“We are not divided, All one body we” is a well-known line from the classic Christian hymn “Onward, Christian Soldiers.” It speaks to the unity we have in Christ Jesus, who calls us to be one. The well-loved hymn was written by Rev. Sabine Baring-Gould for a procession of Sunday School students in England. By using language images appropriate to adults, he was showing that he expected the best from the children for whom he was writing. Paul expected the best from the Corinthian Christians, even though he knew well the difficulties being experienced by the congregation at Corinth. As he wrote to them, he stated that they were “called to be saints together with all those who in every place call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 1:2). By God’s grace, we are numbered among those saints!
Pastor's Message -
Holy Communion will be offered
SUNDAY SCHOOL FOR ALL AGES. Sunday School is continuing for everyone. Our Adult class on Sunday morning will parallel the Children’s Sunday School time. We will begin…… well….. “In the Beginning!!!” We will start with Genesis and make our way through the Bible over the course of the next 3 years. Granted, not everything will be covered completely, but we will hit the major stories in chronological order and discuss their importance to us both Spiritually, and from the standpoint of our daily Christian lives in the present. Join us on Sundays at 9:00am.
Mission & Ministry
Our mission statement: “To glorify Jesus Christ through extending His Kingdom by Caring, Equipping and Sending people to change the world."
Our desire is to connect people to Jesus because he is the only hope for the world.
The head of the church is Jesus Christ, and his life and ministry reflect certain values that guide us in everything that we do. We have five Core Values: Worship, Education, Mission, Service, and Fellowship
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 Steve 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
