As Family...

We Gather.

We regularly gather together as a collection of Missional Communities to worship the God who has saved us, to sing His praises and sit under His Word.

What to Expect: We gather to pray, sing, listen, share, interact and grow together. We view our worship gatherings more like a family reunion than a production, which means we are very interactive, even during sermons. We believe church leadership and gatherings exist to equip followers of Jesus for ministry (Ephesians 4:11-13).

We offer age-appropriate ministry for infants through 5th Grade during our gatherings.
Our middle and senior high youth gather as a missional community.

If you consider this your church family, would you consider signing up to serve during our gatherings?

Gathering at Arrowhead Elementary School
7490 W Union Hills Dr. Glendale, AZ 85308
Sundays at 10:30am - Prayer 1st Sundays at 9:15am

As Missionaries...

We Go.

Missional communities are the primary way we connect with others and live our lives on mission.

These smaller groups of people (10-20) provide an opportunity to know others and be known within Church of the Cross. Through these relationships, we mutually challenge and encourage one another to truly believe our Identity in Christ and live life in Rhythms that show the world who God truly is.

Each missional community has identified their unique mission within the larger community and meets regularly to eat, learn, pray and be together on mission, living out the Gospel in real and tangible expressions. Whether you consider yourself part of the Church of the Cross family—or if you're just checking out what it looks like to live as Jesus lived—it is our desire that everyone would be an active member in one of these communities that bring life, healing and growth.

We gather to remind one another of the truth of the Gospel, live out our identity as God's Family and equip each other to be sent back out into everyday life as His sent ones. There are a lot of logistics involved in gathering a large family, so we need every member to make it work!
Serving during gatherings is a great way to connect with the bigger church family and live out our identity of Servants, to the glory of Jesus. We would love to have enough servants that everyone rotates once a month. Would you consider helping us to that end?
