What We Do
Our weekly worship service on Sunday is at the heart of our parish life together.
While our service is rooted in ancient Christian liturgy, we believe that liturgy should be as hospitable as it is transcendent. Whether you are new to church or a longtime Christian, you’ll find others just like you engaging in a form of worship that is participatory, joyful, and reverent.
In our service, we sing both classic and contemporary hymns accompanied by musicians who are part of our church. We pray for our local communities, our church, the needs of others and our own, and for the world. We read portions of Scripture and hear a sermon that relates God’s Word to our lives. And each week our service culminates in the Eucharist, a celebratory feast open to all baptized Christians, in which we participate in our communion with God and one another.
As you enter our service, you will receive a printed liturgy that will orient you to all we do in our service. Each week after the service, we invite everyone to join us for refreshments or a meal.
We meet in a lovely event barn at Fidelis Farm, surrounded by vineyards, farmland, and mountains.
We value age-integrated worship, believing children have as much to offer and receive in worship as adults. Thus we aim for our worship to be family-friendly, participatory, and hospitable to our smallest worshippers and the parents who care for them.
For most of the year, we dismiss children 10 and under during the sermon for an optional children's chapel, an age-appropriate lesson and activity. Children rejoin us at the passing of the peace to take communion with their families. An activity sheet for children is available on the welcome table. A toddler area and nursing area is also available to parents during the service.
We welcome the joyful noise and presence of a growing number of children at Holy Cross!
We welcome skeptics and seekers to Holy Cross. We try to cultivate an environment where you can experience Christian faith practiced in an authentic, winsome, and warm way even if you don’t yet believe. From Sunday morning to small groups, we welcome you to attend and to ask questions. If you’re interested in learning more about what it means to be a Christian we encourage you to attend a Foundations Course.
