We gather on Sundays to refocus our hearts to worship God alone. The Bible tells us we are created to know God, but we all have a worship problem.  Our lives are marked by worshiping things other than God.  So when we gather on Sundays we come to recenter our lives and hearts on the worship of God, through Jesus Christ, in the Holy Spirit.   We do this as the Scriptures are read and preached, and as we sing truth to God and one another.

Times & Location

Worship Gathering: 10:00 am

Location: Defiance YMCA – 1599 Palmer Dr. Defiance, OH 43512

What to Expect

We recognize that it can be strange to visit a church.  We’ll try to answer some questions that might come up.  And on Sunday mornings there will always be members of King’s Cross available to help answer any further questions you might have.

What is the worship gathering like?

Our hope is that our worship gatherings are clear and understandable, yet also rich and deep.  We worship God with both contemporary and historical forms and styles. So we sing a variety of songs and hymns to glorify God and encourage each other.

Feel free to listen to the playlists on the right to become familiar with some of the songs we sing and the songs we’re going to be singing this Sunday. You can also follow the playlists if you would like to listen to them regularly.

Every week there will be a sermon preached from the Bible. And in our teaching, we love to see how God speaks to us from His Word about knowing Jesus, and how he shapes the everyday, nitty-gritty nature of our lives.  And every first and third Sunday of the month we also celebrate communion together.

We hope everyone who comes to learn and worship with us will feel free to come as they are.  There are no rules about either dressing up or dressing down.

What are Equipping Classes?

Equipping Classes “equips” believers for the work of ministry (Eph. 4:11) through biblical classroom instruction. You’ve probably heard the axiom, “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” The purpose of Equipping Classes is to help believers grow deeper with the Lord (teach a man to fish) so that they will be better able to understand and apply the Bible to their lives and become a better minister of the gospel to others (feed him for a lifetime).

Equipping Classes are for all ages and are from 9:15-10am on Sunday mornings before our worship gathering and are on 12-week semesters with one set in the fall (September through November) and the other set in the winter/spring (mid-January into April).


What about my kids?
