Current Sermon Series – Seasons: Doing Life Together

Church Service – July 12th

Current sermon series, Seasons: Doing Life Together! As we move into a new church season, we also move into a new season in our lives and in how we are dealing with the current pandemic. We welcome you home to do life together with your family here at Holy Cross.  The readings will be about the life of Christ and the ongoing life of the church as we relate them to our ongoing lives during this challenging season.  Please join us here or online, at 8:00am or 10:00am, for Doing Life Together!

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 or mail to church address at 780 N Sun Drive, Lake Mary, FL 32746.

Prayer Requests

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

Unscripted Live Video

Join the Pastors on Thursday at 1:30pm for live video “Unscripted” on or Holy Cross Facebook page.

Seating arrangements

Most of you have noticed the seating spacing at church. We have created groups of seating to allow members of households to sit together while remaining socially distant from other households. We feel that this is the best way for us to adhere to government guidance and care for others as we gather. Please find a seating group that most closely resembles your group size. If there are 2 in your party, pick a set with 2 seats, if all 2s are occupied pick a three and so on. You should not sit in a seating group with another household unless you have frequent interaction with that group outside of church(ie:they are in your inner circle). Thanks for keeping others safe.


Announcements & Updates

Volunteers Needed

Have you ever wanted to get more involved in the church and wanted to meet more people within the church? We are looking for volunteers to help during the services as Ushers and Communion Assistants. These roles are often only an extra 45 minutes once or twice a month, but are so essential at keeping our church services running smoothly.

Sharing Center – Cereal Needed!

Toucan Sam, the Lucky Charms Leprechaun. From the colorful characters to the mail-in premiums and games on the back of the box, there’s a good reason breakfast cereal has stood the test of time and become a full-on lifestyle for some folks. As a breakfast cereal it’s dandy and as a snack it’s handy! Pick up cereal donations with your next grocery trip and bring items to church with you on Sundays or take items to the Sharing Center Food Pantry, Mon.-Fri. 9AM to noon at 600 N US Hwy 17-92 Longwood, FL 32750.
