Happy 4th of July – hope you had a wonderful time of celebration for our freedom and independence. May God protect this great nation.

“I consider it as an indispensable duty to close this last act of my official life by commending the interest of our dearest country to the protection of Almighty God, and those who have the superintendence of them to his holy keeping” exerpt of George Washington’s Farewell 1783

“…..We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,…..” portion of the Declaration of Independence

HCWomen Thursday Night Chat

Holy Cross Women will resume Thursday Night Chats on Zoom this Thursday with short video devotions by, one of our favorites, Liz Curtis Higgs. If you want to follow along with Liz in the devotions, you can purchase the book, Rise and Shine, for our study, see link to purchase --details below. It is completely optional – you can do this without the book, but there are so many awesome spiritual nuggets in it, you may want to get it!

And as always, there’s discussion and laughs and fellowship.

Link to book on Amazon.com (There is another book with the same title, so make sure you get this one that has a yellow and black cover!)

Let's Do Life Together

Pray for each other:

Don't forget as you go about your daily routine to pray for each other. We all need it!

Scripture Memory

Scripture designs to help you memorize one verse every month. Temporary Tattoos, key fobs, and memory cards, etc...


1. Start with a verse.
2. Each letter in the design represents the first letter of each word in the verse.
3. See it. Recall it. Repeat it.

Check it out at Dwell Differently

Thanks, Chrissy Scheiderich, for bringing this to us!

Coming Up

Worship at Holy Cross - Sundays at 10:00 a.m.

Three Ways to Worship

(1) In Person – No Registration Required

If you are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or if you have had COVID-19, you are welcome to attend in person worship masked or unmasked. However, if you are not yet vaccinated or if you have never had COVID-19, it is our expectation that you will continue masking until COVID-19 spread in Fort Bend County reaches Level Blue (Low). Also, we ask all worshippers to maintain six feet of physical distance between themselves and others who are not part of their household. Note: All seating in the worship space is distanced.
