  • Looking ahead
    Lutherfest is Sunday February 25th, supporting
    Luther House Campus Ministries at Oregon State
    University! This is a Beer and Cheese Pairing to
    benefit Luther House!
    Last year the Jensen’s sponsored tables and folks
    bought their tickets from them. Please consider if
    God is calling you to sponsor a table or two and
    invite as many as possible to attend this event.
    Advance tickets are the only way in - $50 each or
    $350 for a table of 8.
    Thanks! Pastor P+

     
  • Washington Elementary need our help!
    It is cold and flu season and Washington
    Elementary needs help with cleaning supplies!
    They need:
    Hand Sanitizer
    Clorox wipes
    Wet Wipes
    Kleenex boxes
    If you are able to bring in some supplies we will
    take them over in February. Thank you for your
    help!

     
  • Sharing the Light!
    At Holy Cross in 2018 we will Share the Light this
    Epiphany in several ways . In our narthex is a Shar-
    ing Tree – covered with ornaments you can choose
    to make a donation to ELCA Good Gifts – a Gift
    that can change someone’s world. Just choose an
    ornament, write out a check to ELCA Good Gifts,
    place it in an envelope and put it in the offering
    plate, or give to the church office at Holy Cross.
    Also during Epiphany, we will have a Ministry
    Moment (3 minutes or less) in every worship,
    where a member of Holy Cross will talk about how
    they have been impacted by Sharing the Light. You
    won’t want to miss it. Bless you all –
    Pastor Patricia +

  • Youth Update!
    We had a GREAT time at
    Camp Lutherwood Oregon last
    weekend! We did a lot of team
    bonding, fun games, and
    planning for the ELCA Youth
    Gathering
    .
    One of the things we did as a
    group was to “rebrand” our-
    selves. We stopped being two
    churches (Christ the Good
    Shepherd and Holy Cross) and
    became one youth group.
    Our new name is Faithful
    Lutheran Youth
    (AKA Fly ).
    We are excited for this change
    and look forward to what the
    future holds for our group!
