OUTREACH MINISTRY

Outreach is Holy Cross' way of practicing what we are told in Hebrews 13:16: "To not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices, God is pleased."  Our joy is to honor God and enrich the lives of people in our church family as they get involved and care for the people locally, in Lake Ronkonkoma, Long Island, the nation and throughout the world.  

We are blessed with many volunteers.  And when the call goes out that we have a need or a special project, hands go up, feet hit the ground running and a lot of things happen.

Regular Outreach Events

  • We administer a very busy Food Pantry

  • We give away food baskets weekly and on special holidays

  • We host yard sales to raise money for the Pastor's Discretionary Fund

  • We have created PINK scarves to honor Breast Cancer survivors which are given away at the many walks hosted in the New York Metro area

  • We knit and crochet baby hats to go to World Vision

  • We support our local veterans with donations to the Long Island Veterans Home in Stonybrook

  • We knit and crochet hats, mittens and scarves for various organizations

  • We give away into the community 75+ school backpacks each Fall

  • We give out Easter Love Baskets (special little baskets of candy trinkets and a card) for those who are unable to get out or have no one

  • Valentine's Love Cans are chock full of "goodies" given to our local Adult Home and Assisted Living Facility and others

  • The Angel Tree at Christmas supports 10-15 families; purchasing gifts and gift cards and many extras

  • We joyfully participate in Operation Christmas Child of Samaritan Purse.  Creating 75-125 shoe boxes full of gifts for children throughout the world

  • Souper Bowl Sunday we ask for soup donations for the Food Pantry

We believe that "the local church is the hope of the world."  Each church, each house of worship, each Christian organization needs to make a difference.  This is some of the ways we at Holy Cross do this.
