Our Church, Our Ministries, Our Family
Sunday School – a Sunday morning Christian education opportunity for children to learn about Jesus and hear the timeless stories from the Bible. There are opportunities for girls and boys to interact with each other and with caring Christian adults — learning together to read the Bible and to understand God’s ways. Each child is valued, and each one learns that our lives are planned by God!
Children’s Corner – a short segment in the worship services when the pastor or an appointed adult children’s worker gathers the boys and girls together in the chancel for a brief talk on a child's level, or for a short illustrated lesson.
Junior Church – time out of the sanctuary for the children to learn more about God on their own level, and within the framework of their ability and interest. While no specific age is defined, this program includes children, generally, from kindergarten to grade 4.
Vacation Bible School – a summertime, fun-filled week of Bible-related learning opportunities, including stories, drama, music, crafts and games—and ALWAYS, refreshments! This program usually includes kids of ALL ages with their parents—something for the whole family in a leisure, but Christian, environment.
Wesleyan Church of the Cross provides many ways for you to "get connected" with fellow members to form meaningful, lasting relationships and receive the personal encouragement, support, and prayers that every believer needs. Here's how you can get connected.

Usher's Ministry - The Usher's Ministry is responsible for helping to provide a welcoming and orderly environment during the worship services. Ushers assist with seating, receiving offerings, serving Communion, and responding to emergencies.
