CROSS BUILDING FUND - Contributions to the Building Fund are appreciated as we need funds for our upcoming payments. Please consider a Building Fund contribution. Thank you in advance.

MAILBOXES - Please check your mailboxes and take your mail, envelopes, and yearly statements!

SECURITY PROCEDURES - Beginning August 21, 2023, all doors to the church and school will be kept locked during regular school and daycare hours. This is common practice for both public and parochial schools in our area and will provide an extra measure of safety for our students. The church council has approved the
following:

  • All church visitors should use the Office Entrance during normal office hours. If possible, please call ahead to let the office know you Will be coming.

  • Upon arrival, press the doorbell by the office entrance doors. You may be asked to give your name and reason for the visit. The door will then be unlocked for you to enter.

  • Upon entering the building, visitors must sign in at the office. They will need to sign out when they leave.

PHONE BLAST - Please stop by the church office to fill out a one-call form if you are not receiving "phone blast" calls for updates on activities, event reminders, and cancellation notifications. This is a wonderful way for important church and school communications to reach more members and friends. You are provided an option at the end of the "phone blast" message to opt-out at any time.

 

REGISTRATION - If you know of any family that is interested in a solid Christian Education for their child/children, please ask them to consider Cross Lutheran School. They can contact the office for more information or to register.

 

FAMILY FRIENDLY ZONE - Families with small children need easy access to the exits. We would like to keep the last two rows of pews in the church available for them. Please keep this in mind when selecting your seating.

LIFT HIGH THE CROSS GARDEN - We are offering the opportunity to purchase a brick for the garden.  You may purchase a brick for $70 for yourself or a family member. Contact June Sturm for more information at 989-453-2575.

DISASTER QUILTERS - The Cross Disaster quilters have sent 132 quilts, 4 pet blankets, l6 layettes, and 3 cloth kangaroo bags to the NALC Disaster Relief Warehouse since January 1st of this year. We’d like to thank all of you who make it possible for our church to do this mission Work here in the U.S. Some people tie quilts, make tops at home, search for backs, make sure the batting we need is ordered, donate material and get Thrivent cards for shipping. Unfortunately, the costs of batting and shipping have gone up. Batting is purchased 3 times a year and costs about $300 per order. It costs $250 per shipment 4 times a year. If you’d like to help our group continue this work and would like to donate, just Write “Quilters” on your Benevolence envelope and put it in the collection plate.
