The hope and prayer for Holy Cross is to have a legacy to keep expanding for the next 60 years and beyond.

Goals

  • To raise $60,000 over the next fourteen months for a capital fund
  • This capital fund will cover the costs of our facility repair and maintenance.
  • Having a capital fund frees up our general fund to be used for missional and ministry purposes.

Members should have received the mailing that was sent out this fall. Within it, there was a brochure that lays out the details the campaign. 

We are asking members to do three things:

  1. To make a general fund commitment for 2022.
    This would be what you will give on a regular basis for 2022.
  2. To make a commitment for “Trusting in His Promises.” This will be over and above your normal giving (please do not cut back on your normal giving to fulfill this). You can give a year end gift for 2022 or make a pledge to give over the course of 2022.
  3. Pray for the success of this campaign collectively and also how God is leading you to respond.
Click HERE to make a one-time offering or a commitment to give throughout the year. Whether you give online or through regular offering, please designate the amount going to “Trusting in His Promises” and the amount that you wish to go to the general fund. Please remember that money given to “Trusting in His Promises” are offerings given above and beyond normal giving.
This video link will share the basic information about the campaign.  

 

Missions Opportunities

The Shoebox Mission Drive in December was very successful and a lot of supplies were received and delivered to be shared with families and individuals in need.  Great job, people of Holy Cross.

New Hospice Volunteer Opportunity: Pastor Tim Duerr and Stoneridge Hospice could use your help! Holy Cross’ very own Beverly Fletcher is leading the residents at a Scottsdale group home in Music Therapy on Wednesdays from 1-2PM. We could use a couple of volunteers to assist the residents with finding the songs and turning the pages of their songbooks. If you are interested in this fun opportunity or if you would like to help other patients as they go through this special time we will provide the required training, fingerprinting and Hospice volunteer certification. Contact Pastor Tim Duerr at: tduerr@srhospice.com.
