WISDOM is Cross & Crown’s ministry to and for women of all walks of life to serve one another, our church and our community. Throughout the year various topics of interest to women are addressed such as health, prayer, etc. A yearly retreat is observed where women are able to enjoy a weekend of refreshment and spiritual growth. Other activities geared to foster growth, service and fellowship are planned throughout the year.
Our nursery is available during regular scheduled services for children from birth to two years of age. Qualified workers tend to the needs of your baby with loving care while introducing them to the life of our church. We want your baby’s first experience to be warm and loving. While your baby is in the nursery (s)he will have stories read, play games, enjoy toys, and have songs sung. We believe that even the youngest of our congregation can experience the love of God. When you drop off your baby you will be given a number. If your baby needs you during the service, a number will appear in the box to the right of the overhead screen in the sanctuary.
The men's ministry is open to all the men of Cross & Crown. Throughout the year, various activities and events are planned to enhance the relationships of our men. These include yearly retreats, conferences in the area, a family picnic and occasional fellowships. Other information about M.M.A. can be requested through our church office.
Our Sunday School is an important start to your child's life in Christ. We provide teachers who take their position seriously and prayerfully meet your child's needs. Children ages 3 through 6th grade are dismissed, with prayer, following the Praise & Worship every Sunday morning. SonLight Clubs gather during our mid-week service. Our clubs are offered to children age 3 through grade 6 and meet from September through June. Bible verse memorization, games, crafts, Bible study, worship and prayer time are all part of our clubs. Children are given awards coinciding with different principles they are taught and have mastered. FITS (Fun in The Son) meets during our midweek service from June through August. This is a more relaxed time for the children. There are games, crafts, videos, and snacks.
We practice the truth of Scripture that all believers are to be witnesses for Christ. (Acts1:8; Matt. 28:19,20) We encourage all believers to share their faith with their immediate and extended family. We also promote the developing of a love for the unbeliever so that genuine attempts will be made to share the gospel with neighbors, co-workers, and other acquaintances.
As a church we are also involved in supporting missionaries and other ministries that do the work that we are unable to do otherwise. We help support missionaries locally and in various parts of the world. Our support is financial and in prayer. A minimum of ten percent of the church's income goes to outreach efforts. We recognize that this is a vital way to fulfill the command of Christ to "go and make disciples".
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as ransom to many.
