Young Adults Huddle

Sunday, August 21st at 10:00am in the Fireside Room

Our Young Adults group (20’s & 30’s) aims to meet the ever-changing needs of the young adults community. The main focus for our young adults is fellowship and growth in God’s Word.

Right after the 9:00am service Pastor Tweit would like to have as many Young Adults as possible to huddle in the fireside room for a 20-30 talk to discuss: frequency of getting together, Bible Study topics, communication and next steps.


Kickball Game

Join us Sunday, August 28th starting after service for kickball and grilled food. The games will be played in the Holy Cross field and all ages are welcome. Brats, chips, cookies and water will be provided for lunch. Please use the Sign Up Genius link to let us know if you can attend (and if you want to be a team captain). https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0F4FAAA92AABFA7-family

Holy Cross Young Adults

It was stormy in June when we wanted to go the last time, so we put Devil’s Lake back on the calendar for August! All young adults are invited to come on August 20 for a hike at Devil’s Lake State Park. We will gather at 11:30am at Devil's Lake. Meet at the North Shore by the shelter to the east of the main lodge/gift shop. Picnic lunch during Bible Study, then afternoon hike.  

Let me know if you are planning to come, or if you would like more information.

I look forward to seeing you soon!
