The Seventh Sunday of Easter
Memorial Day is much more than remembering those who have sacrificed for our Nation. Many serve and sacrifice their lives, however not simply on the battlefield. On any given day, 22 veterans lose their lives upon returning from battle. The fight never left them completely, and haunts them. They should be remembered for the sacrifice they have made as well. But the greatest sacrifice ever made in battle, was the sacrifice of Jesus in the war against sin, death and satan. While the war has been won, the battles still wage in our daily lives. Yet, Jesus equips us for battle. He provides a “memorial Meal” in which we rest in his victory and remind ourselves of His sacrifice. In that sacrifice, we have been guaranteed freedom, life eternal and forgiveness of our sins.
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

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
