1954 – On April 20, our church was organized with 56 charter members meeting in the Grapevine High School auditorium. The church was originally named Memorial Baptist Church. One year later the growing congregation dedicated a new building on Walnut Street near downtown Grapevine. Church members helped with construction, purchased carpet and installed air conditioners.
1973 – Our potential for growth was limited by the development of DFW airport, so we began looking for a new location. Six acres of land were purchased on Timberline Drive, close to Grapevine High School. The first worship service took place in this building on May 13, 1979. A second worship service was soon added to accommodate growth, and two education buildings were constructed.
1988 - Our Children's Day Out weekday education ministry began. Now called Kidz at the Cross, they provide loving education for preschoolers in our community. It is considered one of the premier preschools in the area.
1991 – Even as a new third building was being dedicated, church leaders recognized the need for a larger campus and facility. Our church enthusiastically purchased 47 acres on William D Tate Ave. and began construction on the present Worship Center and Education Center (now known as KidzTown).
1998 – With completion of the Worship Center and the Education building, the church moved to its current 47 acre campus.
2004 – While celebrating its 50th year of ministry, the church voted to adopt a new campus master plan and a strategy for reaching out into the community.
2005 – After an extensive remodeling campaign, the education building was converted into a state-of-the-art children's learning center named KidzTown. The church constructed The Hangar, a 5000 square foot cutting-edge youth facility to accommodate its growing ministry to students. The church also adopted a new organizational structure, becoming an "elder led" congregation.
2008 – The congregation voted to officially change the name of the church to "Church at the Cross" in order to better identify with the 70-foot white cross at the front of the campus.
2009 - The church's Worship Center underwent an extensive renovation and a new 5000 square foot atrium and cafe were added to provide a welcome center and more fellowship space.
