Closing Devotion


We would like to personally congratulate you on your graduation from High School or College. We would like to formally recognize your accomplishment at Holy Cross at the 9:30am service on Sunday, May 22nd.  There will be a table in the narthex with a special gift for you. So make plans to attend Sunday Service and join your fellow graduates as we congratulate you on your achievement. As part of our celebration, we would like to add a quick description of your plans after graduation. Please send the information to the church office as well as if you will be in attendance by Monday, May 16th. You can e-mail Sue Moffitt with the information at smoffitt@hclm.org.

VBS Donations

The VBS team has requested that we start collecting paper towel rolls and toilet paper rolls for them to use for their projects. Please  drop them off in the narthex.

Are you a caffeinated individual?

Holy Cross is looking for a Sunday morning Barrista to begin a donation only cafe in the Courtyard and Fellowship Hall. A passion for serving and hopefully some mad baking skills are all that is required (would be great for an aspiring caterer). Contact Pastor Matt at mwallsi@hclm.org if you are interested.
