HOLY CROSS LCMS SUNDAY SCHOOL & LYF HAS A FACEBOOK PAGE! If you want to be a part of it to receive notifications and share photos of events, please contact Susan Serre — it is a ‘secret group’ for privacy so you will have to be added. This is an easy way to get information and reminders!


3/11/2018 – Holy Cross will be hosting the Bible Bowl, which is like Jeopardy for the book of Matthew at 2 pm.  The Bible Bowl provides an opportunity for our youth to be involved in Scripture study and thus to grow in their knowledge of the Word and to grow in their faith.  The Bible Bowl uses a quiz format.  Two teams, of three or four contestants each, compete in 15-question games.  Lights or buzzers are used to determine who answers first (the quickest to the switch gets the first try). If you want to join the team or come watch, we would love to see you!

3/31/2018 – JOURNEY TO THE CROSS and an Easter Egg Hunt at 1 pm at Holy Cross. This is open to all ages, so please invite family and friends to join in to learn more about Jesus’ final days leading up to His crucifixion and His glorious Resurrection. If you are 7th grade or up we would love to have you volunteer to help teach and lead the younger children. Afterwards we will all get to pick up Easter Eggs.

The week of 6/4/2018 IS SCHEDULED FOR VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL: SPLASH CANYON. This is a week long event from 9 am to 11:30 am daily, for ages 4 to 6th grade. Any youth who want to come and help out are also very welcome. There will be lessons, snacks, arts & crafts and fellowship. More information and sign up sheets will be posted closer to June, but please mark your calendars!
