We Celebrate The Creator

The Church of the Cross is a community of Christ-imitators where people are respected, loved, and called to God-honoring excellence as they serve the Lord and others in His name.

We are Rooted in the Past, Sheltering the Present, Reaching Out to the Future, and Empowered By the God of the Ages.


Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Billy Graham

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis

By |July 9th, 2020|Life at the Cross|

There is an old Celtic Blessing that sits on my desk that I look at nearly every day. O God, make clear to us each road, Make safe for us each step, When we stumble, hold us, When we fall, lift us up, When we are hard-pressed with evil, deliver us, And at last bring us to Your glory! As many times as I have read this prayer, it has taken on a much deeper meaning in this new COVID season. God has clearly opened up new roads and given me the wisdom and courage to walk down them.

Choose His Side

By |June 29th, 2020|

Lately, there  are many places to “pick a side”. A lot of trying to figure out the right answer to everything. The virus brought with it several choices- to grow stronger as a country or to let it start to destroy us.  My hope was that, just as our country had done before, we would pull together in a crisis more than ever. Initially, it seemed we were doing just that!  We focused on the positives coming from slowing down and being at home and saw the good that was being created even out of a bad situation. We saw ways God was working in families and lives that could not have happened at any other time. But there also was a restlessness that seemed to creep in, and then every day became another day to pick a side. You could choose to wear gloves or not, wear a mask or not, speak up or be silent, protest or not, and even pick a political side. I found myself very frustrated and misunderstood and unable to know when and how to express what I truly valued. Even agreeing with an article could be taken the wrong way.

"Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own.” Philippians 3:12 (ESV) Dear Saints, This verse means a lot to different people, I find in it a challenge to “work out your own (my) salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you (me), both to will and to work for his good pleasure.” Phil 2:12-13.

Sometimes Alleluia

By |June 17th, 2020|

Sometimes when I wake up with the blues, I like to sip a cup of black coffee before praying and softly play old-school Gospel tunes. One of my all-time favorites is the song titled “Sometimes Alleluia” by Chuck Girard. “Sometimes Alleluia” evokes memories from my youth in Puerto Rico, when

Ask and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you.
