Before you email, check out the answers to these FAQs...
1. Where do you gather for worship on Sundays?
In this opening season of ministry we are meeting at Jennie Moore Elementary School (2725 Bulrush Basket Lane, Mt. Pleasant, SC 29466).
2. That campus has more than one school on it, right? Which building are you in?
Correct! The Sweetgrass Campus is home to both Jennie Moore Elementary (where we meet) and Laing Middle School. The campus is bounded on the south by Hamlin Road and on the east by Billy Swails Blvd. Jennie Moore is in the "back" of the campus, meaning it is the building farthest from Hamlin Road. If it sounds confusing, don't worry - we will have signs and volunteers out helping direct you to the most convenient parking.
3. What time will your worship services start on Sundays?
Worship will begin at 10:00a.m. but we would strongly encourage you to arrive at least 15 minutes early.
This is especially if you have children ages Birth - 5th grade as we have a secure check-in system for all children each week. However, we would encourage everyone to arrive early so that you have time to meet people, find a seat, or just to settle your heart and your mind before the service begins.
4. Can anyone come?
Yes! Everyone is welcome at King's Cross Church! You'll meet some people who have been Christians for years and have been a part of helping us start the church. But you'll also meet people who have been out of church for a long time, for one reason or another, and are looking to reconnect with God. You'll also meet people who aren't Christians at all, but are open to exploring faith and are interested in the claims and teachings of Jesus.
Believer, non-believer, skeptic, atheist, and agnostic... you're welcome at King's Cross.
Young, old, and somewhere in between... you're welcome at King's Cross.
Charleston native, or just relocated to the area... you're welcome at King's Cross.
African-American, Caucasian, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, or any other race or ethnicity... you're welcome at King's Cross.
Rich, poor, or middle class...you're welcome at King's Cross.
What binds us together is our faith in Jesus Christ, and we'd love to talk to you more about that!
5. Do I need to dress up?
Nope, but you can if you want to. We are excited to meet you, and to help you get connected at King's Cross...whether you want to wear a coat and tie, or shorts and flip flops!
6. Do you have Nursery/Children/Student Ministry?
We love families, and we want to partner with parents, grandparents, and friends to make sure children and students have the opportunity to hear the gospel and learn about Jesus in safe, age-appropriate settings. We also want to equip parents, grandparents, and friends to share the gospel and teach children and students about Jesus in their homes. By providing both we hope to be a blessing to families and to raise up the next generation to live their lives on mission for Charleston and the world.
When you arrive on Sunday mornings you will find our Nursery (Birth - Walkers) and Children's Ministry (3K - 5th grade) spaces are secure, clean, and well-staffed with volunteers who have been properly screened and trained. For more information about our Children's Ministry, click here.
Our Student Ministry (6th - 12th grade) gathers weekly as well, just not on Sunday mornings. Rather, on Sunday mornings both Middle and High School students join their parents for worship. For more information about our Student Ministry activities, click here.
7. Is there a cost for childcare on Sunday mornings?
Providing safe, age-appropriate settings for children is part of the way we minister to families in our community. The volunteers in our Nursery and Children's Ministry are there because they love children, want to help them learn more about Jesus, and want to serve both visitors to and members of King's Cross Church.
8. What can I expect during a Sunday morning worship service?
The Sunday morning worship gathering is a critical part of any church's ministry. The New Testament doesn't give rigid guidelines on "how" to worship, but rather it focuses on the message about Jesus (i.e. the gospel), and the heart of the worshipper.
At King's Cross we will strive to be gospel-centered in all we do, making sure that Jesus is the focus of our songs, our sermons, our prayers, and other elements of worship.
In addition, we recognize that God has placed us in a coastal context. That means that for the most part we minister in a culture that is relaxed and casual, so our worship "style" will be designed to reach that culture. If you want to wear a suit, that's fine with us...if you want to wear shorts, that's fine with us too!
As a general rule, we will use modern instruments to lead our congregation in worship and we will sing gospel-centered songs. Sometimes those songs will be months old, but sometimes they will be centuries old; we're more concerned about what the songs say, and how they sound, than we are with when they were written.
Our goal is to focus on worshipping in spirit and truth as a community of faith, rather than on any one particular "style" of worship.

9. Wait, I thought you were going to be on Clements Ferry?
Correct, that has been our plan for over a year now. However, after an exhaustive search we simply have not been able to find a suitable location. That said, it is important to remember that while buildings facilitate the ministry of the church, the people of God carry out the ministry of the church.
Our long-term goal remains finding a location in the Clements Ferry Road corridor that will facilitate the ministry of King's Cross and allow us to gather for worship. But, we need to make that decision wisely considering many factors like location, occupancy cost, accessibility, size, etc.
For now, we are excited about the opportunity to get started in Jennie Moore Elementary, and we trust the Lord will show us the right next step(s).
