Due to the inclement weather and poor road conditions, the Ladies Guild/LWML will not be meeting tonight. The Holy Cross Ladies Guild meeting has been rescheduled for Monday, February 26 at 7:00 pm. Holy Cross and Ladies Guild members, please continue collecting your items for ICU Mobile. See the February 18 “Happenings” for more info on the ICU Mobile (Sharing Love in Our Community) collection.
Today, February 14, is Ash Wednesday (and Valentine’s Day). It marks the start of the penitential season of the church year called Lent. As in ancient Christian tradition, worshipers are invited forward to receive the imposition of ashes upon their forehead. The Ash Wednesday service begins at 7:00 pm. The sermon, “What is the Mission of God?”, is based on Colossians 1:19-20. “For in Him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of His cross.”
As a church family, we will be gathering for our annual Lenten Supper at 6:00 pm. It is a perfect opportunity to reconnect over a delicious meal.
The Holy Cross Ladies Guild (LWML) is having a sensationally sweet bake sale between the worship services TODAY, Sunday, February 11, 2018. Delicious treats can be purchased at the tables in the Commons area. All proceeds benefit the mission projects of the Holy Cross Ladies Guild and Lutheran Women’s Missionary League.
