Immediately following Worship on October 13 th , we are holding a Town Hall Meeting to discuss COTC Safety & Emergency procedures. 
The meeting will include important information as to where emergency items are located, as well as best escape routes if needed. Coffee/Fellowship will follow the Town Hall Meeting. 

It may not seem that long, but Church of the Cross has been bringing hope in the name of Jesus Christ for 60 years! 
Sue Letterer has agreed to chair an anniversary committee to plan our celebration in 2020… and Sue needs help. If you are a history buff, or simply interested in being a part of planning our celebration for our 60 th anniversary, please let Sue know right away. 

Session would like you to know Cheryl Wilkins is participating in the Crop Hunger Walk on October 20 th . She invites you to join her at the walk or sponsor her. If you are interested in supporting, check with her in person or go to this link:

A note from Cheryl: " Let's fight against hunger together! CROP Hunger Walks are community-wide events that bring people together in a common mission: helping hungry people at home and around the world. I'm excited to be part of it and would love to have you join me on this journey. The steps we take - and the funds we raise - will make a real impact!"
Pastor Julie will be having Café Hours on Thursday mornings from 9:00‑11:00 am at Tous Les Jours (20 E Golf Rd, corner of Roselle & Golf Rd & same strip mall as Office Depot). This time is a way to be visibly out in the community and provide time for members to visit the pastor away from the church. Stop in to say hi, enjoy a cup of coffee, and share a prayer if you like.

  • Condiments
