What is CROSS?
CROSS is Myers Park Presbyterian Church’s unique urban outreach ministry. Over the past 17 years, more than 10,000 people from 270 churches, colleges, and schools in 19 states have served through CROSS Missions.
The formula is simple:
- Combine worship, reflection, and service
- Serve others morning and afternoon
- Reflect and celebrate through morning and evening worship
Through Christ, the results are anything but simple. People are transformed, returning home ready to meet the needs of their communities.
