Our Mission & Vision

At Holy Cross Episcopal Church in Novi, our vision and mission is to help connect people to faith.

We invite you to experience warm fellowship and God’s love.  Expect to encounter friendly people as we worship and socialize together. We are people who care about where you are going, not where you have been. 

Gather with us for worship on Sunday mornings at 8:00 a.m. or 10:00 a.m., followed by coffee hour. Sit down with old friends and make new ones. A children’s “Soft Space” is provided in the Sanctuary. Sunday School (Pre-K-5th Grade) meet during the 10 a.m. service. Youth Formation (6th – 12th Grade) meets during the 10 am Coffee Hour. Nursery Care is available upon request.  

Join us also on Thursdays for Healing Prayer at 10:00 am and Adult Forum from 10:45 am – 12:00 noon

 Join us for one or all of the evenings, and an opportunity to “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10).

 What to Expect When You’re WORSHIPING (at Holy Cross)

We are a casual, come-as-you-are congregation.  Most Sundays, our worship begins with some readings, a sermon, and prayers and follows up with Holy Communion (a.k.a. the Lord’s Supper).  This ancient ritual order goes back to the early church, and we fill it with progressive language often drawn from Celtic and other styles.

Our music and hymns/songs (at the 10:00 service only) are from a mix of traditions, eras, and different parts of the world.

We take the bread and wine of communion by standing in a circle together.  All are welcome to take communion (or cross your arms for a blessing if you prefer).  We believe that Jesus turns no one away from his table.  However, if you choose not to take communion, that’s fine too–you won’t stand out. Gluten Free host is available.

Our 8 am service is Sensory Friendly – No music, no incense, with a comfort space and Neuro-Diverse volunteers.

Our facility has barrier free, accessible entrances, with a drive-up, drop off front entrance.

Children are welcome in worship at all times and are also invited to join our Sunday School during the 10:00 am service (taught by a couple of our fun, loving, and fun-loving adults!)  We also have a “soft space” with kids’ books and quiet toys in the worship space—and kid noises are not a problem anyway!

A “coffee hour” with light snacks and a chance to socialize follows both services—a great chance to get to know others!
