Presbyterian Church of the Cross
God has called us to witness to the loving Spirit of Christ to the people of this church and community. In our missions, we want to serve the people Jesus called "the least of these."
"What's special about our church? We're friendly, caring, sharing, and supportive. There are also many opportunities for ministry in the church and community. "
- Elaine Morehead
"Most churches say that everyone is welcome, but at Church of the Cross it's true."
- Bud Miles
Church of the Cross welcomes all people with dignity and respect. Our congregation consists of people who are diverse in every way imaginable – race, age, education, lifestyle, income... We celebrate this difference by affirming what we all have in common – our faith. We are dedicated to making a difference in our place and time. As we work to build community among a diverse people, we are a welcoming congregation, striving to recognize our sins, to forgive ourselves and others, and to create and maintain the loving bond that knits us together in one great tapestry of faith.
Presbyterian Church of the Cross has a long history of service to the community and continues its dedication to serving the needs of people, particularly the young. The strong youth soccer program and the thriving B Natural Academy of Music and the Arts for young children, and other community-related activities, speak loudly of our dedication. For 50 years, we have provided recreation, child care, community development and improvement, venues for voter registration, City Council meetings, meet the candidates forums, Phillips Avenue Area development project, police-community relations, etc. In short, people have joined together here to address common problems and build a stronger, more stable, safer community.
