Pastor Lane speaking….


I would like to give a big thank you in advance to all the people who are filling in for me while I am on sabbatical. Sue Ferries will be the liturgist for almost all the Sundays. This is a big commitment on her part. So a special thank you to Sue. Other people are going to be doing home communion and hospital visits. The council cabinets heads have their duties and the building project will be under way. It will be a busy three months here at Cross of Christ. I will be praying for you the whole time I am gone. Thanks again, everyone, for allowing me to have this time of sabbatical.

Dear Friends in Christ,


As we go through the worship series UP-IN-OUT, we are learning to live a balanced life we will want to imitate Jesus.

Jesus balanced UP-IN-OUT to live a human life filled with the power of God. The challenge for you as a Christ follower is how you respond to God’s mercy, forgiveness and fresh power in your life so you can live like Jesus. So you can deepen your relationships with everyone around you.

Up – How are you investing in your relationship with the LORD?
Are you committed to worship the LORD above all other priorities?
Are you creating a pattern of prayer and Bible reading in your daily life?
What are you going to do to grow in your UP dimension?

In – How are you connecting with the other believers in the community of Christ – the church?
Are you involved in a Bible study or small group where you can be cared for and where you can care for others?
What are you doing to grow in your IN dimension?

Out – How are you reaching out with God’s love to make a difference in people’s lives?
How are you reaching out as a Christ follower to change our community?
Are you sharing how Jesus has changed your life with friends and family?
Are you inviting them to worship or small group meetings?
Are you getting involved to touch the life of people in need?
What are you doing to expand in your OUT dimension?

As we explore ways to deepen your relationships UP-IN-OUT, I challenge you to put in action what you hear to find out how the LORD will bless you.
To have a vibrant community of disciples each of us is called to make a commitment.

Your friend in Christ,
