CONGRATULATIONS people of Holy Cross!!

 

 

This past week, we exceeded our goal of $60,000. In fact, we are closer to $64,000. Please don’t stop!! It is obvious we underestimated what God would do through us. Many of us, including myself, have made commitments for this campaign that we would fulfill over the course of 2022. Let’s keep pushing forward and see even more what God will do through us with the “Trusting in His Promises” capital campaign.
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.
Online Giving to Holy Cross

 

The Prayer Chain allows for rapid access to prayer in case of emergencies and other challenging situations. Please contact Kris Ensign (Prayer Chain Leader) or contact the church office.

 

Amazon Smile & Thrivent Financial

If you are a member of Amazon Prime or Thrivent Financial, you have the opportunity to have of portion of the money you spend or invest come to Holy Cross.  If you are a member of Amazon Prime, go into your Amazon account and select “Programs & Features”.  Then select Amazon Smile and designate Holy Cross Lutheran as your charity of choice.  A percentage of most purchases will go to Holy Cross and cost you nothing.  For those who are Thrivent members, you have the opportunity to designate Thrivent dollars to the charity of your choice.  It is based on what you have invested with Thrivent.  Again, it does not cost you anything, but this charity that Thrivent provides can benefit our congregation.  If you need help with either of these options, please contact the church office.
