Celebrate Recovery (CR) Update: The decision has been made to officially start our CR program to the community on Wednesday, February 1. You will hear a lot more about ways you can assist us in this very important outreach to our community in the coming weeks. It is our desire to help ourselves and our community to find the freedom that Jesus wants for each of us over the things of this world that hold us back.

Praying Together

Prayer gathering each Sunday from 10:15-10:25 a.m. in the Amen Corner. Spend ten minutes praying together for Pastor Jon, our church leadership, and building up our community of believers. We have a lot to be thankful for and many opportunities to serve and grow! No commitments necessary, just come as you are able.

Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them (Matthew 18:19-20).

Mental Health Coaching

We have kicked off a new ministry at Holy Cross called “Mental Health Coaching”. The leader of this ministry is Mike Dafoe. Mike has completed over 40 hours of training for this, but also comes with many years of experience as a counselor for the Veteran’s Administration. This is, however, mental health coaching, not a counseling ministry. Mike will be able to assist you in finding the right direction and resources you may need with personal mental health challenges or mental health challenges for people that are close to you. The work he will perform can be done on phone or Zoom. This is a free resource and will be handled in a confidential way. If you would like to talk with Mike, he can be reached at 605-309-7541 or dafoemike@aol.com.
