A Word of Hope and Comfort from God’s Word
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” Prov. 3:5-6
We pray…. “Forgive me, Lord, for the anxieties from placing my trust in the things of this world – the media and numerous media sources and the opinions of others. Thank You for those who do have knowledge and plans that are helpful for all, help their voices to be heard. Protect me and others from the plans of those who are not concerned about the truth, nor welfare of others but only their own agenda. As I regularly read Your Word and Your Word is in me, give me a loving heart and life to point others to You, the source of truth and life. Amen!”
+ NEW… Due to the generosity of those who recently planned, organized and served the “Wonderful Weekend Meals,” prepared by School Chef Ashley Mayes, the Holy Cross LOVE Fund was aided greatly! (This fund was established many years ago to be used, primarily, at the discretion of the pastors and the Business Manager, as a way to provide “one-time assistance” to Holy Cross members and members of the community who presented a legitimate need for assistance with paying for food, a portion of their utilities, rent, gas in order to get to work, etc.) LOVE fund gifts have recently assisted in partial rent payments ($2,500) for two Holy Cross members and someone suggested to us by Kansans for Life; ($20) for gas money for a Holy Cross Visitor; ($250) to assist with medical bills for an Embrace mother who chose not to have an abortion. Contributions continue to be welcome.
+ NEW… This weekend we will be introducing a new bulletin format. The smaller size will allow us to save on printing costs while still providing you all of the information about worship, news and events. The smaller format does not allow us to print out the words to the hymns in the bulletin. However, single sheets with the words will be available for you at the Visitor’s Center.
+ You are encouraged to bring your face mask and wear it for worship on Saturday night (6 p.m.) and the early Sunday service (8:15 a.m.) as a way to demonstrate care for yourself and for others. As we wait for this pandemic to come to an end, we seek to show our love to those around us and to do all things to the glory and honor of God. For the sake of those who are concerned to come to worship at Holy Cross because others are not wearing face coverings, we will observe a “MASKS-only service” at the 11:00 a.m. service. We will continue this practice until further notice. Out of loving, Christian care for your sisters and brothers, please do NOT attend the 11:00 a.m. service unless you wear a mask. If you come for worship, and accidentally forget yours, we will provide one for you.
