at Holy Cross
“Thy word is a lamp
unto my feet,
and a light
unto my path.”
Evangelism Ministries works to:
† Provide opportunities for guests to come to know the ministries of Holy Cross
† Provide the ministries of Holy Cross with guidance in how to impact the community for the sake of Jesus.
† Create a welcoming atmosphere in our day to day ministry.
† Provide non-threatening ways to share the hope which is in Jesus Christ to those who do not know Him.
† Provide education and leadership to ministries of Holy Cross as we explore the current religious climate in the home, the community, nation and world.
† Explore ways to educate and integrate new members.
As our ministry grows, we continue to explore ways to create a loving, caring, welcoming, Christ-centered place for all people to become Fully Devoted Followers. We look to one another and to those around us in order to be creative and innovative in how we share God’s grace - the unconditional, unearned, unmerited love that He has for us. Jesus needs you to touch others with his love, care, compassion, understanding and peace. If you would like to be a part of this important ministry, please contact Barbara Drewes through the church office at 631-588-9509.

Evangelism Ministries Calendar
OUTREACH & EVANGELISM MEETING SCHEDULE - Available online by clicking here.
Every Sunday - Coffee / Fellowship Hour... We are in need of hosts / hostesses for our Coffee Hours on Sunday morning. There is a sign up sheet at the Information Center in the Narthex (lobby) of the church. This is a wonderful way to say good morning to each other and meet new friends, renew old acquaintances. We would like to be able to have Coffee Hour every Sunday morning. Have no fear - it is easy to do! Please take a few minutes to sign up to host a Coffee Hour on a particular Sunday to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary, graduation, etc. Thank you.
Evangelism Ministries Opportunities
Here are some of Evangelism Ministries activities:
† Pocket Faith Cards - Very often Holy Cross will tuck a small business-card sized card in with our Sunday Bulletin / Parish News. These cards contain quotes from scripture or faith based messages and are a small reminder of the sermon theme for the week. They can easily be carried in a pocket, wallet or purse and referred to during the week when you are feeling harried, overwhelmed or in need of a quiet prayer minute.
† Glad Tidings Scrolls - Glad Tidings is our direct outreach program to proclaim the birth of Jesus Christ to our surrounding community. Our scrolls are a message of God’s love with an invitation to come and worship Him at Christmas. Although we provide the service times at Holy Cross, our focus is for them to worship Him at their home church or whichever church they feel comfortable at.
† Prospective Members Meetings - Providing information about our church, worship services, ministries and future plans to new attendees.
† Communion / Confirmation Mailings - Provides an opportunity for the congregation to send note cards with a blessing, prayer or words of love and encouragement to our youth receiving First Holy Communion or making their Confirmation.
† Coffee Hour - Allows members and ministries of Holy Cross an opportunity to host a table on Sunday mornings for simple fellowship or in honor or celebration of birthdays, baptisms, etc., sharing meeting old and new friends while enjoying coffee, tea and cake or cookies.
† Fellowship Hour - Allows the various ministries and committees at Holy Cross an opportunity to host a table on Sunday mornings during the summer, sharing fellowship with the congregation while enjoying cookies and iced tea or lemonade.
