Learn More about Plant & Build
Please join us for an informal, but important, conversation regarding Plant & Build and explore your role in His plan for Holy Cross.  The following events are scheduled to take place over the next month to help each of us better understand the goals and roles we can play in growing His Kingdom.

• Sunday, October 4th, at Noon, Cookout with Inform Event in the Fellowship Hall

We Need Candy (Individually wrapped… LOTS)
Join us for Lake Mary’s biggest and best Trunk ‘R Treat, Oct 24th at 5pm, right here in the Holy Cross Parking Lot! We are bringing back the inflatable bounce house, inflatable obstacle course and a dunk tank. We will have hot dogs to roast over the open fire pit and  LOTS OF CANDY!  So whether you are a little kid or a kid at heart, there is something for everyone. Kids can visit dozens of trunks in costume and safely collect candy.  To register your trunk or volunteer, go to trunkRtreat.org.

Red Hat Ladies
The draw is ALWAYS the salad bar.  LOVE IT!  Very fresh with cool stuff like beets, edamame beans, chick peas, and real lettuce. A nice touch was the higher quality lemonade on the menu. The garlic biscuits were very tasty. Our ladies are traveling to Ruby Tuesday’s located on Saxon Blvd in Orange City on October 6th. To get there take I-4 to exit 111B towards Orange City, merge onto Saxon Blvd. Ruby Tuesday’s address is 1212 Saxon Blvd. Contact Grace Friedrich 386-574-8144 or Doris Underwood 386-789-4280 to make reservations.

We are His Hands and His feet…called to serve Him in the mission field where we are.

Can You Help?
