Holy Land Carvings – July 30th
“Bethlehem Christian Families” from the Holy Land: They are in danger of having to leave their homes in search of work. They sell Olive Wood Carvings to help the Christian families remain in their homes and support their families. These Christians who make their livelihood through the selling of their hand carved Olive Wood religious items are depending on us to bring these beautiful carving, such as, Nativity Scenes, Crucifixes, Picture of the Last Supper, and several other religious items to you. Please look over these carvings displayed in the narthex on July 16th and will be available for sale on July 30th to help support this mission, additional information available at www.holylandcarvings.com. Your support and understanding in this crucial matter is greatly appreciated.
Remembering the Reformation!
2017 is the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. We mark this date from October 31, 1517 when Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the door of the Wittenberg Church. At Holy Cross, we will be doing many things this year to commemorate this historical time.
Pastor Hoyer has written 95 thoughts that can be used in your daily devotions based on each of the 95 Theses. Beginning July 28th, we will send out one thought each day for 95 days leading to October 31, 2017. If we have your e-mail address, we will be sending you the devotions; you are welcome to share these with others. Upon request, if you want a printed version, contact the church office (407-333-0797).
We have been experiencing some issues with our server here at Holy Cross. Due to this problem, some of your prayer requests and questions submitted through our website may not have been reaching us. We apologize if one of your prayer requests did not make it into our prayer list, or if we did not respond to a question that you submitted. We are working on resolving the issue, and things should be working properly by the time you are reading this. Thank you for your understanding.
