CrossU

CrossU is a ministry for our current college students as well as our college bound high school graduates. Our discipleship mission is multi-faceted in providing our students a direct link to their church community while they are away at school. The first steps into adulthood and advanced studies often brings frustration and uncertainty. This ministry exists to equip students with the comforting and familiar encouragements poured forth from the pews and pulpit of The Cross. Students receive weekly encouragement directly from Pastor Tommy as well as weekly sermon summaries and audio links. Each semester the students receive care packages which include treats and a personalized message from Pastor Tommy. As a rapidly expanding ministry our students can look forward to additional discipleship opportunities they will be able to share with fellow students on campus. Click here for more info…

Kids at the Cross

Our mission, to make disciples, is not age dependent. We are committed to providing Bible study, worship, fellowship, and activities to young people (appropriate to each age group).  It is our desire at The Cross to provide fun and meaningful opportunities for children to know the Lord and grow their relationship with Him.   This is why we offer many opportunities for children to worship and learn in an age appropriate environment.  It is also our desire to help parents teach their children how to worship together as a family.

Men of the Cross

It is not an overstatement to say that the welfare of God’s people rises and falls on the men among them. And the unfortunate absence of men who “stand in the gap” is all too common. Today’s church will rise to the standards of their Lord only if it has men who are loving leaders, effective teachers, and godly examples.  We at The Cross are committed to discipling the men of our church, to provide them guidance in growing more like Christ, and to forge bonds among them that will promote accountability to godly living.

Women of the Cross

Cross Community Church women’s ministries are focused on helping women grow more deeply in their love of Jesus, grow in their knowledge of the Bible, and get connected with one another with the ultimate goal of creating disciples of Jesus who make other disciples.

We recognize that women are vital to a healthy church. In the Bible, it was the women who stuck by Jesus as he died on the cross. It was the women who discovered that Jesus rose from the dead and told the disciples – the Bible shows that women faithfully served and participated in the early church.  The Bible also shows us that women are recognized as equal image bearers of God, with distinct roles.

Women’s Ministries at The Cross are open to all women of any age and stage of life – typical activities include Bible Studies, Fellowship Breakfasts, service opportunities, small group fellowships, holiday events, etc.

Sports Ministry

Our objective in Sports Ministries at The Cross is to provide fellowship and relationship building for the entire church body and friends.  Sports Ministries moves us beyond our comfort zones by playing and interacting with those we may not personally know well, thus expanding and strengthening our community.

Everyone is welcomed!  Sports provides an opportunity to meet and develop relationships with those beyond the walls of our church.  We have an opportunity to share in the Great Commission – sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the lost world.  We also do this in word (our language both on and off the field of sport), in deed (how we play the game) and in the way we relate and fellowship one to another.

Cross Community Quilters

The Cross Quilters gather to make quilts in the name of Jesus for extreme needs for convalescent, children, foster care, missionary and prison ministries. Their purpose is to continue to learn new ministry quilts and to fellowship together as women. Their primary goal is to be a witness to the unsaved and encouragers of the body of Christ through the gifts of our quilts.

We will be making beginner or intermediate quilts for ministry.  This group is not intended to provide you with expert quilting skills.  There are many classes for that.  We are here to comfort and serve others with our quilts because he first served and comforted us.
