Announcements

For the Week Starting 01/21

THE HOLY CROSS ANNUAL MEETING is at 11:45 a.m. on Sunday, January 21.  Please show your support for your congregation and plan to attend.

THE 2017 ANNUAL REPORT has been completed and copies are available on the narthex table.  As stated in the Annual Voters’ Meeting notice, this document was published a week ahead of the meeting so that you would have time to read through the various reports prior to attending.  Whether or not you are able to attend the Annual Meeting, please take a copy as you leave church today.

CAN YOU SERVE AS A FELLOWSHIP HOST ON A SUNDAY MORNING?  Pick a week that works with your schedule.  We have openings for hosts during the next several weeks, with an immediate need for a host for next week, January 28.

PANCAKE DAY – ON SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 11, immediately following the late service.  We will serve a variety of pancakes, including gluten free, sausage, fruit, Danish, muffins and more!  Enjoy this wonderful way to welcome our Lenten season.  Families and friends welcome.  A sign-up sheet will be on the narthex table.  Questions – or want to help – contact Edith Skoog or Cindy Ciccia.

DO YOU, OR DOES SOMEONE YOU KNOW, NEED A PRESCHOOL? Registration for the 2018-2019 school year at our very own Holy Cross Christian Preschool has begun!  Part-day and full-day programs are offered for Pre-K, 4s, and 3s.  For details about the curriculum, or to schedule a visit, phone or e-mail our Preschool Director, Michele Glennon: 203-268-6471preschool@holycrosstrumbull.com.

THE 2018 WORSHIP SUPPLIES AND ALTAR FLOWER CHARTS are on the hallway bulletin board as you approach the Fellowship Hall.  Whomever you would like to honor or remember will be included in our bulletin…it’s a nice way to honor or remember a loved one!  Altar flowers for a week, or one of our worship supplies for a month, are available to fund and need your support.  It’s always nice to celebrate someone’s birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion in this fashion.  

ONGOING COLLECTION:  Our Sunday School is collecting NEW hats and mittens/glove sets to outfit children with Covenant to Care for Children—the children in our “adopted” DCF social worker’s caseload.  Please put these donations in the designated collection box in the narthex.  Watch for sales as this winter outerwear will be given to our social worker on an as-needed basis.

LUTHERAN WITNESS SUBSCRIPTIONS are due TODAY.  Please adhere to this deadline as set by the District Office.  The cost is $10.80 for 12 issues.  Make your check payable to Holy Cross Lutheran, noting “Lutheran Witness” on your check.  DO NOT PUT THIS SUBSCRIPTION FEE IN THE OFFERING PLATE.  Please put your check in the “Church Office” mailbox—the subscriber information needs to be recorded in the church office.
