With Arms Wide Open!
No, it's not just a popular song by Creed. It truly reflects our philosophy of welcoming others at Cross of Life! In fact, it's part of our Mission Statement – painted on our walls, printed in our materials, and spoken out loud in worship.
At Cross of Life, our focus is to Worship ... Learn .... Serve ... Invite! And we invite you now to check out the rest of our website to get a feel for what we're all about!
If you'd like to learn more about us, we encourage you to ...

Finally and perhaps most importantly ... join us in worship! We gather together on Saturdays at 5:00 p.m. and Sundays at 8:30 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. from September to June. In the summer we worship on Saturdays at 5:00 p.m. and Sundays at 8:30 a.m. & 10:00 a.m. For more detailed information on our Worship services and offerings – such as Sunday School classes and Adult Education opportunities – check out our Visitor Information page. We think you'll enjoy your visit and will see for yourself why so many people are happy to be a part of the faith family that IS Cross of Life!
