As the COVID vaccine continues to be distributed throughout Cook County, the Cook County Department of Public Health is surveying individual healthcare and essential workers who live or work in suburban Cook County, as well as suburban Cook County residents to understand their interest in receiving the vaccine.
The survey responses will be used to understand demand and build appropriate capacity to vaccinate. This is not a vaccine registry. It is a survey tool to assist in planning as additional vaccine is distributed. By completing the survey, individuals will be added to a list to receive updates on COVID-19 vaccine availability including the timing and scheduling.
COTC’s Annual Congregational Meeting will take place via Zoom, following worship on Sunday, January 31.  
All active members of the Church of the Cross have a voice and vote for this meeting. The congregation will be asked to receive the 2021 Budget and the 2020 Annual Report.
On Super Bowl Sunday, February 7th , Church of the Cross will be participating in the 2021 Souper Bowl of Caring.
MORE THAN 30 YEARS AGO, the Souper Bowl of Caring began with a simple prayer from a single youth group: “Lord, even as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those without a bowl of soup to eat.”
You can donate online or send a check to the office. Please choose the ‘Other’ option and put “Souper Bowl” in the comments if you donate online.
