New on the Video page - Virtual Worship for August 2nd


Outdoor Worship for August 2nd has been cancelled due to inclement weather.

Sunday, July 26, 2020, goes down in history as the day Church of the Cross began the long road back from our Covid-19 shut-down to in-person (outdoor) worship in the shade of the trees next to the driveway and parking spaces adjacent to our church building.  Thanks goes to all who helped build this important milestone, including especially the task force which continues its work to enable both the outdoor and the eventual return to indoor worship services to be conducted in as low-risk an environment as we can possibly design.

As we planned the first ever in the history of the Lexington Church of the Cross outdoor "Drive-in" worship service as a first step toward returning to in-person Sunday services in our sanctuary, we made educated guesses as to how many folks in their cars would attend.  The turnout, when finally came the day and the sun rose on a near perfect Sunday morning, was easily (and wonderfully) twice what we had expected.


After many weeks of Wednesday evening "Virtual" Youth Group gatherings via the internet, our gang finally got together in person for a friendly game of church-lawn kick ball.  In the distance are players ready to intercept any ball headed for the creek !

United Methodists Support a Covenant to Resist Racism 

The laity and clergy of the United Methodist East Ohio Conference stand together to resist racism.  As baptized Christian disciples who ‘accept the freedom and power God gives us to resist evil, injustice, and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves,’ we reject the sin of white supremacy and white privilege; we denounce police brutality and racial profiling against people of color and we demand full protection of the civil rights for all of God’s children.

“We accept our responsibility as people of faith to work for the transformation of the world, our Church and our communities.  We covenant with each other, to learn, speak, and act in ways that lift-up and protect the rights and dignity of all of God’s people.”

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 be 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.
