Second Sunday of Easter
April 11, 2021
Pastor - Jeff Stone
Sometimes, I just don’t know on what I should preach. Sermon preparation just stalls, and I stare at a screen and I just don’t know what to say. So, I’m going to do something different today. Instead of listening to me, let’s listen to John. Today the great apostle tells us his wisdom and we would do well to listen to him. Come to Holy Cross and listen to John. Jesus is here – for you!
Pastor's Message - John's Sermon
Holy Communion will be offered

Welcome to the Holy Cross Lutheran Church web site. We are glad you have stopped by as we gather before the altar of God the Father and beneath the cross of His Son, Jesus Christ. These are big days for our little congregation and we want you to share in our excitement with the spiritual leadership of Pastor Jeff Stone and pray that together we will grow in spirit and in numbers.
In God's Word today we hear about faith - no matter how little - that can accomplish great things in God's Kingdom. But we also hear a warning for those who would water down the Gospel and become a stumbling block to the faithful.
How are we called to respond to those who get in the way of the message of Christ Crucified? We call them to repent and then we forgive them. The church is in the forgiveness business. Faith, even a mustard seed sized faith clings to Jesus.
We are called to be faithful but also to remove the stumbling blocks that would cause other to lose faith. We are all unworthy servants and yet have been given a great responsibility with the faith we have. Faith is active and busy and even just a little can be used to bring the assurance of salvation to all who will hear.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us... Hebrews 12:1
