The Church of the Cross community is love in action. Find a place to serve and be served within our variety of ministries designed to meet the needs of multiple generations and a variety of interests.

In the age of Covid-19 our usual DO SOMETHING SUNDAY events were reduced to a single outreach, that being the delivery of sack lunches to those in need of a meal in downtown Mansfield at lunchtime.  Thanks to the crew in these pictures who worked a day ahead of time (Saturday Morning) to prepare the lunches.
