At Community of the Cross, there are many ways we are “Touching Lives with the Love of God.” This includes assisting with worship, helping various community organizations, organizing annual church events, leading or mentoring the church’s children, caring for those who are ill or grieving, upkeep of the church building and grounds, and assisting with church communication or relationship-building events. We serve in many ways; at church and on a local and global level. There is something for everyone!
CCLC supports four core service partners in our community. Children are engaged in supporting these organizations in many ways throughout the year by donating “Noisy Offering”, needed items, and learning about each organization. Each month we focus on one of the following service partners:
VEAP is a basic needs and social services organization whose programs promote access to healthy foods, stable housing and transportation.
Oasis for Youth opens doors to housing, employment, education and wellness for youth facing homelessness in the suburbs.
Tapestry is a bilingual (Spanish/English) and multicultural community of faith that serves our neighbors in Richfield and Bloomington .
The Sheridan Story works to combat hunger in our community by providing food for students to take home each weekend of the school year.
