Coronavirus concerns:  (Please read below as we work together to show our love for each other and our community)

COVID-19 Precautions at Cross and Resurrection – the Chapel at EMU

As Eastern Michigan University has announced today that: Effective tomorrow, March 12, we are suspending face-to-face instruction in lectures, seminars and other similar classroom settings. The suspension of on campus/in person classes will last through Tuesday, March 31 -- with on campus/in person classes tentatively set to resume on April 1. This decision and timing will be reevaluated on an ongoing basis and may be modified as more information becomes available.

As news about the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to increase and the Governor has put in place of State of Emergency we are reminded of John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”  This is an opportunity for us to trust in Jesus and be wise about how-to best love people who may become sick, overcome by fear, and uncertain about the future.

As things progress, we will be updating our procedures but starting this Sunday, March 15th, we will take the following precautions: (thank you to Pastor Gabe at ULC Ann Arbor for his guidance in these procedures)

  • We will refrain from hugs and handshakes for a time. Fist and elbow bumps encouraged!
  • We will have careful procedures in celebrating the Lord’s Supper. All who serve communion will wash their hands with soap and water, as well as sanitizer before serving. There will be no common cup.
  • We will be canceling our Pancakes and Waffles on Fridays as well as the Sunday Lunches following service until further notice. We hope to start back as soon as the Students return…
  • We encourage common sense and common courtesy to all who worship with us. If you are sick, please stay home. Wash your hands as often as you can. We will have hand sanitizer strategically placed around the building but encourage folks to use their own sanitizer lest we run out too quick.
  • We will maintain an exceptionally clean building. Our custodial staff will continue to do their best to ensure the chapel is a safe and clean facility for us to gather.
  • We will continue to monitor the situation and makes changes and adjustments as needed.

“Therefore I shall ask God to mercifully protect us. Then I shall fumigate, help purify the air, administer medicine and take it . . . If God should wish to take me, he will surely find me, and I have done what he expected of me. If my neighbor needs me, however, I shall not avoid person or place but will go freely.”  

     Martin Luther, Whether One May Flee From a Deadly Plague  

This is a time for concern, but not fear. Our trust is in the God who knows how many days we have in our life, who loves us and died for us! He will continue to be with us. So, we take appropriate precaution, but ultimately our hope is in Him and in His name, we will run towards those who are in need of our care.

Who we are

We are an EMU Student Organization. We strive to love and welcome everyone as they are.  We invite you to Belong first, then Believe, and, in so doing, Become a new creation in Christ. 


What we do

During the college school year we offer many opportunities for fellowship, service, having fun, and growing together (and we are open to suggestions!). These activities include:



Free Pancakes (and waffles, too!)
Friday nights from 10pm to 1am 

This is a great time to come and get something to eat on a Friday night, especially if you have run out of meals on your meal plan for the week. It is also a great time to meet new people and socialize in a safe environment. Everyone is welcome to serve and be served!


09:40am Education Hour for all ages
10:40am Living Praise (Contemporary) Service with communion
12:00pm Lunch


Bible Studies

Talk to Anna or Hannah about UCO Bible Studies and home groups.

Serving opportunities

Whether you love to serve others, want to try your hands on serving, or need to fulfill some community service hours, we have opportunities for you.


Food Ministry

We have a Food Ministry that serves people in the area. We pick up fresh food from a grocery store and the recipients come to our church to receive them. You can be drivers (we have the van), clean and sort the vegetables and fruit, or pack them in boxes to be picked up. 

Friday Night Pancakes

While this is a great time and place to get free pancakes (and waffles, too) and to socialize in a safe environment, it also provides you with a great opportunity to serve. You can help set up, cook, clean up, and take down.

Mission and Service Trips to Mississippi

We take time after Christmas and during Winter Break to go to Lakeshore Mississippi to help our brothers and sisters there who could use a hand up! Please join us for this inexpensive opportunity to serve others!

Talk to our staff about these opportunities!
