Hello and Welcome - We are Glad You Found Us!

Note our Sunday Worship time for Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend:

Sunday, May 29, through Sunday, Sept. 4, our Sunday Worship Service time is at 9:00 a.m.

We also offer a Worship Service on Mondays at 7:00 p.m. (However, there is not a Monday service on the summer holidays, Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day.)




SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICE TIME CHANGE REMINDER:  Take note that one week from today, May 29, is the start of our one-service Sunday schedule for the summer.  On the Sundays of Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend, our Sunday service is at 9 a.m.

IF YOU ARE A WORSHIP SERVICE VOLUNTEER, the 3rd quarter schedules have been distributed into the family mailboxes.  If you are an acolyte, usher, reader, deacon, greeter, or serve on the Altar Guild, please look in your mailbox for the July, August and September schedules.  Please also know that you can access the current monthly chart of Worship Service Volunteers on our church’s website.  Go to www.holycrosstrumbull.org , click on the “Resources” heading for a drop-down box, and navigate to the “Serving Page” link.

AN ANNOUNCEMENT FROM OUR HEAD SHEPHERD, John Anantharaj:  A few Sundays ago Pastor Wismar challenged our church family to contact members that we hadn’t seen in quite some time.  Many of you have prayerfully and courageously stepped forward to make these calls – some of you making multiple calls – and would like to share the results.  I would invite you to please send any feedback you may have to my email address:bsjohn@gmail.com.  Thank you for your care and effort, in the name of our living Lord, Jesus Christ!

IF YOU ARE GRADUATING from high school or college this month or in June, we encourage you to share the details about this milestone with your church family.  We plan to recognize all of our graduates in the July/August newsletter.  Please take a lavender-colored “Graduate Information” form, found on the narthex table, fill it out, and return it by June 12 to the church office mailbox.

PRESCHOOL REGISTRATION is underway for the 2016-2017 school year.  We offer both part-day and full-day programs, and have classes for three age groups: Pre-K, 4s, and 3s.  For all details and to set up a visit, phone or e-mail our Preschool Director, Michele Glennon, at 203-268-6471 or  preschool@holycrosstrumbull.com.
