Mission Activities 

Czech English Camp

We recently came back from our 15th Czech Youth English Camp held in July of this year.  Learn about this special ministry opportunity even if it's only a maybe idea for you.  Teens and adults participate with significant financial help from donations to Short-term Missions and fund-raisers sponsored by the Missions Committee.  We serve with partners from Shepherd of the Valley and the great team in the Czech Republic.  Fellowship, music, friendships, witnessing all fill this amazing week of growth and service among the Lord's young people.  Questions?  Call Marie Russell via the church office. 


Continue Praying for our Missionary Partners

- The Oliver family serves in Taiwan at the China Lutheran seminary

- The Cima family serving in Cambodia.   

- A missionary family serving in Central Asia. 

We are so blessed to be connected in faith and prayer and support of these faithful servants of our Lord. We frequently receive updates from each of them as they respond to opportunities God provides for them as they share the Good News of Christ’s love in very difficult situations. God is truly working wonders through them.


Plan Ahead - Mission Committee Opportunities

Join us when the Mission Committee meets to plan and encourage participation in all our great mission opportunities. We meet about once each quarter (announced in our bulletins).  Holy Cross is truly blessed for this on-going ministry spreading the Gospel in so many ways.  These meetings are full of the Lord’s Spirit. We’ll be completing plans for the annual Bowl-a-thon for Missions, the next Czech Republic Youth English Camp, the Missions fundraisers, and all the other opportunities coming ahead in 2018 and 2019. Questions? Call the church office, 408-356-3525.
