Cross of Grace

A community of grace sharing God's love with no strings attached.

Sunday Worship:
8:30am & 10:45am

Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA)

"Ministry is about connection, one to another, about sharing in suffering and joy, about persons meeting persons with no pretense or secret motives. It is about shared life, confessing Christ not outside the relationship but within it. This, I learned, was living the gospel"
– Andrew Root, Revisiting Relational Youth Ministry


GRACE GROUPS

Our Grace Groups small-group ministry appeals to a wide variety of interests. Previous topics have included a parenting/mothering group, a marriage enrichment class, a discussion about aging and end-of-life issues, a beginner/intermediate yoga class, and a woodworking experience. Each group meets for 5 weeks, takes a break, and then new groups are offered. Grace Group evenings also include a homework room w/ tutors, and a staffed nursery for kids 0-5. Food is available each week.

CROSSROADS

Are you curious about what it means to be a disciple and "Partner in Mission" at Cross of Grace? Do you want to know more about the Lutheran church? Do you wish you knew how you could 'plug in' more to the mission and ministry of our congregation? The CrossRoads class is your invitation to all of these things.

CrossRoads is our take on new member education and it's a fun, casual way to learn about all of the above before making a commitment to the partnership so many of us share. It's not a test to pass. It's not a hoop through which you must jump. It's a great way to get to know more about the people and ministries here.

Four week sessions on Wednesday evenings are usually offered in both the spring and fall. A Sunday morning session is offered occasionally as well, for those who can't make a midweek class. Look for details in the newsletter or call the church office for more information.
