Announcing a NEW way to make sure our financial support for the Church of the Cross continues uninterrupted even if we are not attending worship in-person on Sunday morning. Click HERE to go to the NEW on-line Giving page and follow the instructions to on-line your Tithes and Gifts!
"Virtual" Church of the Cross is here as we together do our part to mitigate the contagion of the virus which is sweeping around the world. "Virtual" Church of the Cross, for now, means that we will not be gathering together in-person for Sunday morning worship, but we will be sharing together, via this website, weekly sermons, scripture, prayer and songs of faith. There will be both new Audio and Video features every week, both on Sundays and at mid-week. To access these features on this website go to the top of this page, click on "Watch & Listen" and select Video or Audio. There will be things to watch on the video page and often times different things to listen to on the audio page every week. You are also invited to visit our "Church of the Cross Lexington" YouTube Channel. There will a new Playlist for each new Sunday Worship. Just start the Playlist for this Sunday's date and it will play the entire service in the correct order automatically.
At the United Methodist Church of the Cross of Lexington we care for your family and extend it, nurturing community through a variety of programs, as a multi-generational close-knit congregation which cares. Build your family’s foundation of faith at the Lexington Church of the Cross and see where God takes your vision.
When we resume in-person worship after the current world-wide health crisis, all are invited to join us in-person at 9:30 on Sunday mornings. We are on West Main (Route 97 west) in Lexington, Ohio. Become part of a welcoming congregation which serves our community and leads others to Christ.
