Please check the sign ups for both the picnic and kickball tournament, which are available in the Narthex, for what to bring. With the church providing part of the meal (chicken, rolls, coleslaw and beans), we are anxious to have an accurate count so that we are sure to have enough food on-hand. We hope to see you there!

CM14 MISSION TRIP: Sunday, June 29, we hosted our last mission trip meeting before we head out at the end of July. If you missed that meeting, please contact Jake Bower via email ASAP to receive meeting notes.
MUSIC AND ARTS CAMP: Thank you to the children who participated in this past week’s Music and Arts camp, who sang at ESSE and who helped lead worship July 20!
LOST AND FOUND: It’s easy to forget that you may have brought something to church – and then left it here. Whether you think you may have lost something at Holy Cross, or not, we all are encouraged to look at the bin in coatrack area to see if one of the jackets, hats or other items there is ours. Later this summer, as we do periodically, unclaimed items will be given away.
SUMMER SCHEDULE: We continue through Sunday, August 17, our summer single worship service at 9:30 a.m.
PADS: Although Holy Cross does not participate in a formal way during the summer months with Public Action to Deliver Shelter, all of us know that issues of homelessness don’t take a summer vacation. If you are interested in seeing whether there might be a way for you to volunteer with PADS during the summer, please check their website.
PHOTO DIRECTORY: Holy Cross will be producing a new pictorial directory through Lifetouch later this year. Dates for photography at the church are October 28, 29, 30 and November 1. Online and face-to-face sign-ups will be available approximately six weeks prior to photography dates, but if you know your family will not be together for a photo this fall, please contact Brenda Davis or Renee Evans to learn how you might schedule a sitting over the summer.
