Worship and Formation
Sunday, February 14th is Valentine's Day and Holy Cross celebrates L-O-V-E!
During morning worship, Jerry has written a creative poem about God's Love that will be read by: Mirna, Daniel, Sara and Jerry. Our music, prayers and scriptures will be for the first Sunday in Lent. In the late afternoon, we will host "wedding vow renewal" for our membership and the greater community. Married couples who wish to participate can come any time between 3 pm - 5 pm. The Reverend Laura will lead each couple individually in renewing their wedding vows according to a simple form, followed by a blessing. Refreshments will be served in the Tietge Room. Thank you to everyone who has offered to help. So far, six married couples of Holy Cross will participate, and we hope to welcome our neighbors and friends, as well. Valentine's Day will indeed be special for ALL. Contact Rev. Laura 760-717-2182 or
