Dear Family:

Holy Cross has always been a very generous congregation, especially when it comes to meeting the needs of our members and people in our community.  During these unusual times, your offerings will enable our ministries to continue to provide spiritual care to everyone we meet.  However, since we have not been able to meet for worship at the church we have not been able to collect offerings over the past few weeks and I do not know when we will be able to collect them again in worship.

Therefore, there are three ways you can continue to give your offerings to the church:

1) You can mail your offerings to the church.  Several of you have done that over the past two weeks and it has helped us in many ways.

2) You can bring your offerings to the church.  Some of you have done that as we still have people at the church every day who can receive your offerings.

3) You may give your offerings electronically.  Several of you have been doing this for many years.  There are two ways you can give electronically:

  1.     A) To give online with your credit card, please go to the following link:

  1.     B) To have your offerings drafted from your checking or savings account on a recurring basis, please fill out the attached form (Click here: Joyful Response ) and bring it or mail it to the churchBJ Johns, our financial secretary, will then process this form for you.  There is no cost to you or the church when you use “Joyful Response” and you may change the amount or the frequency your offerings are given (weekly, monthly, etc.) at any time.

The Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 16: “On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with one’s income…and give it as an offering to the Lord.”  While we are not able to meet in person for worship, our offerings are still needed to continue our ministries.  In fact, if we have any members with any urgent needs we want to make sure we can continue to meet those needs.  Please pray about what God may asking you to give for your offerings at this time.  If you have any questions please contact Cassy at the church office through email: or by phone: 919-553-4784 at any time.

God’s Blessings,
Pastor Bill
