"Let your roots grow down into him and draw up nourishment from him. See that you go on growing in the Lord, and become strong and vigorous in the truth you were taught. Let your lives overflow with joy and thanksgiving for all he has done."
Colossians 2:7 (LB)
Holy Cross emphasizes instruction in Christian truths for all ages, believing it to be a life-long process. We therefore offer a full range of learning opportunities. The following programs are available at Holy Cross:
Our church offers a wonderful, free, Christian Education hour weekly for children from age 3 through high school. A different Bible story is explored each week, using traditional scripture and integration with real-life connection. The children participate in numerous group productions such as our Christmas and Palm Sunday programs. At the end of the school year in May, the Sunday School classes will showcase an end-of-school-year display showing what what they have learned. The children also enjoy taking part in other activities such as the “Operation Christmas Child” program, where shoeboxes are filled with toys and essentials, then distributed to needy children all over the world. And new this year, the Sunday School is sponsoring a winter hat and mitten/glove collection to help out the children and youth under the care of Covenant to Care for Children. Donations of these NEW items may be left in the designated box in the narthex.
The school year begins on Sunday, September 10. The children meet from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. every Sunday except during the Christmas break and Easter Sunday. Church membership is NOT a requirement, and friends are always welcome! The 2017-2018 school year registration forms are available on the narthex table at the church.

Vacation Bible School
Every summer, usually the second full week of August, Holy Cross offers VBS to not only its members, but to children in our community. Our 2017 VBS will be Monday-Friday, August 7 to 11, from 9 a.m. to noon each day. This year's theme is "Hero Central: Discover Your Strength in God." Holy Cross' VBS is open to all children grades Kindergarten through Grade 5 (grade entering in Sept. 2017). We would love to have your child(ren) be a part of this exciting week of learning and growing in Christ through a daily Bible story, crafts, snack n' stories, music and outdoor fun. The 2017 registration form and description sheet are available at the church, or you may print out the forms at home; click here to open and print the form. Completed forms and the registration fee may be delivered via postal mail or in person to the church office (office is open daily from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.).
The Holy Cross Youth group is a group of teens (grades 7 through 12) who gather several times each year. These gatherings promote social and community outreach activities. All are welcome to attend. Click here to open and view or print the 2017-2018 schedule of activities.
The Holy Cross library has books for both young and old and is a great opportunity to read literature that is meaningful. Getting into the habit of allowing your young one to select a “Bible story for the week” will help both your child and you to grow in Christ together. So stop by and borrow a book today.
