Holy Cross Lutheran Church 1414 E. Wabash Crawfordsville, IN 47933
Coming This Sunday.....May 29, 2016
We now begin the long “green” season of Sundays after Pentecost. This is the teaching season in which the focus of the Lessons turns from the events in Christ’s life to His teaching. The Time of the Church begins with a commendable faith from a surprising source. A Roman centurion heard about Jesus, asked for Jesus to intervene for his servant who was sick, and demonstrated remarkable confidence in the word and promise of the Son of God. We pray that we may have such trust in the word and promise of God and hold to this unchanging Gospel without fear.
Holy Communion will be offered
Welcome to the Holy Cross Lutheran Church web site. We are glad you have stopped by as we gather before the altar of God the Father and beneath the cross of His Son, Jesus Christ. These are big days for our little congregation and we want you to share in our excitement with the spiritual leadership of Pastor Steve and pray that together we will grow in spirit and in numbers.
In God's Word today we hear about faith - no matter how little - that can accomplish great things in God's Kingdom. But we also hear a warning for those who would water down the Gospel and become a stumbling block to the faithful.
How are we called to respond to those who get in the way of the message of Christ Crucified? We call them to repent and then we forgive them. The church is in the forgiveness business. Faith, even a mustard seed sized faith clings to Jesus.
We are called to be faithful but also to remove the stumbling blocks that would cause other to lose faith. We are all unworthy servants and yet have been given a great responsibility with the faith we have. Faith is active and busy and even just a little can be used to bring the assurance of salvation to all who will hear.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us... Hebrews 12:1
