The Community Outreach Team meets in February, May, August and November, but our activities are ongoing. In our concern for our neighbors, local and global, members of Holy Cross participate in many programs to aid those in need.
We participate in Interfaith Hospitality Network, a county-wide program to house and feed families who are temporarily homeless, and we advocate for affordable, workforce housing through our participation in H.E.L.P. (Homelessness Ended through Local Partners) and Clergy and People for Workforce Housing.
Our Health Ministry members conduct two annual blood drives for the American Red Cross, provide health information in our church newsletter, and conduct classes in CPR, AED, and Defensive Driving.
To support international humanitarian programs of the church-at-large, we conduct annual appeals for funds to support the ELCA’s World Hunger Relief, Church World Services “Blankets +”, and other programs to aid those in need around the world.
