Sunday Bible Class
During the school year, Holy Cross offers an adult Bible class before each worship service. The class begins at 1:15 p.m.. We study God’s word by taking a look at a book of the Bible or a certain teaching of the Bible. Those in high school and older are encouraged to attend this class. Currently we are studying the book of Genesis.
During the school year, Holy Cross offers a Sunday school for children ages 3-14 starting at 10:45 a.m. The children learn one Bible story and memory verse each week. Students have an opportunity to hear a devotional message from pastor at the beginning of each class. The children also learn hymns and songs in order to sing them during the worship services. We currently have six teachers and a few helpers in order to teach children God’s word.
Summer Family Bible Study
Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, Holy Cross offers a family Bible Study after its worship service around 10:15. There is a fellowship time with refreshments followed by a short Bible study designed to edify people of all ages. In June and July of this year we will be taking a look at various Bible translations.
Midweek Bible Classes
During the school year, we hold a midweek Bible Class. Currently, this class meets at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday afternoons. This class studies God’s word by taking a look at a book of the Bible, a teaching of the Bible, or another topic. Typically we will tackle a harder to understand topic or cover a book more in-depth in our midweek class than our Sunday class. We are currently studying the Gospel of Mark.

Members of Holy Cross in 7th and 8th grade learn the basics of God’s word through the study of Martin Luther’s Small Catechism. This class teaches God’s word through studying the 10 Commandments, the Apostles Creed, The Ministry of the Keys, the sacrament of Holy Baptism, the sacrament of Holy Communion, and the Lord’s Prayer.
