Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, there will be no scheduled worship on the following days this month:
Wednesday, November 26th

We hope you will make some extra time to give thanks to the Lord during this season of thanksgiving. Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
Our regular worship schedule will resume on Tuesday, December 2nd.
Worshipers honoring the Lord through music
“The Lord takes pleasure in those who reverently and worshipfully fear Him, in those who hope in His mercy and loving-kindness.” Psalm 147:11
We would love for you to be a part of our 5th Friday GATHERING NIGHT this Friday, October 31st. We will have a different Lead Worshiper each hour, beginning at 6pm until 10pm and you are invited to bring your instrument and/or your bible and participate in corporate worship. Afterwards we will enjoy “food with friends” downstairs together. If you can, please bring a finger food to share, and if you can’t, no worries, just come on anyway. Remember, “Come when you can, leave when you must!” We hope to see you Friday!
The Cross Worship Ministry received some nice publicity, courtesy of “Victory 91.5″, when Founder, Mark Baer was interviewed on their program. The interview was in preparation for the August 16th event in Flowery Branch with our Worship Truck. Below are the links to hear this interview.

Heather and Team
There were thunderstorms early in the morning before and later in the night after our Open House this year, but God gave us a lovely day again for the 6th year in a row! From 11am until 10pm we were blessed with the beautiful sounds of music that honored the Lord from many of those that worship at The Cross Worship Ministry. Eleven different worship teams participated, each team bringing their own unique sound.
Watching the remote control boats in the lake
In addition to fishing, canoeing, bean bag toss, swings for the children and a hammock to rest in, this year we also enjoyed watching the remote control boats in the lake, some with their lights on as dusk began to descend upon us. It was quite entertaining for the boys in the picture here!
Darren at the grill
There were plenty of good eats all the day long, beginning with egg and cheese croissants. The grill masters turned out some delicious chicken and hotdogs to go with chips, coleslaw and plenty of desserts, including some scrumptious homemade ones! There were plenty of ice cold sodas as well as bottles of water too.
We want to give a big shout out of THANKS to all those who participated in so many different ways to help make this year’s Open House a wonderful day. This is like family here. You pitched in and did what you saw needed to be done! Thank you so very much!
The Cross Worship Ministry 2014 Open House Slideshow
A Resting Place at The Cross Worship Ministry
Thursday, May 1st is the National Day of Prayer and you are invited to join others here at The Cross as we seek the Lord together through worship, prayer and His Word. You may come by anytime between 10am – 10pm and stay for a few minutes or linger longer. Throughout the day many different Lead Worshipers will be participating with various styles of music. Light refreshments will be available downstairs.
The 2014 Theme is “One Voice, United in Prayer” and is taken from Romans 15:6 that says, “So that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
I’m looking forward to seeing you this Saturday, February 22nd. This year’s forum will have valuable information you don’t want to miss, but it is more than that. It is a time for us to interact, encourage, pray and just be together. Feel free to invite other worship leaders to join us. This will be a great day!
