What's New
Thanksgiving Boxes for Holy Cross Food Pantry
Our friends at Holy Cross Lutheran Church plan on distributing Thanksgiving bags/boxes at their Food Pantry on the evening of November 19. In 2019 a record number of 125 families received a box. With the effects of the global pandemic, the needs are greater this year so Holy Cross plans to distribute 150 boxes. Each family will get grocery items to prepare a Thanksgiving meal; a five-pound bag of potatoes, cans of vegetables, a box of stuffing mix, a jar of gravy mix, rolls and most importantly, a frozen turkey. Each of the bags/boxes will cost approximately $20. We are asking that you consider helping a neighbor with a donation for a bag or part of a bag. You can write a check for your donation (with Turkey box in the memo line) and put it in the offering plate or mail to the church office. You may also use the Giving + app and donate using the special appeal option. The deadline to contribute is November 10th
Interested in helping distribute the items on the evening of November 19 from 4:45pm to 7:00pm? Please contact Kathy Christiansen at or 402-657-4601.  
500 food items to be matched with $500 from Thrivent for the Holy Cross Food Pantry
We could not pass up the chance to “feed my sheep” at Holy Cross Lutheran by collecting 500 items of non-perishable food items from November 1-November 30 to earn $500 from Thrivent Financial in support of the Holy Cross Pantry. Please bring any non-perishable food item to Lord of Love and place on the table in the Narthex! If you are unable to get items to Lord of Love, but would like to contribute, financial gifts may be donated to Lord of Love (checks payable to Lord of Love), but please indicate clearly on check memo or envelopeFood Pantry.
