Worship at Presbyterian Church of the Cross (PCOC) is traditional and welcoming to diverse people of all ages. Based in the Reformed Tradition, the worship experience includes the reading and preaching of the Scriptures as well as expressions of prayer and praise. Visitors are welcome! Information about our church is available in each pew. There is also a brochure with details on how to join PCOC.
The participation of children is valued in worship. Secured child care is provided for children up through age four, if desired.
We celebrate ‘”Open Communion” which means that if you are a baptized member of another Christian denomination you are welcome to share this sacrament with us.
The words of Institution from William Barclay create the setting for this sacrament:
Come, not because you are strong, but because you are weak.
Come, not because any goodness of your own gives you a right to come,
Come, because you love the Lord a little and would like to love Him more.
Come, because you realize that he first loved you, and gave himself for you.
Lift up your hearts and minds above your cares and fears, and let this bread and wine be for you the token and pledge of the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Spirit, all meant for you, if you will receive them in humble faith.
Communion is generally served on a monthly basis.
Music is a central part of worship with an exceptional program of music adding depth and vitality to our experience of worship together.
