Express Your Faith
We Love Because He first loved us.
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. Some of the ways we do that is by serving at and supporting non-profits like the Oxford Pregnancy Center, Love INC, Blessings in a Backpack and others. We join in community events by painting faces during the Oxford Scarecrow Festival, passing out tasty treats during the Soup and Sweet Stroll, and helping clean up a neighbor's yard during Oxford Gives Back. We serve at and support our sister mission church St. Paul Pontiac and we're helping to train up the next generation of pastors by sponsoring two students with Concordia Seminary's Adopt-A-Student program.
Serve On Sundays For Worship
We also express our faith in love by serving during worship on Sundays. Musicians, greeters, ushers, sound and computer operators enable every service. It is a great opportunity to serve and to help make Holy Cross a welcoming place! Sign up for a day and time that works for you, and if it's your first time serving we'll make sure you get the training you need to feel comfortable.
