Holy Cross Church and School

Sunday School

Sunday School meets each week after worship services to teach the good news of Christ’s life, death and resurrection to our children and youth. Sunday School begins with an opening devotion in the church sanctuary at 10:15, and then children are dismissed to classes ranging from pre-kindergarten to post-confirmation.  Teachers employ some very fun and innovative techniques during classes, including play-acting, props, and crafts, that make lessons inviting and memorable.  As part of the Sunday School curriculum, students also have the chance to perform Christmas and Easter pageants for the congregation. This is their opportunity to share their love for God with members of the congregation.

Vacation Bible School

During the summer, most often in June, Holy Cross holds Vacation Bible School (VBS), a week-long program of Bible stories and learning. Holy Cross conducts VBS between 6:30 and 8:30 in the evening so that all family members have the opportunity to attend. VBS includes Bible study, singing, games, arts and crafts, and socializing, and is energizing for children and adults alike.

Heavenly Harvest Food Pantry

Holy Cross Heavenly Harvest Food Pantry is established to alleviate the physical and emotional hunger of the poor and needy in our community in a dignified and supportive manner.

Amazing Grays

If you are an older adult or retiree looking to foster friendships and also share time for service projects, the Amazing Grays is ideal for you. The Amazing Grays meet every 4th Tuesday of the month at 12:00  noon in the church’s annex building. Parishioners from other churches in the area are also welcome to attend. The Grays read devotions at every meeting and invite guest speakers who deliver entertainment, Information and advice on a variety of topics, including health concerns, safety, and insurance. In December, the Amazing Grays hold a Christmas party to have fun, socialize and collect gifts for needy children. In addition, the Amazing Grays plan occasional bus trips to relax and enjoy attractions away from the city.

The Amazing Grays serve the Holy Cross community by preparing and serving luncheons after funerals. It’s a comfort to grieving families to know there are friendly and helpful people handling this task for them.

To participate in the Amazing Grays, you don’t have to be over 55 years old - or have gray hair - all adults are welcome!

Holy Cross Boosters

If you are a great social planner or organizer, then consider being an active member of Holy Cross Boosters.  The Boosters organize and help set up the annual Easter breakfast, congregational picnic, dinners, and other special events.  All members of Holy Cross Lutheran Church belong to the Boosters, but we also need leaders with great ideas and planning skills.


Easter Breakfast

After worship services on Easter Sunday, you can enjoy a pancake and egg breakfast, and fellowship with congregational family and friends. The breakfast is sponsored by the Boosters and helps raise money for church projects.


Congregational Picnic and Dinners

Every year, Holy Cross holds a summer picnic sponsored by the Boosters and Sunday School. There is a church service at 10:00 a.m. followed by fellowship, fun and games.  At various times during the year, the church may sponsor congregational dinners to socialize and raise funds for special projects.
