During Worship Services

  • Worship Space

    The worship space is on the east side of the building (closest to Pilgrim Road).  One of our ushers will give you a GROW newsletter as you enter the Sanctuary.  You can also pick up a activity bag for your child. Children are always welcome and encouraged to attend worship with their parents.

  • Seating

    Our worship space has capacity for hundreds of people, so there is always room for you! If needed, ushers can guide you to a seat.
    Cry Room – we love the sounds of children, but sometimes your infant or toddler needs a break! If that happens, ask an usher to direct you to the cry room where you will still be able to see and hear the service while attending to your little one’s needs.

  • Worship Styles

    Holy Cross has a variety of worship styles from which to choose.

    • Saturday 5:00pm: casual traditional service with keyboard
    • Sunday 7:45am and 9:00am: traditional services featuring beautiful pipe organ music
    • Sunday 10:30am: “contemporary” service featuring a worship band

    (All of the services are approximately 1 hour in length.)

  • Holy Communion

    We celebrate an open table, meaning you do not need to be a Lutheran or a member of our congregation to receive holy communion. We welcome all who are baptized and believe that Jesus is present in the bread and the wine. All children are welcome to come forward for a blessing. Children 2nd grade and older who have received holy communion instruction are invited to celebrate the supper.
