Capital Campaign Info – March 17, 2019

Each Sunday during worship, we pray for what God is doing through us and through this appeal. And then we send that prayer out via email so we can all be involved, even those of us who weren’t able to attend worship on Sunday. Here is this week’s prayer. We hope that you will make it a part of your devotional practice this week.

Gracious Lord, as we continue to move forward in our capital appeal, we thank you for the daily reminders of Your work that You have entrusted to us. Fill each of us with strength and focus to achieve all that You see for the future of your church. We also ask that You bless the land on which this building stands. May it continue to provide a place to gather for worship and fellowship in Your name. Amen.

Capital Campaign Kick Off

On Sunday, February 17th, Cross of Glory kicked off our Embracing GOD’S Vision capital appeal. The goal is to raise $150,000 over the next three years to help pay down our mortgage and make sure this building, a valuable resource for ministry and mission, remains safe, welcoming and in good working order. But the theme encompasses much more than money. It is our response to all the blessings we have received from God and our commitment to live as God’s missional church in this place.

Each Sunday during worship, we pray for what God is doing through us and through this appeal. And then we send that prayer out via email so we can all be involved, even those of us who weren’t able to attend worship on Sunday. Here is this week’s prayer. We hope that you will make it a part of your devotional practice this week.

Good and Gracious God, we praise You for all of the blessings we currently have and continue to receive. As we prepare to focus on the Capital Campaign, we ask for Your guidance, grace and concentration. Loving Father, bless us with generous hearts so that we can all be united with the mission of our church as our goal. We ask all of this in your Heavenly name, Amen.

Jeff Warner Kicks Off Our Capital Campaign – February 17, 2019

Holy Communion Class is for 2nd graders and up. This is a six week class offered in the early part of the year. In Holy Communion our children will learn about Communion and the Lord’s Supper – why we do it, what it means, and how we do it. These classes take place on Monday evenings. It is important that you register your child as soon as possible so we can have the correct amount of supplies for all the students. There is no fee but you may do a free will donation towards our Children/Youth Ministry.

Home Chalk Blessing

A part of church history is the custom of blessing homes at the New Year. A family would hold a short service of prayer to ask God’s blessing on their dwelling and on all who live, work with and visit them.

Take chalk and mark above the entrance or on the doorstep of your front door as follows: 20 + C M B + 19

While doing the marking, someone says:
“The magi of old, known as
C: Caspar,
M: Melchior, and
B: Balthasar
followed the star of God’s Son who came to dwell among us
20: two thousand
19: and nineteen years ago.

+: May Christ bless our home
+: and remain with us throughout this coming year. “

Prayer of Blessing
Holy God, you revealed your beloved Son to every nation by the guidance of a star. Bless this house and all who inhabit it. Make it a place of welcome and peace to all who enter. Fill us with the light of Christ, so that our concern for others will reflect your love. We ask this through Jesus Christ ,our Savior and Lord. Amen.

If you wish, you can also read a passage from Scripture (John 1:1-14 is always good) and/or end with the Lord’s Prayer.

C M B above the door also stands for Christus Mansionem Benedicat, which is Latin for “May Christ Bless this House.

2018 Children’s Christmas Program Video

This year’s program featured a lion, the “king of beasts”, humbled by the arrival of the King of Kings. We saw that, just maybe, it didn’t start out as a “Silent” night.
