After our Sunday morning service on November 22, Church of the Cross is temporarily suspending all in-person worship gatherings at our church through mid-January. This difficult decision to step back from being together in our sanctuary for worship during Advent is prompted by the dramatic rise in the Covid-19 infection rate across our country and in our community, a rate which health officials believe will climb even more dangerously higher in December. Along with the surge in the pandemic over the weeks from Thanksgiving through New Year’s comes the increased health risk posed by indoor gatherings of any size, even those conducted among the careful precautions which we have implemented at Church of the Cross since moving back inside from outdoor worship in September. We will look forward to gathering together again (hopefully) just a few weeks from now and in the meantime we will continue to present here on our website and on our Church of the Cross Lexington YouTube Channel all of the messages, all of the songs and all of the prayers that would have been part of our in-person Christmas Season worship services. Please keep our pastor, our praise team and all who contribute to this on-going task in your prayers.
Here at last is the beautiful miracle child for whom we at the Church of the Cross have been lifting prayers since being born way too soon and way too tiny. After 112 days in the natal intensive care unit, little Evelyn is finally home with Mom and Dad as this picture perfect homecoming photo provided by the proud Grandpa and Grandma attests.

"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 Worship presents the same weekly sermons, scripture, prayer and songs of faith which would be a part of in-person worship. 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 different things to listen to on the audio page. You are also invited to visit our "Church of the Cross Lexington" YouTube Channel. There is 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. Our ZOOM Sunday School class on line at 11am remains unchanged.
