God’s Work. Our Hands.

Cross of Christ will be participating in God’s Work Our Hands Sunday on September 9th.  We have a variety of projects planned for all ages, including young children.  We will be working on projects throughout the church from 9:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m., allowing you to spend some time doing God’s work before or after you worship. Even if you only have an hour to give, your time will make a difference.  We are looking forward to all of the congregation being able to participate!
