Serving Opportunities at Cross

Care Ministries

The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body. Now the body is not made up of one part but of many. In fact, God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.

Corinthians 12:12-27

Serving at Cross

We gain far more than we give through our involvement in the Lord’s mission. As we serve one another and live God’s mission, we grow together in greatness and in grace. Trusting in His promise and lovingly responding to His assignments, Cross is carrying out that mission by His power.
