Join the Pastors and L-Team Captains for lunch on September 11th at Noon
Over 150 families responded to our Summer survey. We have gone over the results and would like to have an open forum to discuss those results over lunch on September 11th at Noon in the Fellowship Hall. We continue to search for a new Worship Leader for the contemporary services, but that is not the only change taking place. Pastor Chris is finished with school and turning his attention to L-Teams (We have around 15-20 new teams in development for Fall). The Staff is teaming up with some members of the Congregation to help develop a continuing vision for Holy Cross that will help carry us into the future. Join us to see what we’ve been doing and where we hope to go with God’s blessing.
Who will ever forget September 11, 2001?

Pastor Paul and Pastor Chris Sunday Bible Study starts September 11th
One of the common themes that we heard during the last survey was a desire from you to have more accessible Pastor-led Bible studies. Starting on Sunday, September 11th (and continuing for 8 weeks) at 9:30am Pastors Paul and Chris will be leading a Bible study on the Book of Acts. We would love to see students attend Sunday School and parents attend this Bible Study and worship together at 11:00am!
