During the school year, we have partnered with a local Elementary, Middle and High School and other churches, to provide food for students in need – whether it be a backpack of food for the weekend or to stock the shelves in the Student Pantry
We also participate in Feed the Need over the summer months when school meals are not available and families and children suffer from food poverty.

Our Ladies’ Luncheon group meets at The Brentwood Grille on the 1st Thursday of the month. We share good food and fun and strengthen the bonds of our community. We also do occasional project such as volunteering at the Santa Shop.
Men’s Social Group
The Men’s Social Group offers a chance for the men of Holy Cross to gather for fellowship and service. Non-members are also welcome to join us. We gather at once a month at a local restaurant to share light-hearted banter or serious discussion over breakfast. We will occasionally perform needed work or volunteer in church or the community, using the skills with which God has individually blessed us.
Meet us at Moe’s on Ten @ 9am, the 1st Saturday of each month.
Food brings people together and Church happens where Christians are. Bring the two together and you get Emmaus – Christian fellowship through food in the community. Join us for a great meal and even better discussion about walking with God and others.
Restaurant Worship – The Rev. RaeLee Baxter
Senior Ministry – The Rev. Bill Roberts and Mike Walbridge
