Feb 28: Annual Meeting at 10:30 am

Please join us for our annual meeting on Sunday, February 28 at 10:30 (right after worship). Our chili cook-off is on hiatus this year, but we’ll still have a fun time as we look back on all that God accomplished at Cross of Glory in 2020. We’ll also discuss and vote on our 2021 budget, elect council members and do some other other church business. We’re still working on the format, but hope to do a combination of in-person and zoom. Our quorum is 12, but we’re hoping we’ll have a lot more people than that.

Feb. 14: In-Person Worship Resumed

Will County has moved back to Phase 4, so we are now able to worship in-person with up to 50 people. We resumed in-person worship at Cross of Glory on Sunday, February 14. Online worship will continue, so those feeling more comfortable staying home can do so.

Because we’ll be limiting the number of worshippers and taking other COVID precautions to make our worship experience as safe as possible, things won’t look exactly like they did last March. (Who remembers what things looked like last March anyway.) However, we can be certain of this – God will continue to show up big time! And, of course, that’s true regardless of whether you’re in the building or watching via Facebook or YouTube live. God always shows up!

While we’ll have to be flexible so we can adjust to changes in CDC and Illinois guidance, here’s an overview of what to expect:

The first three readings are from Matthew, and the last two readings from John.

This agricultural parable has an important message. What do you think it means to “remain” in Jesus? What kind of “fruit” do you think you are supposed to bear?
