FRIDAY, JULY 3 -  7:00 PM  OR


Through the Holy Spirit we have the gift of resiliency.  We may get knocked down in life but we can get up because: “Greater is He that is in you, than he who is in the world.”  — I John 4:4.  Resiliency through presence of the Holy Spirit, God within you and me, is the thread that runs through every victory.  From Psalm 103 we hear; “God has redeemed our life from destruction.”  So we can say as victorious Christians, ‘I might get hit but I will keep coming back because I have the supernatural power of the Spirit, God Himself, on my side.

Dear Friends,


How I miss you all. I wish we could be together in our fellowship and worship together. But this is going to happen soon I believe.


1.  Right now the Bishop’s recommendation is that we return to communal or corporate worship the beginning of July.


2.  When we do gather again we will have marked out where everyone may sit, acknowledging the social distancing program that is in place.


3.  I am working to figure out ways to stay connected with our members. We have been using the Text Streams to accomplish some of this. In the beginning it was a very important tool. But as the days stretch out people are less involved in it. Some of it has to do with the “slipping into a new normal”. Some of it has understandably to do with a growing lethargy in people’s hearts and minds.


4.   The worship team continues to bring you the Sunday morning worship service.  You may check in through the website, Facebook or directly going to YouTube. 


5.  On Facebook I continue to add songs that you might enjoy and write encouraging and spiritual food for thought . 


6.  Beginning in June on Facebook we will have story time done by our very own Debbie Quilles who has been an elementary school teacher for 35 years. She has also spearheaded our vacation Bible camp for several years now.  I know you will enjoy story time. So get your children involved your grandchildren ,  nieces and nephews ,  your neighborhood children by letting them know our Facebook page address.  We encourage you to share the Holy Cross Facebook page with those on your Friends list.


7.  Financially we are holding on. Your generosity to the ministry and your love for the Lord has made this possible. Through the hard work of Kathy Stuerzel and Neal Henshall we have received a loan from PPP and are working hard to make sure it becomes something we don’t have to pay back. 


8.  We are looking forward to having our store, CrossWords & Gifts opened in June. There will be protocols in place so that people are comfortable shopping once again. The doors will be opened several days a week and for reduced hours. So watch for more information.


9.  We are still looking for people to mow the lawn of the church. We have a lawnmower donated. You don’t have to bring your own. Please notify the church if you’re able to do it 631-588-9509. This will help us keep the cost down.


We know that for so many these are difficult days. We are juggling a lot of things including teaching our children at home. Should there be financial needs, food insecurity Or a need for prayer please do not hesitate to be in touch with the church office or with myself, 516-319-8761(cell).  Keeping you all in prayer!


And now may you know that the Lord goes before you paving the way, that the Lord goes behind you to  urge you along, alongside you to be your best friend and above you to watch out over you.


Much love and blessings,

Pastor Raggie
