Healing Service
Here at Holy Cross, we believe that Jesus is alive and well among us through his Holy Spirit, and that a part of his continuing ministry is healing the sick and afflicted. We believe in a supernatural God who still does supernatural things every day. That’s why we’re having a healing service on Saturday, September 26th at 7:00 pm in the sanctuary. We’re coming together as a congregation to expect and pray for the healing power of Jesus to be present among us. Come join us!

Prayer Vigil
Our prayer team is preparing for a prayer vigil in the Worship Center on September 26th from 7AM until 7PM followed by a Prayer and Healing service. We will be praying over the Plant & Build campaign, the members of Holy Cross and the ministries of our partner churches and school. Please consider participating in our prayer vigil on September 26th. You can also submit prayers at hclm.org/prayer

Book Club
Pasquale Buzzelli, a structural engineer with Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, was in his office on the 64th floor of the North Tower as the September 11th attacks began. In his  book, We All Fall Down, he tells how he survived the tower collapse and woke up in the open air hours later on The Pile, a stack of debris seven stories high. Join the Book Club on Monday, Sept 28th, as they discuss this highly emotional and hope filled book.
