Altar Guild

Greeter & Usher
Welcome worshippers to Holy Cross with a friendly face, help with directions, and collect the offering. Perfect for individuals, couples and families.


Layreader & Chalice Bearer
Lead in worship through the reading of Scripture and the Prayers and serve the chalice during communion. High Schoolers & adults serve once every 4-6 weeks.

Prayer Ministries
Join a prayer team that prays for our church family during communion. Volunteers will be equipped to pray with a partner during worship at Holy Cross.
