Countdown to Cross+Walk!

Attention families: We invite you to be part of Cross+Walk 2017-2018!

At Cross+Walk, we’ll help kids and their families discover who Jesus is. Through large group and small group settings, we’ll show your family how to live out faith every day at home, school and in your communities.

Who: Everybody is welcome with a special focus on families (grown-ups, too!) with kids ages 3 through grade 5.

When: Begins Rally Sunday, September 10. Register online or pick up a form in the church office or at the welcome center. All children are welcome to participate! We welcome donated school supplies (markers, paper, colored pencils, etc.).

Pray, Give and Connect to Hurricane Harvey Relief

As you know, Hurricane Harvey hit the Gulf Coast and threatens millions of people with multiple days of heavy rain, winds and rising tides. While many have evacuated, significant damage is still expected, and thousands of people may be housed in shelters for an extended period of time.

Lutheran Disaster Response’s affiliate is actively present, collaborating with community leaders and officials to initiate the proper responses, particularly the long-term recovery efforts.

Learn more about the response and donate to Hurricane Harvey relief.
