aBOUT HOLY CROSS
Holy Cross celebrates our 60th anniversary in 2020.
We do so moving forward for another 60+ years of ministry.
After having spent some time in 2019 looking forward,
2020 is a year when we move forward even in these uncertain times.
Led by our Congregational Council
Following our Looking Forward process, Council took time to carefully review the results of the report and prepare an action plan.
The time we are in right now, has called on the church to adjust. This should be no surprise, and really should be the case for churches each and every day -- we adjust to the world around us, while remaining rooted in our faith that God loves the world. As the world changes, our response to the needs of the world changes, but our love and God's love for all of God's people does not change.
A rich variety of gifts
Holy Cross is governed by an Annual Meeting of members. Monthly the Congregational Council meets to carry out the work of the church. Council members are elected at the Annual Meeting.

Evolving during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Much has changed in the world since the spread of COVID-19. Holy Cross' response has been to move much of the congregational ministry online. Holy Cross will continue to evaluate ways to reach out to people where they are -- at home -- online -- staying safe.
