AS WE CELEBRATE
HOLY COMMUNION... we reflect on the awesomeness of God. It is
a time of spiritual renewal - a time to give thanks for the gift of His
Son Jesus Christ. It is a time to meditate, pray and reflect on our
spiritual journey. Enjoy this very special time in our worship
experience when you can talk with God and focus on him alone.
KNEELING AT HOLY COMMUNION TIME... we are encouraging you to take this step of faith. After receiving Holy Communion you have time to come before God by kneeling in prayer. Stay as long as you like. Kneel and listen to the words being sung all around you. Kneel and have your quiet, humble time before your God.
HOLY COMMUNION... this time in our worship experience is an
opportunity for us to raise our voices in praise of our Savior, Jesus
Christ. We use songs that are easy to learn and that seem to “stick with
us” as we leave on Sunday mornings. You may find yourself or your
children singing them throughout the day. That’s great! We call these
songs “heart songs” because they go from the mind, deep down into the
heart - committed to memory without really realizing it. Then, in
moments unexpected, the words and the melody ascend from the heart into
the mind and are placed on our lips. We hope this helps you in your
spiritual journey day by day with Jesus.
SUNDAY SCHOOL... Sunday School classes are at the 9:00 a.m. worship service during the school year and start at age 3 and go through the 6th grade. If you have a child that needs special services, please let us know in order for us to accommodate them. For further information about Sunday School, please contact Lauren Rogers or Toni Bandows through the Church Office at 588-9509.
A.C.T.S.... Active Children’s Time in the Summer (A.C.T.S.) is Sunday morning Christian activity time during the summer months. Held during the 9:00 am service, it is a time for preschoolers through 4th graders to experience the Word of God through fellowship, Bible stories, crafts, snacks and games.
ALL ARE WELCOME
NEW SERMON SERIES! Pastor Raggie’s Advent Sermon Series is “Who's in Charge at Christmas?” Here in the United States we are being swept into the secular and commercial of the Christmas season - bombarded by Santa and his elves, Frosty and his corn cob nose, sales and spending and wrapping and cooking and baking and... and... and. There is nothing wrong with celebrating, the problem is in forgetting who is in charge. Please join us for worship on Sundays at 9:00 or 11:00 am. All are welcome.
Sunday, December 22nd

This is so that Bob Lewis can schedule a time in which you can share your story during the morning announcements. 2 or 3 minutes is all you need to speak. It is important to share with one another how this ministry of Holy Cross can and does make a difference in people’s lives. Too shy to speak aloud? You can write your story and someone will read it for you!
