We believe that God’s Word is the source and norm for our faith and life. God’s Word is the written Word of Holy Scripture, the spoken Word proclaimed in preaching and study, and the Living Word, Jesus Christ, who is revealed to us.
Children & Youth
Our educational ministry for children in preschool through 5th grade allows us a weekly encounter with God’s Word through song and story, art, and activities. Faith Formation meets on Sunday mornings during our education hour at 9:15am during the school year.
A group of 6-7-8-9th grade students engage the Scriptures through fun activities, conversation, and begin developing habits for the Christian life. Youth4Him meets on Sunday mornings during our education hour at 9:15am during the school year.
During the first full week of August, we host a fantastic multi-generational Vacation Bible School! Children get the time to sing, create, learn, and play while youth and caring adults support the ministry and learn alongside our children. Holy Cross is fully alive during VBS! This year, VBS will take place August 5-8, 2019.
Adults have several opportunities to grow in faith through study of Scripture and theology. There are two opportunities for pastor-led study each week: Sunday mornings at 9:15am during the school year and at 8:30am in the summer. Monday Night Bible Study meets at 7:00pm during the school year.
Sunday Morning Adult Bible Class: This weekly class is based on the readings we hear in worship and help us to get a fuller understanding of the Scriptures. On occasion, we may study a topic of interest.
Monday Night Theme: 7:00 p.m. The Bethel Series presents a total framework for building a strong foundation of biblical understanding in simple language, so students do not need a strong theological background. The Bible is the textbook and the program is carefully planned to give the Scriptures relevancy and equips adult members to apply the Word to their lives. The Bethel series begins October 2019 and the cost is $80.
