Welcome To Cedar Cross!

 

Thank you for visiting our website. We hope it will give you insights and information into our church and its ministry.

I believe the United Methodist Church offers a distinctive and meaningful face to Christianity. Our denominational motto is Open Hearts, Open Minds and Open Doors. Because we believe that God’s love is the bedrock of faith, we value the inclusion of all people and we believe that when we embrace diversity, we embrace God. We stress the primacy of God’s grace in Jesus Christ. We affirm the reality of God in our everyday life through the power of the Holy Spirit. We believe that faith is more than dogma or assenting to a rational proposition, but is grounded in a relationship to God in Christ. We believe that relationships are primary, that life is interconnected and that we have a responsibility to each other and to the creation.

Recently our congregation voted overwhelmingly to become what is called in our denomination, A Reconciling Church.  This means that we welcome Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender (LGBT) people to fully participate in the life of our Church.  More than that, we actively support same sex marriage and the ordination of LGBT people.  In other words, we take the motto Open Hearts, Open Minds and Open Doors seriously

We are blessed at Cedar Cross United Methodist Church with people of all ages.  We have over 125 children in an incredible Vacation Bible School each year, we have an active youth program, and younger adults, too.  Most of all, Cedar Cross has a good and warm spirit.  People love each other here.  I think if you join us you will feel this spirit – I sincerely invite you to come.

Yours in Christ,

Jim Clarke, Pastor
