As single adults or married adults with children, getting connected at Holy Cross is about relationships that get beneath the surface. We are bombarded daily with all sorts of messages that pull us in many different ways. Our vision gets cloudy and our relationship with God compromised. Building meaningful and transparant relationships in the context of our church community is the way to strengthen and encourage us to walk on in the path toward our Lord.

  2. Spiritual Odyssey – A one day event during the beginning of Lent to reflect on ourselves and our Lenten journey.

  3. Family Sharing Program – Join each December in the sponsoring of a Christmas food and toy collection drive for the needy.

  4. Sunday Ushering - Help maintain order during the various parts of Sunday and other services.
