Holy Cross Oxford is a community welcoming all people of all ages to Follow Jesus, Learn and Grow.
Everyone’s invited to follow Jesus: young and old, married and single, rich and poor, every nation and race. You don’t have to have it all together, in fact, you probably won't. That's why Jesus came for you.
The first thing Jesus does with those he invites to follow him is teach them. Are you listening to what Jesus is teaching you? We learn what life is like by listening to Jesus, and we're learning as we go.
When we follow Jesus and learn from Him, we grow in faith in Him and in love for one another. He doesn't require our perfection, but He invites our participation in the work He's doing in the world around us.
HOLY CROSS CHRISTIAN PRESCHOOL
Jesus is at the center of everything we do at Holy Cross Christian Preschool. Our curriculum is designed to mesh appropriate materials and equipment with the delopmental needs of children as they gain mastery over the important foundation skills that are the forerunner to reading, writing, and arithmetic.
We live out our mission by exploring our faith, experiencing God's grace, and expressing our faith in love.
Jesus says those who have been forgiven much love much. We seek to share God's love in our families, our church, and in our community. We love because He first loved us. We express our faith in love by serving our community and our church.
We can learn a lot about who Jesus is by looking at who is in His family. Abraham is the second person listed in Jesus’ family in Matthew’s Gospel. Jesus is the Son of Abraham, which means Jesus was the son who was promised! God prepares us for a purpose and He provides! We continue our sermon series “Who Is Jesus?” by looking at Jesus, the Son of Abraham.
We can learn a lot about who Jesus is by looking at who is in His family. Jesus is the son of David, and David was a King. That makes Jesus a King. But Jesus is a different kind of King and He rules a different kind of kingdom. We begin our new sermon series: “Who Is Jesus?”
Jonah ends with a question and a cliffhanger. Would you be willing to share your most embarrassing moment with others if it meant they might see God differently? We conclude our sermon series “I Wish You Were Dead” and look at what it means that God’s love is for all people.
Running from God and released from the beast. What does Jonah do when God gives him a do over? Does anything change with his second chance? Chapter three shows us how we need a better solution than second chances, we need a substitute. We continue our sermon series “I Wish You Were Dead.”
After running from God and finding himself as fish food, Jonah throws up desperate prayer. Three days in the belly of a giant fish can change a man. When do we pray? When do we invite God to act in our lives? We wrestle with Jonah’s prayer in week two of our sermon series “I Wish You Were Dead.”
What would you do if God sent you share His Word with someone who might kill you, someone who would threaten your country, your people and your life? God tells Jonah to go to the Assyrians, who even historians were abundantly evil. But Jonah runs in the opposite direction. We follow the prodigal prophet on the path to repentance in our new sermon series, “I wish you were dead.”
There is a love stronger than death. It’s where Jesus lives, dies and rises from the dead for our salvation. God shows us His love throughout the Song of Songs, and He reminds us again this week as we conclude are sermon series that we are “Altogether Beautiful”.
Who gets the glory in your relationships? God gets the glory when the church does what its supposed to do, and loves one another with the love He first loved us. We continue our sermon series on the Song of Songs, “Altogether Beautiful” in chapters 6 and 7.
Our differences can create conflict on our own, causing all sorts of problems in our relationships. But God uses our differences to build us up and to draw us to Him and to each other. We continue our sermon series on the Song of Songs, “Altogether Beautiful” in chapter 5.
Sometimes, it’s hard for us to believe what God says about us. But in Song of Songs, he tells us over and again that we are altogether beautiful, and there is no flaw in us. May you hear those words from Him in your life as we continue our sermon series on the Song of Songs, “Altogether Beautiful” in chapter 4.
