Join the Pastors and L-Team Captains Today

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 Sept 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.

L-Team Announcements
