This Weekend at Holy Cross…

Dear Family:

I would like to invite you to join us for the following events at Holy Cross this weekend:

Friday, November 2“Trivia Night” at 7:00pm.  Join us for a fun evening of team trivia.  The cost is $10/person and the money raised will go towards sending our high school youth to the National Youth Gathering next summer in Minnesota.  Child care will be available.  To register, contact Rebekah at 919-553-4784 or

Sunday, November 4“Backpack Buddies Sunday.”  It is time for us to restock our food pantry for our Backpack Buddies program at East Clayton Elementary School.  Every family is asked to bring one of the following items with them to worship on Sunday:

  • Shelf Stable Milk Boxes
  • Canned Vegetables
  • Individual Breakfast Items
  • 100% Juice Boxes
  • Canned Fruits
  • Individual Pasta (ie – mac & cheese; Ramen noodles)
  • Canned Meats & Stews
  • Healthy Snacks

Please place your food items on the table in the narthex area before you go into the sanctuary for worship.

This Sunday, November 4, is also All Saints Sunday.  Every year churches around the world set aside the first Sunday of November to remember those who have died in the faith, but who live in God’s heavenly kingdom today.  While the names of all of our members who have died since our church was started in 2001 will be listed in the bulletin, we will only read the names of those who have died over the past year in our worship service.  Please join us for this special worship service.

In God’s Service,
Pastor Bill
(Don’t forget to turn your clocks back one hour this weekend.)
