How Do I Meet People?

Our church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at this church. Please see Events page for meeting times of each group.

Bible Study

We are blessed to have two different bible study options here at Holy Cross.  The first is your traditional Bible Study led by Becky Bradley that takes place once a week in our Fellowship Hall.  Our second is a Women’s Book/Bible study that meets once a month and discusses the chapters of a particular reading for that month, whether it be a Christian themed book or a reading from the bible.

Hooks, Needles & Quilting

The Holy Cross Quilters, Hook & Needles groups make and donate quilts, afghans and other items to people in need in our community and around the world. All items are hand made and distributed to groups, such as the Children’s Cabinet, VA Sierra Nevada Healthcare System, Hosanna HomeNeo Natal Quilt Project, Family Promise, and Lutheran World Relief. The Hooks & Needles group also makes baby afghans for infants baptized at Holy Cross. Quilting and sewing experience is not required, but experienced quilters and seamstresses are always needed. If you are a beginning knitter or crocheter  they are happy to teach and help you!  

 Senior Lunch & Mens/Womens Breakfast

Once a month our seniors get together for a nice lunch here at Holy Cross in our Fellowship Hall.  It is a time for friendship and just enjoying each other’s company.  In addition, once a month there is a breakfast at Lili’s restaurant for the Men and Women of our congregation.  It is also a time for friendship outside of Holy Cross.

Garden of Eatin’ – Holy Cross Community Garden

The Holy Cross Community Garden was developed to celebrate God’s creation and bounty through the planting of vegetables, herbs and flowers that can be shared and enjoyed by HCLC members and friends, Silver Sage residents, homeless shelters and local food banks. There are 24 raised garden boxes available for members and community neighbors to plant, harvest, and share produce.  The garden is completely natural utilizing organic seeds and plants that have not been exposed to harmful chemical fertilizers and pesticides, and that will not negatively impact the local environment, watershed and wildlife. Our garden is flourishing!! 

Congregation

Holy Cross is comprised of members and friends with a wide range of age and life experiences.  We are a welcoming family that embraces each other and our understanding that we are brothers and sisters in Christ.  Our love for each other, the community and world resonates in the worship, ministry and outreach of this congregation.

Journaling

Will your children, grand children and great grandchildren know who you were and why the way you were?  Join the journaling group at HCLC and share your story. We are a small group and know that if we did not meet on a regular basis we would not take the time to write these memoirs.  All are welcome to join us.  You do not need to be an HCLC member.
