Our theme this year is “Summer in the Winter.”  We’ll have live music from Bahama Bob,  bounce houses, games in the gym, summer-time treats, a photo booth and more.  Bring the family and have summer fun on a cold January Saturday.   Invite friends who may be interested in our School or Early Learning Center.  Staff will be here to join in the fun, meet prospects, and talk with them about whether our school or early learning center is a good fit for them.  More details to come soon!


2022 Altar Flower Chart

The altar flower chart is posted on the bulletin board in the Welcome Center near the Fireside Room.  Sign up with your name, contact information, and the occasion if you would like to provide flowers for the altar.  You can bring in your own flowers or the Altar Guild will order flowers for you.  The usual bouquet is $40 but you can make it any amount you like.  Make checks payable to HOLY CROSS ALTAR GUILD.  Drop off or mail your check in an envelope marked ALTAR FLOWERS.  You may take the bouquet after the last church service and enjoy it at home.

New Year, New Bible Study! 

A Young Adults Bible Study and Fellowship Group is kicking off at the end of  February.

Join the group at Holy Cross for opportunities to dig into God's Word with Pastor Tweit and enjoy fellowship with other young adults. 

Right now we are thinking of meeting every other week. Let us know if you have an interest by contacting Lauren Farquhar at LFarquhar10@gmail.com or 612-865-3199. We will decide on the date and time of the first meeting.



The Christmas Shopping Event was a great success because of the gracious support of our donors, shoppers, and volunteer workers.  It was apparent that the opportunity to downsize accumulated Christmas decorations was welcomed by many Holy Cross members.  On Saturday members and guests enjoyed complimentary coffee and donuts.  The huge quantity and excellent quality of the re-sale items, the big selection of Scholastic books, and the charming Thai Village arts & crafts were greatly appreciated by a slow but steady stream of shoppers on Saturday, and a large number of shoppers between services on Sunday set the final re-sale total of the event at $1,508. 

Unsold items were taken to Twice is Nice, Agrace, and Goodwill (St. Vincent’s had stopped accepting 2021 Christmas decoration donations).  Ray Beutler’s name was drawn for the door prize – a 500-piece Nativity jigsaw puzzle by Lang.  Proceeds from the re-sale will go toward church needs, income from the Book Fair will go toward school needs, and income from the Thai Village will go back to Thailand to support the work of Christians there.  Many thanks to all who participated!
