Sunday Morning Adult Formation

Jan. 20 & Jan. 27 "Teach Us to Pray:" Jump-Starting Prayer at Home and at Church
A two-part series lead by Kevin Laskowski

One of the biggest stumbling blocks to prayer is getting hung up on how you pray. What do you say? Do you say anything? When? Are the Bible and Book of Common Prayerrequired? What does "good" prayer look, sound, feel like?

Whether your prayer life is amazing, or you feel stuck in a rut, we'll go looking for answers—in the Bible, in the Book of Common Prayer, in movies, and in our own lives. January 20 will cover private prayer, our spiritual lives at home and work. January 27 will cover praying in public, our common life at church and in the world. We might just find that the fact that we pray is often more important than how.

Feb. 10 The Rev. Dr. Bill Roberts, Professor of Church Music at Virginia Theological Seminary, will lead the Forum. We will sing and discuss examples of the wide diversity of music in the Anglican Communion. Come and bring your voices and your hearts as we open ourselves to the blessings of spiritual music that is familiar, as well as to that which is new. Not a singer? No worries, come and enjoy what promises to be a fun and informative Formation Hour.
Feb. 17 Serving Immigrants and Refugees
We will welcome Genesis Lazo of Just Neighbors to talk to us about immigration in our local community and how we can assist people navigating the legal immigration and refugee system. Genesis will have recently returned from a trip to visit a detention center, and give us some first-hand information on how we might help out local population. Just Neighbors is a nonprofit organization providing immigration legal services to low-income immigrants and refugees in Virginia. Through immigration legal services we are able to help immigrants and refugees reunite with their family members, access immigration benefits that lead to a work permit or green card and help victims of domestic violence become independent.

Come to our presentation to learn how you can get involved in helping your neighbors!

 

Bible and Book Study

There is a regular Bible and Book study meeting on Wednesday mornings beginning at 10:15. The first 45 minutes are devoted to the scripture appointed for the following Sunday. The second half of the meeting is focused on other literature chosen by the participants. New members are welcome any time. Please join us.

 

Education Classes for Children and Youth

9:15 a.m. Pre-K – 12th grade

Holy Cross provides religious education to all children and youth on Sunday mornings. Sunday School is held from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. most Sundays September through May. Parents are asked to register their children in September at the beginning of the school year, but children are welcome in Sunday School at any time.

Throughout the year, children are invited to attend Children's Chapel during the 10:30 a.m. service. Children's Chapel is an age-appropriate exploration of the Gospel. Children rejoin their parents for communion.

To register your child for Sunday School, please use the link at the top of the page.
