You can enroll in CONNECT. It’s free.

Enroll in CONNECT
Holy Cross seeks to be a community transformed by the love of Jesus. Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Sunday CONNECT & Midweek CONNECT is the name of our discipleship ministries at Holy Cross, specifically applied to our Sunday and Wednesday nurture programs. Holy Cross wants to continually encourage all of our friends and members to “go deeper” in their faith as they grow in their understanding the depths of Jesus’ love for them.

“I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3

CONNECT is offered twice each week.
Here are the details…

Wednesdays 6:00 p.m.

Midweek CONNECT is a mid-week Christian Education evening for the whole family, infants through adults. It is integrally connected with and mirrors our Sunday CONNECT program, but on Wednesday we can include a meal and fellowship together to enhance our connections with each other. The rest of the time together is spent in one of the many electives that are offered for children & adults. It is offered every Wednesday (except during Advent and Lent) when we gather for worship instead of classes. It all begins at 6:00 p.m. followed by fun and fellowship for school-aged children, confirmation classes for our junior high youth, and a series of study electives for adults young and old.

Sundays 9:45-10:30 a.m.

Faith in Jesus is an on-going relationship with God that, like all relationships, needs constant nurture and development. God has provided His Word, the Bible, to help continually strengthen faith. Holy Cross offers many ways to study His Word every Sunday morning from 9:45 to 10:30 a.m. which we call FaTHoM Sunday.

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
1 Timothy 3:16-17
