Sanctuary Made Ready for Return to indoor, in-person Worship

 Outdoor Worship was nice when it was warm, and then came September.

 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.


"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.  Even as we return to Sunday worship in our sanctuary, Church of the Cross will continue to offer Virtual Worship for those in our congregation who are not ready to gather together in-person.  Virtual Worship will continue to present weekly sermons, scripture, prayer and songs of faith.  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 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.  Initially, there will be no in-person Sunday School and so our ZOOM Sunday School class on line at 11am will continue.

Make sure our financial support for the Church of the Cross continues uninterrupted even when we are not attending worship in-person.  Click HERE to go to the on-line Giving page and follow the instructions to send in your Tithes and Gifts electronically.

On Eagle's Wings

You will not fear the terror of the night, or the arrow that flies by day, or the pestilence that stalks in darkness, or the destruction that wastes at noonday.
