Psalm 57:1-5, 1 Timothy 1:12-17, Luke 15:1-10
Third Sunday of Trinity
Church Service – June 20
Current sermon series: Wait Listed
For the past year, it feels like we’ve all been waiting. Like life is on hold, and we are waiting for it to start again. But that is not something unique just to the past year. Very often in life we find ourselves waiting. And we are not alone when that happens. Abraham and Sarah. Paul and Silas. Saul and David. David and Goliath. Their stories all have something to teach us about what is happening during the season of being “waitlisted”. God has a plan, but we might have to wait for it. And, while we’re waiting, God is faithful, listening, and hopes you don’t give up— because God doesn’t give up on you.
How to Stay Connected Until You’re Ready to Come Back
We know it’s hard to feel connected sometimes with everything that is going on. We are working hard here at Holy Cross to keep our church family thriving as much as possible while still being responsible with our decisions about the health of our congregation and the community. Here are some ways to stay plugged in to HCLM:
– Devotions on YouTube and Facebook- intended for our student ministry, but helpful for everyone.
– Prepare for Sunday Services – contemporary worship songs, scripture readings, and questions for deeper thinking posted throughout the week on Facebook and Instagram
– Monday Night Bible Study @ 5:30pm on Facebook- A walk through the book of Psalms with Pastor Matt and Pastor Chris
– Praying for You – We have always believed in the power of prayer. If there is something weighing on your mind or want to submit a prayer, let us know through our prayer request form or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
– Online or In Person Services – Sunday at 8:00am for traditional service or 10:00am for contemporary
– Holy Cross Lake Mary Podcast – Check out and subscribe to our new podcast on iTunes or Spotify. You can also simply ask Alexa to “play the Holy Cross Lake Mary Podcast”
Tithes & Offerings
We give because we recognize that God has blessed us immensely and so we honor Him by giving back to Him out of our tithes and offerings. You can give online at hclm.org/give or mail to church address at 780 N Sun Drive, Lake Mary, FL 32746.
Sunday Morning Seating Arrangements
We ask that members of households to sit together while remaining socially distant from other households with 2-3 seats between families. Thanks for keeping others safe.

Announcements & Updates
Brings out the Tiger in you…
Tony the Tiger may be the most famous breakfast cereal mascot of all time. When you hear this slogan, you know exactly who the tiger is and the product he promotes. Most people automatically hear the music jingle in their head. It’s a tripe whammy. You might say, It’s Great! Our Rocky Railway campers did a great job filling the train with cereal, now it’s your turn to bring in a few more boxes to finish it off.
