Life Stage Ministries at Holy Cross

While most of our mission and ministry work is inter-generational, we also have specific life stage ministries which can help you face life's challenges and grow deeper in your connection to God.  Find a group and connect with a community of imperfect people working through life.

 


Children's Ministry

Holy Cross provides a variety of programs for pre-school and elementary age children:

- Our community award-winning before/after school weekday Children's Center
- Our yearly week long Vacation Bible School
- Weekday Summer Camp for kindergarten and elementary age children
- Kidz of the Kingdom (ages 3-5th grade) meets each Sunday after Worship 10:45-11:45 am, starting with music before breaking off into age based classes.  Kids learn through reading their Bibles, as well as with crafts and games.

Phaze4 - College+ Age Ministry

College is not only a time of fun and learning but also stress.  Finding a job upon graduation seems more and more challenging let alone establishing a career.  Holy Cross is blessed to provide an active group for sharing experiences, exploring faith topics and getting support to navigate this challenging period of life.

We meet in a home every Tuesday night at 7pm for a meal, Bible Study and fellowship.   Those away at college join when they're on break while local students and those recently graduated continue to meet.   Looking for a safe environment to discuss faith, God and spiritual life?  Come join us by contacting Marie Russell through the church office.

Good Tidings Worship Group - Practices Sundays & leads worship on the 1st Sunday of each month
Join other College age youth and High Schoolers in this music group that leads contemporary worship services twice a month during the school year.  It doesn't matter how much musical talent you have, just your desire to praise the Lord.


GEMS (God's Energized Mobilized Seniors)

The senior years are not just a time to compare medical challenges but a rich, rewarding time to live life, explore new things, and share your life lessons with all generations.

Our seniors currently have two Bible Studies - Monday mornings and Wednesday mornings both at 10:30am.  Each month may bring a new activity - lunches, topical presentations, or just plain spending time together.

The GEMS also head up our Nursing Home ministry which visits one Nursing Home each week to share songs and a word of encouragement to the residents.  Everyone is welcome to join us.  Check the church calendar for the next time and location or contact the church office if you'd like to participate.

Come celebrate the gift of years that God has given you by connecting with others at Holy Cross.  Contact Mary Ann Van Sicklen or Ele Anderson through the church office for more info.
