Church of the Cross
A Reception for Rev. Marla Brown

A Reception on Sunday, June 1st from 3-5 PM at Church of the Cross, 1750 Eastgate Rd. Toledo.


Rev. Marla Brown has faithfully served the Maumee Watershed District as its Superintendent for six years.  We have come to know her as Spiritual leader, disciple, and friend.  Marla has made a tremendous impact on our lives, churches, District, and the Kingdom of God.

Marla will be retiring this June at Annual Conference.   

We hope you will all come to this informal gathering and share in the opportunity to bring Marla a card and wish her a wonderful journey with Christ into her retirement journey.

2014 Mission U:  Learning Together for the Transformation of the World

Mission U is a diverse community of people learning to put their faith into practical action in the current world context. Mission U reflects the theology of The United Methodist Church and the practice of joining personal holiness with social holiness. Through worship, in-depth study, music, prayer, sharing and exploring, we invite you to grow with us in understanding of the mission of the church.

With the changing of the seasons comes the event known around the world as spring house cleaning! Yes, the cleaning of basements, closets, and spare rooms will begin soon. At the Toledo Gospel Rescue Mission we also refer to this as "Fill A Truck Season". It's the opportune time for your church, business, or civic-minded organization to encourage your associates to get involved in helping their community. Click here for Flyer.
Hosting a Fill A Truck Day is a very simple and
effective way to help those in need. It's easy to set up
a Fill A Truck event by calling 419-244-8561 and
speaking to Glen, the Mission Mall Manager. Once a
date and times are set with him, he will notify the office
and we can send you a flyer and/or bulletin insert via
email so that you can begin promoting it with the
people within your organization. Donors love Fill A
Truck Days because they can participate in helping
those in need by bringing their donation of clean,
usable clothing, household goods, etc. to a place
where they are already going-thus saving them a trip
downtown. You can be a community hero by booking a
Fill A Truck event today! Click here to visit our website.
