The Spirt of Cedar Cross

 

You first experience The Spirit of Cedar Cross as you come upon the church building sheltered under the tall evergreen trees on the church’s wooded campus that sets it apart from the bustle of the nearby highway. Here the reassuring words “open hearts, open minds and open doors” are etched in the bricks as you walk to the church doors.

The Spirit of Cedar Cross is our church renewing itself and moving forward. We are a diverse congregation and everyone is welcome. We cherish the 250-year-old liturgy of the Methodist Church and the sacrament of Holy Communion, yet our services are inclusive of our worship prayers for this present time. Our Cedar Cross pastor leads us in inspirational worship and he ministers to the congregation and to our faith community.

The Spirit of Cedar Cross is our children’s Sunday school, vacation bible school; middle and high school youth programs. We are fortunate to have talented, committed leadership to guide and challenge our youth. We also have our spirited Sunday morning adult bible study group.

The Spirit of Cedar Cross is our music ministries with chancel choir voices raised in song to the Glory of God and the ringing bells of BellCanto! At our early service, a dynamic Praise Band brings new music and a new dimension within our regular form of worship.

The Spirit of Cedar Cross is our ministry to the needs of all others in our faith community and around the world, including children, teen, women and homeless programs.

The Spirit of Cedar Cross is our Cedar Cross Cooperative Preschool. The shrieks of preschool children playing in the Centrum or running through the wooded church grounds are comforting sounds for our future. In their classes, the children are lovingly taught by dedicated teachers.

The Spirit of Cedar Cross is the activities at our church throughout the week: the busy hands of women quilting blankets for needy persons and organizations;  the United Methodist Women; the middle school youth club; potlucks; bake sales; committees working to enhance our church programs; and the Boy Scout troop charted to Cedar Cross.

The Spirit is everywhere around us at Cedar Cross.
