Pastor Jon’s Response to the Call from Holy Cross
Dear Members and Friends of Holy Cross Lutheran Church,
I am deeply honored that you have issued me a Divine Call to be your Pastor. It has been an amazing privilege to serve you over the past couple years in a contract position. You are a wonderful group of believers and it has been such a joy for me to get to know you on a personal level. I see such amazing potential for the future for Holy Cross and I am convinced that God has incredible things He wants to accomplish through our mission and ministry. We are seeing growth in so many ways through what the Lord is doing through us. I want to share this future with you.
After prayer and seeking God’s will, I am convinced that the Lord has led me to make a decision. I humbly accept the Call you have sent me and I am excited to take on the role as your Called Pastor. The best is yet to come and with God’s Spirit leading us, exciting days are ahead as we follow His will to grow in discipleship, serving one another and leading others into His Kingdom.
In His Service,
Pastor Jon Bjorgaard

CODE RED MISSION PROJECT
On Sunday, June 27, the mission team kicked off CODE RED by collecting essential items for the Phoenix Rescue Mission for the Summer Tote Drive. Items will be collected from June 27-July 25.
Items needed: toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, Lip balm, or Chapstick, body or hand lotion, new pairs of socks, granola or snack bars, white T-shirts, caps, or bandannas, sunscreen, Christian tracts, an inspiring note or pocket-sized Bibles (optional). A list of items is available on the bulletin table. Items can be placed in the colored containers in the back of the church. Items can be purchased at the Dollar Store.
We can make a difference by showing we care by reaching out to the homeless who are living on the streets in the unrelenting heat.
