VESTRY NOTICES

Please contact any member of the vestry as we are available for questions, comment and suggestions that you may have.

VESTRY MEETING—The July Vestry Meeting will be held on Thursday, July 18 at 7:00 PM in the E&A Building.

—The Vestry invites all parishioners to consider which ministry you would either like to join, or create, at Holy Cross. We all have our unique gifts, given by God. He teaches us that these gifts are to be used to His glory, not placed beneath a basket. You are asked to think about what gifts He has given you, and how those can be used in His vineyard. Also, we want to hear what yout think about where Holy Cross is and where we are going. We are in the early stages of planning a congregational survey for later this year. You will hear more about this soon.

—As we enter the summer months, please continue timely pledges and plate contributions to the parish.

—Many people think Holy Cross is the church building. As the sign over the sanctuary exit reminds us, WE are the church, not the building. WE ARE HOLY CROSS!

A Prayer for our parish

O God, sustain us, your disciples at Holy Cross, as we face new tasks, in the challenges of a demanding and complicated world. By your Holy Spirit, bless us with sound judgment and the courage to persevere, so that we may boldly bear your Cross. And make us, we pray, faithful servants of your promised kingdom, through Jesus Christ our blessed Savior. Amen.
