What we can recycle: Men’s women’s, and children’s shoes. Cleats, sandals, dress shoes and athletic shoes alike. We cannot recycle: Shoes with holes, plastic “flip-flop” sandals, “crocs”, rubber boots, and any women’s fashion boots above the ankle. Thanks!

PART-TIME SEXTON – Cross of Christ is accepting resumes for a new part-time sexton (custodian) position. The ideal candidate will have a passion for caring for the church grounds and campus, seeing them as valuable tools entrusted to the congregation for ministry. The sexton position involves working with staff and lay volunteers, interacting with members and members of the public, and coordinating with vendors and service providers, so solid interpersonal skills are important, as is the ability to communicate via telephone and electronically. Other important skills and experiences would be in the areas of landscaping, lawn, and grounds care, minor repairs and maintenance, and custodial/cleaning. The position is open to both internal and external candidates. For more information, or to apply, send a resume to Pastor Dave. The position is open beginning September 28.
