HCWomen Thursday Night Chats

Starting Sept 2nd, Holy Cross Women will resume Thursday Night Chats!

We are happy to let you know that our study will be “Joshua: Winning the Worry Battle”! New Author Barb Roose says “….as long as we are breathing, worry will be a part of life because we are human………Great news--- we are not powerless against worry……. it is actually possible to fight the worry battle and win, not on our own, but with God giving us victory”. We will be learning from the Israelites how God will/can empower you to win over worry!

Wow that’s exciting, isn’t it? Boy who hasn’t been worried in this passed year or so? BUT it IS possible to win this battle! You in? You’ll want to purchase your workbook as soon as you can. The first lesson should be completed before the first video (Sept 2nd). Pages 1-38 (this includes introduction and background to Joshua as well as the lesson itself)

What’s great about this study is that each daily lesson should take about 20-30 minutes and is easy reading and mostly fill in the blanks and applications and prayers – and at the same time we are digging into God’s Word. Barb’s videos are straight forward and engaging, and down to earth!

More exciting news about Thursday Night Chats:

We will be back in person Thursday Night Chats !!! (Also, we are working out details to possibly continue to live stream/zoom at the same time)

Pumpkin Patch 2021!

Holy Cross Pumpkin Patch is back on 2021! Pumpkins are coming Oct 10th and the last 3 weekends we will be open with all activities as usual. The Pumpkin Patch is our major fundraiser, so we all benefit from the sales. Not only that, but our outside outreach ministries benefit as well. Since we didn’t have a Pumpkin Patch, we anticipate that we will be really busy, and we will need all hands-on deck. Please consider volunteering for the Women’s Bake Sale Table (and other areas too!). As we approach fall, be thinking of what kind of baked good you would like to bake/purchase to offer to the cause! More details to follow as we get closer!
