Meridian and Madison: My Past and Present by the Rev. Will Compton

Last Sunday, I went home to preach and celebrate at St Paul’s, my home church in Meridian. My roots are deeply entrenched there on the corner of 12th Street and 23rd Avenue. It was my third time to preach there, my first was as a senior in high school on Youth Sunday. It was a day full of nostalgia for me. In speaking of the past, however, it is important to acknowledge the present, and that is what I did in my sermon there, and I quote, “The shaping and forming for ministry that this place [St. Paul’s] began in me not too long ago, the Chapel of the Cross in Madison continues.”

We Are Pilgrims on a Journey – Campaign Update from the Martin’s

As we continue moving forward with our capital campaign, Malorise and I would like to take an opportunity to thank all of you for opening up your hearts and sharing your thoughts and dreams with us. Just the other day we were talking about how this campaign has given us the opportunity to deepen our relationships with so many of you throughout the visit process.

Crayon on the Font by the Rev. Ben Robertson

Baptism is such a joy and such an honor. When the Church baptizes someone, we are not only growing the Church or celebrating our forgiveness from sin and a new life of grace, we are welcoming a new soul into the community of Christ. And as part of that community, all of us promise do all in our power to support each other in our life in Christ.

A Remarkable Time by Janet King

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
We are in the midst of a remarkable time at Chapel of the Cross. We are being asked to help determine the future of our beloved parish.
