Frequently Asked Questions

Questions? Everyone has them and they should. We hope this page helps you find some answers. If not, don’t hesitate to contact us.

How do I know where to go when I arrive at the church?
Greeters will be at all doors to help you find where you need to go.  Our Christmas Service will be held in the Worship Center, which is the large white portion at the west end of the main building.  There are two entrances (one facing south and one facing north) that are the closest doors.  There’s also an entrance facing the north parking lot near 17th Ave, and another facing 8th St by the circle drive.


What time should I plan to arrive?
Holiday services tend to be well attended, so we suggest you arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the start time.
What should I wear?

You will see a little of everything!  From little girls in glittery dresses, dress pants and ties, to jeans and sweatshirts, and everything in between.  There’s no expectation of how you should be dressed.

Can my kids sit with me during the service?
Yes, children are always welcome in our services.  On December 24 at the 3 pm and 5 pm service there will be a special Children’s message, too.

If your children need more space or just need a break, you may choose to view the service from our Family/Cry Room. The nursery is also available during all services for infants through age 5.

Can I take communion at Church of the Cross?
We practice an open communion. For those who claim Jesus as their Lord and Savior, you are welcome.
What's the deal with candles at the Christmas Services?

It is a tradition in many churches to include a song by candlelight during the Christmas service, usually during the last song.

How long will the service last?
You can expect to be here just over an hour.
Are all the services the same? Even the one on December 19?

All four the services will be basically the same, and will feature Christmas music led by praise band with lyrics on the screens in front, a message (sermon), communion and candlelight.  The only difference is that the 3 pm and 5 pm service on Monday, 12/24 will have a children’s message.
