Church of the Cross commits to reach spiritually lost people in our zip codes by: (1) intentionally praying for the people in our zip codes, (2) generously giving for outreach and ministry to people in our zip codes, and (3) by becoming a “sending church” by 2020—sending out workers to do God’s work! Help us think & pray about what this will look like in Carlisle!
