Re-Opening of Our Sunday Morning Worship Service Began on June 21

Shadow of the Cross re-opened on Sunday, June 21, at 9:45 a.m. Observing the restrictions imposed because of the pandemic, there will be a limit of 50 persons per service. You must register with the church office at 248/474-0675.

Please wear masks unless, for a specific reason, you are unable to. The church has established social distancing in the sanctuary. Communion will be provided in self-serve containers so as to limit contact. The sanctuary will be cleaned after every service. 

There will be a service every Sunday. Communion will be served every week. Bible study is on hold until we can streamline the process of reestablishing how we move forward. For this reason, Saturday evening worship is also on hold.

Aaron Clark has created a SOTC YouTube channel and we are streaming the service so that those who aren’t in attendance can still watch live. If you want to watch, you must go to YouTube (click here) and subscribe.

Please direct all your questions to the church office: 248 474-0675. The church staff works Mondays through Thursdays, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Thank you for your patience and perseverance, and God bless!

VBS Begins July 27

Shadow of the Cross’s Vacation Bible School is scheduled for the week of July 27. At this time there will be only one session in the morning for students from the age of 4 through those who just completed 6th grade. We will not have a session in the evening for families.  Prayerfully, we will bring back the evening VBS in 2021.

Due to the restrictions caused by the pandemic, we aren’t sure at this time if those times will be accurate, if we will be able to gather together for VBS, whether we will have a virtual VBS online, or just what will happen. We will continue to plan, and we’ll keep updates in the weekly email blast.

Contribute Uplifting Messages or Pictures

by Tuesday afternoons, to be in the Midweek Blast.  We will be happy to share them with the congregation.  We are all in this together. Let’s stay connected!
