Father’s Day Prayer
Heavenly Father, bless all earthly fathers. May they draw encouragement from your promises to take their role seriously and carry out their responsibilities diligently. Draw them into your Word for direction and strength to be good and godly leaders for their families. If they struggle to be present, give them your grace to take a more active role. If they are too harsh, may they learn compassion from you. If they are too lax, may they learn godly discipline from you. Grant that their children receive a legacy of faith in you, as fathers teach and model you in their lives. Amen. (taken from the current Meditations Daily Devotional)

Pray for Our Graduates!
Congratulations to the 8th graders who graduated from Holy Cross... and to all of our Holy Cross youth who are graduating from 8th grade, high school or college! Please remember to pray for these young people as they prepare to enter into high school, college or the workforce. With social media and public school agendas, our young people are increasingly bombarded with un-Christian and anti-Christian ideas that will be made to sound tolerant and loving and accepting. It's important for our young people to know that their congregation cares about them and is praying for them! Thank you!

VBS Supply List
As we prepare for VBS in early July, please consider donating:
VBS - Make an Impact
Vacation Bible School makes an impact on kids's lives. How about helping make an impact this year! VBS will be July 6-9 (Tuesday - Friday). While we've already got most of our teaching staff, our craft leader and our music leader in place, they could use helpers. If you're willing to help with crafts, music, recess or in the classroom, please email Jodi at email@example.com. Thank you!
VBS - Snacks During Covid
Any other year we would be asking you to help make and bring snacks for VBS. We always get such a good group of snack volunteers. However, due to Covid, we'll have to provide all of the snacks ourselves using our food service director. If you would be willing to help by making a small monetary donation to help us purchase snacks for VBS, it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
