Ash Wednesday

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.

Showing Love to Those Who Value LIFE

January was Life month where we heard about valuing life at all stages on Life Sunday.  During the month of February join with the Holy Cross Ladies Guild and show your love for those that value life. Image Clear Ultrasound (ICU Mobile) is a local medical facility which operates from a 31-foot renovated RV, furnished with an ultrasound, exam table, and flat screen TV for viewing ultrasounds. Formerly known as Alpha Women’s Center, ICU Mobile has existed since 1982 to support women with unintended pregnancies through the provision of spiritual, physical, and emotional support. Their confidential free medical services enable women of all financial circumstances to receive a free pregnancy test and, if appropriate, a free limited obstetrical ultrasound.

ICU Mobile give little gift packs that include pampering items, a bible and prayer book to the moms-to-be that visit. It’s their way to help show someone cares for them when so many of them aren’t yet too excited about having a baby.

During the month of February we will be collecting lip balm, small lotions, cozy socks, small wrapped chocolates, or $5 gift cards to area coffee shops or Subway.  Items can be dropped off in the collection box under the LWML bulletin board in the Commons Area. Contact Joy Anderson at 612-423-1204 if you have questions.
