Wednesday Lenten Services Coming Soon!
The season of Lenten is a special time of looking first at the depth of our sin, and then at the depth of Christ's love for us in his passion and suffering. Lent begins this year on Ash Wednesday, February 22.  Services will be at 3:30pm (In-Person Only) and 6:30pm (In-Person, Live Streamed & Phone)

The 3:30pm service makes attendance easier for school families and those who do not like to drive at night. 

Our theme this year is 'His Final Steps'

March 1 -  His Final Steps Led to a Dinner Celebration
March 8 -  His Final Steps Led to His Father's House
March 15 -  His Final Steps Led to Some Greeks

Easter Flowers
Even though Easter isn’t until April 9, it’s time to order Easter flowers for the altar.  You may order Easter lilies or pink azaleas.  Orders must be in by Monday, February 20.   There is a box on the counter in the Welcome Center with order forms.  If you worship from home, you may call Jan Schattschneider at 608-244-8340 or email Jan at schetc@charter.net to place your order.  Easter lilies are $18.00 and pink azaleas are $38.00.  You may pick up your plant(s) after the second service on Easter Sunday or during the following week to enjoy at home or to give to a home-bound member, family member or friend.  Make checks payable to Holy Cross Altar Guild.

Holy Cross Open House - Summer in the Winter
Join Us for our School and Early Learning Center Open House on Saturday, January 28th from 9:00am to 12:00pm.

Twice Is Nice February 2023 new
Thank you for another wonderful year! It is only through the combined and faithful efforts and dedication of volunteers and shoppers who made it possible to finish another year amazingly strong. Keep visiting us and finding those fantastic bargains. We’re open 10-4 Monday through Saturday, and close only for major holidays and when Lakeside closes because of severe weather. We’re just a minute east on the Hwy 18 exit off the Hwy 26 bypass at 907 W. Racine St in Jefferson. Thank you for shopping local and small for the big deals!

Volunteer: We are so grateful for more new volunteers, including Bruce Davis (St. Paul, Lake Mills), Kaleb Jose (St. John Catholic, Jefferson), Jess Meyer (Wisconsin Chapel, Madison), and Lois Schultz (St. John’s, Jefferson) as well as several Lakeside students. Give us a try yourself! We continue to have many spots for new faces, with specific need in Fall/Halloween, Christmas (yes, already! sorting and pricing for next October) Coats (sorting and pricing), Artificial Flowers, Sporting Goods, Seasonal Garden Flags & Toddler Clothing. We have the training and time slot you need to be a part of our team. Could you gather a couple friends from your congregation and volunteer for a day each month? Call 920-674-6868, ask for the day manager from 10-4 any time we're open.
