January 2020 Announcements

Email Scam Warning

It makes me sad that I have to warn others of this scam. Please be wise and double check any out of ordinary requests. Loving your neighbor can be stolen by thieves.

Apparently there is an email scam making the rounds where they use the names of pastors and other nonprofit leaders (but a different email address) to ask for money - usually in the form of gift cards purchased online.

I mean - while I would love if you made a donation to support the ministry I serve, if you get an odd request like that from me, please verify with a phone call or a direct message here.

In fact, any time if you get an unexpected and unusual email from someone you know - whether a request for money, a link, or an attachment - before you click or respond always:

1) check the actual email address (not just the "name" on the email)
2) verify the email in another platform (a text message, or private message, etc)

Baptism Blessing Sunday

Please join us on Sunday, January 12th at 10:15 as we celebrate the baptisms of 2019.



New Member Sunday

Philippians 1:3–6

3I thank my God every time I remember you, 4constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you, 5because of your sharing in the gospel from the first day until now. 6I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ.

       If you or someone you know has interest in joining Cross of Christ the plan is to officially welcome new members on Sunday, the 19th of January during worship at 10:15 a.m. There will be a reception in your honor following the worship service.
