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
Register now for 2018/2019
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.

God tells us through Solomon and throughout the Bible, “Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins.” The standard is perfection. It has been, it is, and it always will be. These are words to us and they are also words to Jesus for us. Jesus gives us the perfection we could never earn for ourselves. Our message on Ecclesiastes 7:15-29.
When we look around our world, and everything which happens in it, we might find ourselves asking the question “Where is God?” He’s not hiding. God is exactly where He says He would be: in His Temple, His Word and His Sacraments. He is the Good King, who holds us together, delivers us, and gives us His peace. Our message on Ecclesiastes 4:13-5:9.
How do we handle evil? We see it in the world. We see it in other people. Do we see it in ourselves? When we struggle against life and death, how do we handle the brokenness around us? Our message on Ecclesiastes 3:16-4:12, and how to live in love received from God and shared with all.
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter. If you’ve ever done something at just the right time, or just the wrong time, you know timing is everything. We wrestle with God being in control of everything in our lives and with His timing. We rejoice that He reserved one time for himself. Our message on Ecclesiastes 3:1-15.
We can overcomplicate things in our lives. We take things which should be relatively simple and add a bunch of complexity. Solomon encourages us to keep it simple, and focus on that which matters most. Our message on Ecclesiastes 2:24-26.
How are we using what we’re given to make an impact on someone’s eternity? God’s generosity with us begins with Jesus, he takes our sin and gives us his life. Then, His love overflows into every aspect of our lives. Our message on Ecclesiastes 2:18-23.
In the end, the wiseman and the fool end up in the same place, so what good is there in being wise? Our message on our Quest for Wisdom and the path God has given us. Sometimes, life is going to be unbearably hard, and it may even our fault. In Jesus, we can say to ourselves and those in despair: Life has hope & joy.
Do you remember the emergency alerts that would take over the TV when you were younger? It was on every channel. There was nothing you could do to get away from it. They were unwelcome interruptions. But we don’t like when the real warnings interrupt us either. Solomon tests all of the world’s pleasures and gives us a real warning in Ecclesiastes 2. Our message.
“What’s in it for me?” is a question we ask pretty often. As children and adults, we want to know what we get for all the hard work we do. But as we repeat the cycle of mistakes of the past, and our legacies fade, what’s left? What work of ours endures for eternity? Christ’s work guarantees our work which comes from Him is never wasted. Our message on Ecclesiastes 1:3-18.
“All is vanity,” Solomon writes in the opening salvo of Ecclesiastes. He gives a clear indictment against everything in this world. If you hold on to anything like it’s god, it will fail you, disappoint you and ultimately destroy you. As we begin our Quest for Wisdom series, we see that true wisdom cannot be found, it must be received.
