Church of the Cross Database
Church of the Cross is restructuring our database. Beginning this month, we will be using a database service called Realm. This database will give us easy access to the contact information we choose to share to enable us to be in touch with one another with ease.
Instructions for creating a profile in Realm will be forthcoming in future Daily Cross email communications.
As well, we will have people present with computers after worship on Sunday, June 18, 25, and July 2 to help us create profiles.
We’ll speak more about this at announcements in worship this Sunday, but please keep your eyes open for more information regarding utilizing Realm and creating a Realm profile. Thank you.

Amen.
-A Prayer for Guidance
O God of peace, who has taught us that in returning and rest we shall be saved, in quietness and confidence shall be our strength: By the might of your Spirit lift us, we pray you, to your presence, where we may be still and know that you are God; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
-A Prayer for Quiet Confidence
Almighty God, kindle, we pray, in every heart the true love of peace, and guide with your wisdom those who take counsel for the nations of the earth, that in tranquility your grace may increase until the earth is filled with the knowledge of your love; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
