Coffee Hour

(after Service)

Beginning in September we will once again be enjoying coffee hour fellowship after worship on non-communion Sundays at Cross of Christ whenever there are no other previously-planned events.  Last year a number of our Members graciously volunteered to be coffee hour hosts (make coffee, bring treats and clean up) and Iíll plan on those same participants for the 2014-2015 season unless they let me know theyíre unable to help out this year.  But we are in need of more volunteers so if you are willing to be a coffee hour host/hostess, please contact me.  Iíd love to hear from you!
