Kingdom constantly is the name of our kids ministry and it is sensational. Our students have a variety of teachers, events, and wonderful challenges to get them to engage with the Word of God and to grow. Our goal is to create a foundation that will last a lifetime. We also are constantly trying to find new ways to encourage them to engage with the lessons and invite their friends.
Our Ignite Youth ministry encourages students to buy into the mission and vision of our church. We strive to provide a safe environment where students can explore their faith while being challenged to grow in our Youth Group setting. We urge our students to help their peers find a sense of belonging at Center Cross COG by building meaningful relationships. We hope to get all of our students to serve the local church and love their community. We also have events throughout the year that connect our students and strengthen our community within our Youth Ministry.
Sunday School begins each Sunday morning at 10:00. This is a time for our adults to be strengthened together by going through individual book studies. Our teacher is one of the best known men in our community, George Tallent, and he has a knack for engaging and explaining at any level.
Our Sunday experience is designed to be beneficial for the most seasoned of believers, new converts, and even those who do not share our belief in Christ. You will find the best worship music in our area and an environment that is open for you to engage with God in your own way. Pastor Jake and his team engage with the text and make the scriptures come alive in new and dynamic ways. You won't want to miss a moment!
Family Training Hour
On Wednesday evenings at 7:00 we offer classes for all ages. This includes a class for adults. At times this is broken up between men and women and at others we are all together. We go through various book and topical studies to find ways to help you face everyday life and to foster a community of love.
OUR MINISTRY OPPORTUNITIES
If you would like to serve in any of these areas please reach out to Pastor Jake.
Assisted Living Ministry
Throughout the month volunteers in this ministry go to various assisted living facilities to provide fellowship, prayer, and a short church service for the residents and employees.
Volunteers in our Nursery (0 to 2) get the opportunity to shepherd and care for our littlest ones during weekend worship services. They check in and care for babies and toddlers.
Kingdom Kidz & Ignite Youth
Volunteers in Youth (middle and high school) get the opportunity to build and foster relationships with students, ministering them through the teaching of Scripture, worship and intentional discipleship. They greet students, set up events, and lead small groups.
Volunteers on our Connections team get the opportunity to help our guests and regular attendees connect with what God is doing at Center Cross COG.
Volunteers on our Worship team use their gifts and abilities to minister to the church body through the expression of worship to the Lord through music. They lead worship at weekend services and special ministries or events that may happen throughout the week.
Volunteers on the Prayer Team are available to pray with people both during and after our weekend services. They also commit to praying for our church and our community together.
Volunteers on our Hospitality team are some of the first people our attendees come in contact with at weekend services. They greet people before services, help people find seats, park cars, make coffee, work in Connection Booth and serve communion.
Volunteers on the Production team keep things running smoothly during our weekend services and at events so that our attendees have a great experience meeting with the Lord and the church. They run the lighting, sound, and put up slides for services.
Lawn Care & Maintenance
Volunteers on the Lawn Care & Maintenance team keep things running around our building and help our facility look pristine. This includes everything from landscaping to painting, to changing light bulbs.
Volunteers on this team work one day out of the month to ensure their area is at tip top shape. From vacuuming to doing bathrooms there is an area for you to take charge of.
