Our four primary goals

Since God has richly blessed us with every spiritual and earthly gift we have, it is our privilege, as Luther says, “to thank and praise, serve and obey Him.” Also in response to His love and goodness, we seek to be a blessing to others around us. The leaders, members and staff of Holy Cross have heard God’s call to us to Reach the Lost & Strengthen the Saved!

It is our firm belief that God who is able to do “immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20) will bless our efforts throughout the current capital campaign to accomplish the funding of these four primary goals which in turn will help us fulfill our calling to Reach the Lost and Strengthen the Saved.

Our Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,

You have richly blessed us with every spiritual and earthly gift we have, and in response, it is our heart-felt desire to “thank and praise, serve and obey You.”

For nearly seventy-five years, You have blessed us to be a blessing to others.  We have heard Your call for us to “Reach the Lost and Strengthen the Saved!”  By Your grace and the power of Your Holy Spirit, equip, encourage, embolden and Bless us as we do so!

In Jesus’ precious name,

Amen.
