Galatians: Good News & Freedom


Galatians is a passionate plea from the Apostle Paul to some of his first converts to not abandon the freedom they have in Jesus. Join us at 4pm on Sundays as we look at what this letter of the Bible has to say today.

"...we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified."

--The Apostle Paul, Galatians 2:16

 

“We find no rest for our weary bones unless we cling to the word of grace.” 

― Martin Luther, Commentary on the Epistle to the Galatians

Life in Community


God did not make us to be alone. Though there are 3.2 million people in Orange County, it is entirely possible to be surrounded by people but remain unknown. Though we may have family, dating relationships, coworkers, or neighbors in our lives, it it possible to have a life that is completely fragmented.

 We invite you to live life as God intended it, not just authentic but vulnerable, not compartmentalized but whole. Get connected to a Community Group here.

Summer Church Retreats


This summer we are setting aside intentional time for refreshment, reflection, and some plain-old-fashioned-fun together as a church. We'll heading down south a bit to camp at the San Mateo camp ground at the end of July and beginning of August.

Summer Church Retreats


This summer we are setting aside intentional time for refreshment, reflection, and some plain-old-fashioned-fun together as a church. We'll heading down south a bit to camp at the San Mateo camp ground at the end of July and beginning of August.

Community and the health of our church are both values for us as Cross of Christ. We want to be as intentional with our rest and fun as we are with our work. We hope to create some space for that this summer.

What you can expect:

• Space for personal quiet time in the Bible, prayer, and journaling. 

• The thrill of attempting to cook together over open flames (followed by the internal questions of "Did I cook this long enough and is it safe to it?" that grow increasingly louder with every bite).

• Beach activities like swimming, surfing (or in my case, falling), relaxing, hiking and so on.

Talk to your Community Group leader or visit the Connect Desk on Sunday for more details.

Jesus

We preach Jesus from the Bible.

While you may learn some good things like historical background on the text, how to be a better person, or how to date or marry well, none of those are the primary purpose of preaching. Without Jesus, none of those things matter. Since Jesus is what we all need, and since the Bible is all about Him, we preach Jesus from the Bible every Sunday.

Kids Ministry

Help parents raise kids who love Jesus.

Our focus is on helping parents raise kids who love Jesus. We don’t just want to babysit children or do the work of discipling kids for their parents, we want to help train you, the parents or future parents, to raise kids who know and love Jesus.

Modern Liturgy

Public rhythms for private practices.

Our Sunday gatherings are also shaped by the rich heritage of faith that has been handed down through the centuries, so we seek to use a modern liturgy. We sing hymns that are centuries old done in ways that are understandable to us in this time. We read creeds, catechisms, and responsive readings together because we believe God loves hearing his kids proclaim truth about him together.
