“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
The “&” in Witness & Service underscores that there are two different elements to this ministry at Holy Cross. Witness is the work we have been given to do as Christians. We have opportunities to speak of Jesus with the people in our everyday lives. Service is the work we do together as a church. It is the combined effort of outreach, ministries, events and other activities through which we invite and include others into our church family. Witness & Service are distinct, but they work together so people will know of Jesus and be gathered into His Church through us.
The Witness and Service Commission usually meets the 2nd Monday of each month and invites all members of the congregation to attend. Check the Church calendar for dates and times or contact Erica Gaither for more information.
Once a month the Witness & Service commission and volunteers from our congregation come together to prepare and serve a meal for our members and their guests. Our 2nd Saturday meal takes place after Saturday Worship Service (usually around 7:00 p.m.) on the 2nd Saturday of every month. It provides a wonderful opportunity for fellowship, we hope you’ll join us for our next meal. If you are interested in volunteering or preparing a meal please contact Kathy Beal.
Meets in the Church Office twice a month area to write notes of appreciation, make a friendly phone contact to worship guests, write care notes, or prepare letters of welcome to people new to our community or other specialized mailings. All are welcome to attend, please contact Sara Schubert with any questions.
On the first Wednesday of every month volunteers from Holy Cross prepare and serve a meal to the homeless community in Wichita. If you’d like to be a part of this amazing team of volunteers or would like to donate food for the meal please contact Sharon Pauls.
We strive to educate, inspire and enlist our church in the global mission of sharing the Good News of Christ. To learn more about mission opportunities please contact Erica Gaither
