Holy Cross 201

Are you coming to the Lutheran faith from another denomination? Even if you’ve been a member for a while, do you ever wonder why we have (or DON’T have) certain practices and traditions here at Holy Cross that aren’t common in other churches? Or you want to know what sets us apart from the different denominations of the Christian faith? Come join us every Wednesday at 8:00pm at Holy Cross 201! Everyone is invited to come discuss the basics of our faith.

Thrivent Action Teams

Thrivent Action Teams make it easy to live generously on your Wise With Money Journey. It starts with a simple question: “Who can I help and how?” Next, identify a community need and grab friends and family to form a volunteer team and brainstorm ways to address it. Thrivent provides promotional resources and seed money to jump-start your fundraiser, educational event or service project. Your team provides the people power to bring it to life.
