Watch our Service on Facebook

From Pastor Dana O’Brien – Saturday, March 21, 2020…

Hi everyone,

If you’ve got a virtual worship place, that’s wonderful. But if your congregation isn’t worshiping, I invite you to join us at Cross of Glory on Sunday morning via Facebook live. Click here to go to our Cross of Glory Lutheran Church Facebook site and join us promptly at 9:30. The service will be on the screen, so be prepared to participate by speaking the prayers and confession aloud, sharing your own prayers and other comments, and singing the songs. 

So for those of you who aren’t on Facebook, sign up before the next service. 

And please extend us a bit of grace. We’re trying to be good models of our governor’s shelter in place order, so we’re streaming worship with just two people. 

The Order of Worship for the April 5, 2020 service is available here.

Shortly after each service, we will add the video of the service to the Sermons and Service Videos area (click here) in the “Common Links” area of the web page.

Coronavirus Message from Pastor Dana – March 16, 2020

Hi everyone,

Thanks to all of you who helped make yesterday’s worship work!! We were able to transition from all of us gathering, to just a few present and most online via Facebook, to what we’ll see in the future — all of us on Facebook. We also learned that we are able to do our music without running into any online streaming problems. 

So starting this Sunday (March 22), and for as long as necessary, our Sunday worship will occur only online via Facebook. Make sure you are sitting in front of your computers at 9:30 each Sunday to participate in worship (and I do mean participate). 

Also, all other COG in-person meetings are cancelled. That means no more Lenten midweek meals or other COG meetings at this time. (We are a polling place on Tuesday, and it looks like that is still on.) At this point, the plan is to have someone at COG for a couple hours each day, although that may change at any time so please feel free to contact me on my cell at 414-916-3241.

 I recognize that all this uncertainty makes it all the more important that we stay connected in whatever ways we can. So we’ll try to take advantage of the interactive features of Facebook to keep us all connected during Sunday worship. And we will try to use technology to meet in other ways — more info on that later. 

I also realize that this is a scary time for all of us. Our health, our finances, our relationships — pretty much our entire “normal” way of life — are changing very quickly in very challenging ways. We all know that we are facing some difficult times ahead…
