CHARIS MINISTRIES

Holy Cross is a partner with Charis Ministries.  Each month Charis Ministries  has a Food of the Month to collect food  items to use for the weekly Food to You distributions.

This month we are collecting macaroni and cheese. Please consider donating and supporting this important community ministry.  You can put your donations in the Food of the Month basket on the counter by the cafe area. 

Charis Ministry Partners was organized in 2009 because a group of Lutherans saw needs in our community and wanted to do something to make a difference. Holy Cross is one of 13 partner churches that comprise Charis.  

Charis has 3 different programs:
