You are invited to Worship and Celebrate The Gospel with us!

 

SUMMER SCHEDULE   ONE SERVICE AT 10:00 AM

Service Times Each Sunday:

8:45-9:45 First Service

10:00-10:45 Sunday School

11:00-12:00 Second Service

Our First Service features our Praise Band while the second service has our Chancel Choir.  We have a wonderful music program at Cedar Cross; it is a special feature that enhances our awareness of God’s presence and grace and the invitation to follow and grow in Christ.

Along with our vocal choir and our Bell Choir, many fine vocal and instrumental musicians provide special music throughout the year to help deepen our connection with God and each other.

Unless otherwise announced on this web site and through our Cedar Crossings email, sent out each week, Sunday worship occurs at 8:45 and 11:00 am.  During the summer we have one service at 10:00 am.  Most Sunday services include the Sacrament of Communion.

Our Cedar Crossings email (hard copies also available) includes updates about church events and articles from the pastor and others. Call or email the church office (425-338-7845) if you would like to receive Cedar Crossings.

During the Sunday School Hour there are classes available for all ages, from preschool to adults.

Child Care is available during both services and during the Sunday School hour.

Christmas Eve
Three worship services are held each year at 6pm., 8pm., and 10 pm. All service include candle lighting and the 10 pm. service includes Communion.

Holy Week and Easter
During Holy Week there are special services on Holy Thursday (Maundy) and Good Friday.  Easter services are held at the usual times of 9 and 10:30 am.

Outdoor Summer Worship
One Sunday a year in August Cedar Cross holds one service outdoors (weather permitting!) on our property just south of the main building on a grassy hillside and activity court.

Other Special Times for Worship
As we all know our times are filled with the unexpected, both joyful and tragic, and often world and community-changing. Cedar Cross will strive to respond to these events by providing worship and prayer opportunities to help us connect with God’s grace and comfort as well God’s challenge and call to serve in the name of Jesus Christ. Please continue to connect with our web site, Cedar Crossings email and our church office about these opportunities.

We look forward to your presence with us in the worship of God and the Celebration of the Good News of God’s Love in Jesus Christ here at Cedar Cross! Shalom!
