Cookie Walk at Cross of Christ will be after worship service in fellowship hall. We are again asking everyone to donate cookies or bars to this fundraiser for WELCA. The proceeds will be used to replace the carpet in the fellowship hall. 

Ushers Needed
Confirmation-aged students can use this activity to fulfill one of their service requirements for confirmation.

We are looking to expand the number of people willing to usher on Sundays. Families or friend groups may sign up for one Sunday or a group of Sundays. Most Sundays only require two ushers, which could be an adult and an older child or two adults. We are trying to fill the schedule through the end of the year, so multiple opportunities exist. Confirmation-aged students also could use this activity to fulfill one of their service requirements for confirmation. Please contact Jim Edwards at 896-2386 or the church office at 896-3102 or to request a Sunday for your family.
