I'm so confused by this? How is an athiest a member of a church who's “cornerstone of our faith is ... what Jesus Christ did for us on the cross".

I guess I support this. If you just want to be a social club and not a church, the cross should come down.

I'm a little worried that they're going to find the whole C3Exchange group dead from a mass suicide waiting for aliens to take them up to heaven in a few years, though.

So I looked at your FB page...

"C3 Exchange is an inclusive spiritual community that offers resources to enrich and empower the lives of all people in body, mind and spirit."

I'd like you to read this, and see if any of it feels relatable:

If the "church" wants to remove the cross that is their choice. What bothers me is the use of 'progressive Christian' a term being used by many churches today. Fact is, they are like grapenuts - not grapes and not nuts, and these so-called progressives are not progressive and not Christian. OK, take it down (Cross), but let us be honest - they have moved into Unitarian Universalism - OK, but please do not claim to be Christian, this is a slap in the face to those who desire to be faithful to Jesus Christ. This is the trend today and the Bible warns that this will happen in the end times ... get ready the fun is just starting!!!

You're right it is confusing and goes against the christian reason of having a church and the fact that the cross is the symbol of why Jesus willingly gave his life for those who believe in him. The cross is to remind the world of what Jesus did for the world; to have eternal life and forgiveness of sins through him.

That place has been going down for more than 10 years. They're not a church but a social club. They might have changed their name, but they're going to demand to be treated like a church for the tax benefit.
