Worship

At the heart of life at Holy Cross is worship.

 

Worship is fundamentally about what God is doing and our response to God’s action. Through God’s word, the waters of baptism, a meal of bread and wine, and prayer, we are nurtured in faith, inspired and equipped to be God’s people doing God’s work.

 

Music is an integral part of worship at Holy Cross.  Seasonal liturgies rooted in the Lutheran worship pattern of “Gathering, Word, Meal, and Sending” for young and old alike, as well as hymns and songs from traditions around the world are led by soloists, ensembles, choir, piano, pipe organ, and many other instruments.

We encourage worshippers to follow current CDC guidelines for our area when deciding whether or not to wear a mask.
