Will this be your first time at Cross?Here are a few things about our Sunday Service that will make you feel more “In-the-Know.”

 

Greeter's Table

Stop by the Greeter's Table just inside the Sanctuary. Please take a moment to let us know who you are and put on a name tag so the Pastors and others can better welcome you during your visit.

 

CommunionCommunion is open to all baptized Christians who believe in Jesus Christ. Certain church staff and participants receive communion first, then the congregation will be invited up by pew. Red is wine; white is grape juice. If you’re unable to get around easily, wait in your pew. When one of the lines is done, get an usher’s attention and communion will be brought to you.

 

KIDS: Activities, Moving Around & the Children’s SermonFairly early in the service is the Children's Sermon. All children are welcome to come forward; if they’re nervous, a family member can sit with them. Children generally stay through most of entire service. (Students and Sunday School teachers leave just after the Sermon.)  They can work on activities or even read as long as they stay relatively quiet. (No games with noise, please.)  If you have a fussy child, there’s also a nursery area in the back on the pulpit side where you can take your children and still hear the service. Don’t worry: We won’t mind if you move around during the service.

"Trespasses" or "Debts"?During the Lord’s Prayer, we say “trespasses.”  We also rise and hold hands with those around us.
 

Three HymnalsWe use three different hymnals, indicated by initials next to the number. For example, TFBF #135 is in the “This Far By Faith” hymnal. 


“Sharing of the Peace”... Is the Service Over?Sharing of the Peace lasts a few minutes. Most people walk around and greet people, but it’s not required. Listen for the call to return to your pew.

We May Be Lutherans, But...A liberating gospel message may lead to the spirit breaking in during service. Don’t be surprised if you hear a few "Amens" and "Praise the Lords" during the service.  If the spirit moves you, join in. (Sitting quiet is okay, too.)
