The Eighteenth Sunday After Pentecost
September 26, 2021
Pastor - Jeff Stone
Sometimes knowing the end of the story can help you when a book or movie is slow and boring. James today reminds us that the resurrection of Jesus means that we have a hope and a future. Knowing that end makes us able to endure the trials of life and give ourselves in service to one another. Come to Holy Cross and learn more – Jesus is here – for you!
Pastor's Message - What Does A Name Do?
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
