given theme each week. The 5:00pm Saturday service and the Sunday 9:30 a.m. will be exactly the same.
Traditional: All across the U.S. Lutheran Church~Missouri Synod congregations use a set format (the liturgy) for worshipping. Cross follows that tradition using the Divine Service formats from Lutheran Worship.
Contemporary: At Cross we seek to speak the language of the culture in our geographic area. Although many would say it comes from the youth, the vast array of ages who watch any TV or use a computer or cell phone communicate in picture and text format. This service helps this culture deal with the issues of today in all aspects of our contemporary format of worship. We meet in a gym, the courts of praise, with a praise band leading us in modern songs.
Lord’s Supper: We commune together as Jesus asked his disciples to continue in at all the services on the weekends that contain the 1st, 3rd or 5th Sunday of the month. We want all people who will come to the Lord’s Supper to be prepared for this means of grace as those who are not prepared risk their very lives, as scripture says.
Promiseland Sunday School
"Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my
name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does
not welcome me but the one who sent me." Mark 9:37
Cross welcomes all children to Promiseland during the 9:15 worship time. Please come 15 minutes before the start of service to be sure your child gets properly checked in / registered. Let the children come and be a blessing to the teachers and the teachers to the children. Make it your child’s best hour all week. (NOTE: Please enter at Fellowship Hall/ Church Entrance)
In Promiseland, the Bible is creatively taught and expressed. The Bible’s truths are presented in relevant ways. It is a place where shepherding children is intentional. Kids are safe to be who they are, and ask questions. It is a place where discovering God’s truth is FUN!
New Schedule Starting 9/9/2012
To register each week: For both PROMISELAND SESSIONS - come thru our main Sanctuary church/Fellowship Hall entrance. Turn right down the hall toward the Chapel – then right again down the stairs to the Promiseland registration area. (Questions - see one of our “green tagged” greeters for guidance).
