Thank you for your interest in the Living Cross!
Please understand that participation in the Living Cross is a privilege reserved for active, regularly attending members of the Church of the Open Door. That means weekly attendance of more than one service and regular attendance of a Sunday School class.
Membership requirements for children and teens are a little different. All teen participants (aged 13 through 17) must either:
- Be a member of Church of the Open Door AND have parent/guardian permission to participate, OR
- Have a parent or guardian that is a member AND the parent or guardian must be involved in some aspect of the Living Cross ministry.
All child participants 12 years of age and under, regardless of membership status, must be registered by a parent/guardian that is a member of Church of the Open Door, AND must be accompanied by a parent/guardian or other approved adult at ALL practices and DURING ALL presentations. Childcare WILL NOT be available during any rehearsals including Dress Rehearsals with the choir/orchestra. Childcare will be provided during the four presentation nights, but a parent/guardian or approved adult from each family must agree to help with childcare at least one night during the presentation in order for your child to participate. You are responsible for your child prior to each evening presentation to help them with their makeup and costume and you or a responsible person you assigned are required to be at the cast meeting prior to each presentation.
