Child Care

We have a professionally-staffed nursery on Sunday mornings from 9 a.m. to noon. Age-appropriate toys and activities are available, and the nursery is equipped with a silent pager system so that parents can feel comfortable knowing that they will be contacted if the need should arise.

Children’s Choir

The children's choir sings about once a month in church and for special events such as the Blessing of the Animals. All children are welcome, but it is especially geared to kids from Kindergarten to 5th grade.

Please contact to find out more.

Sunday School

Holy Cross provides religious education to all children Pre-K to high schoolers on Sunday mornings. Sunday School is held from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m.

Sunday School is held most Sundays from 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. Please see the classes page for more information about the Sunday School program.

Children's Chapel

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.

Youth Group

Youth group is open to all 6th to 12th graders, and meets about twice a month on Sunday afternoons or evenings. The youth group plans its activities with the supervision of adult volunteers, which includes fund raising activities, field trips, and movie nights.

The youth group has traditionally hosted the Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper, and shopped for Christmas gifts for families in need.

Youth are invited to attend any and all meetings and activities, and adults are invited to act as chaperones for Sunday meetings and other outings that are scheduled throughout the year.
