thank you for what you do for us all!
My wonderful church family that I am missing today because of the weather.
Thanks to Pastor Tom and the staff at Holy Cross for keeping Jesus in front during this crisis. Keep up the good work.
Dear Loved Ones,

This is an informal notification to everyone about the condition of our beloved Ruth Segovia Lockett, daughter of the late Rev. Felix Segovia and Elizabeth Escobedo.

Throughout the 1980's and into the 90's, most of my family and I attended both church and school at Holy Cross and were very active participants of the various groups and organizations within the congregation.

For those of you that knew or might remember my grandmother, Ruth Segovia Lockett, she has recently been in the hospital dealing with health issues. After being provided with all medical support available, the decision has been made to move Ruth back home with her daughter, Mayo Pascoe in Arlington, in order to transition into hospice care beginning today.

As of this moment, any and all visitations are being asked to be put on hold until further notice, although all our family and friends will be kept updated on Ruth's condition.

Please feel free to share this post with anyone that you feel may need to know about our dear Ruth. And if there are any questions, feel free to contact me via Facebook Messenger.

Thank you for your time and attention. Sending love and blessings to all.

Sincerely,

Jaime de la Parra
Please announce and Post where relevant

Renovation Update: the concrete was poured on Monday!! Our new "Texas Two-Step" chancel is taking shape giving us more useable square footage around the altar. The new communion rail with kneeler will be installed at floor level. Painters will be in next week (5/3) to finish painting, followed by the installation of the floor (5/10) and the new pews during the week of 5/17. That's at least the plan as we know it today. Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow! Thank you for your support and patience!!

This Sunday, Visit 'PreachersNSneakers' For Fashion, Flexing And For-Profit Faith

In my message today, I (Pastor Tom) poked fun at "Preacher's Sneakers," an Instagram account that calls out celebrity pastors for their expensive clothes. Here is an article from yesterday with more information about this viral site. #LordHaveMercy https://www.npr.org/2021/04/24/989331514/this-sunday-visit-preachersnsneakers-for-fashion-flexing-and-for-profit-faith

This Sunday, Visit 'PreachersNSneakers' For Fashion, Flexing And For-Profit Faith In 2019 the PreachersNSneakers Instagram account started calling attention to famous preachers and their designer clothes. Ben Kirby, the no-longer anonymous person behind the account, has a new book.

Sunday Worship: April 25, 2021

Title: No Other Name
Texts: Acts 4:1-12
The early church had none of the “advantages” that some ministries boast of and depend on today. They did not have big budgets provided by wealthy donors. Their pastors lacked credentials from the accepted schools, nor did they and their church have the endorsement of politicians or of social media. Most of their ministers had jail records and would probably have a hard time today joining our churches let alone lead them. What really was the secret to their success? Chapter 4 answers this question: the Christians of the early church relied on prayer and God’s providential hand at work on their behalf. Today, we’ll learn and apply a lesson in relying on the name of Jesus for our life of prayer—the truest of all advantages! Welcome to all who worship with us today.

Title: Identifying the Source
Text: Acts 3:11-21
Preacher: Pastor Tom
Identify the source. That phrase or idea is a part of our education—identifying the source for why we say what we say or write what we write. From English or History papers you wrote in high school to the regular stream of news we receive on-line, the idea of a source lends legitimacy. In today’s text from Acts 3, Peter and John are credited as miracle workers, the source of healing for a “lame beggar” near the entrance to the Temple. Yet, they disagree! They point to a source beyond themselves as the One who should get all the credit. What does it mean for you and me to point beyond ourselves to a “source” for our life and faith? Let’s discover how acknowledging Jesus as the Source and Savior makes all the difference in our life, for today and eternity! Welcome to all who worship with us!

This means we have overcome the biggest (and hopefully last) major mountain to finishing the sanctuary renovations. We'll keep you posted, but offer up a prayer of thanksgiving to the Lord as we finally see the finish line!🏁

Title: Great Expectations
The resurrection of Jesus was not only a type of proclamation, a type of victory celebration, but also a catalyst for the church and its explosive growth. This may seem obvious, but perhaps what isn’t as obvious, are some of the immediate results, the effects on the lives of the men and women who followed Christ. How did the lives of these men and women change in the immediacy and what does this mean for us today? What changes did they experience? What can we expect? Let’s find out! Welcome to all who worship with us!

Easter Sunday 2021

*Please note we had technical issues with our cameras just before worship began. You should be able to hear everything and follow along with slides. Thank you for your patience!
Title: You Are What You Wear
Text: Luke 24 and Various
On this day the Lord has acted! On the first day of the week God began creation, transforming darkness into light. On this, the “eighth day” of the week, Jesus Christ was raised from the dead. We celebrate this new creation in the waters of baptism and in the feast of victory of the Lamb over sin, death, and Satan. With great joy we celebrate this day of days - a day unlike any other. Filled with hope, we go forth to share the news that Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Welcome to all who worship with us today!

[04/04/21]   A Prayer for Resurrection Sunday

Text: Luke 24:36-53, with emphasis on v.46, 46 “He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day….”

The Messiah. The Savior. My Lord and My God. Smitten, afflicted, but RISEN! May all the “Amen’s! and Hallelujah’s!” of the world rise up to you today and may you receive the praise due your holy name. I count myself among the saints across the ages who say “Today, TODAY is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!” Thank you, Jesus. Thank you.

Unbelievable grace. Unfathomable power. Unlimited mercy. The Ultimate Savior. All for me. All for the world. Amazing. Utterly amazing. In your name I pray, Amen!

A big THANK YOU to all the Holy Cross volunteers who absolutely CRUSHED IT these past few days--from getting the gym ready for Easter worship, to distributing 300 boxes of food to our neighbors, to setting up for an Easter breakfast and everything in between--thank you for your service to the Lord and His Church! #SanctifiedPride 😁

Do you long to travel? To Paris or Rome? Or how about small-town Texas, like Hico or Fredericksburg? At this point, any destination will do! But don't let the pandemic get you down--come take a tour with us this Sunday. That's right! Immediately after Easter breakfast there will be an opportunity to "tour" the progress of the renovations, familiarizing yourself with the new-look for our sanctuary, choir loft, family room, and narthex. It may not be the trip of a lifetime, but I promise the views will be great as you are granted VIP access! 😉 #EasterSunday

[04/03/21]   A "Holy Week" of Prayer ~ Holy Saturday

Text: Luke 16:1-13, with emphasis on v.13a, 13 “No one can serve two masters….”

Father, I imagine that if I was one of Jesus’ first followers, I might have prayed something like this:

“Dear God, it is Saturday and Jesus’ body lies in the tomb. I find myself serving the master of doubt rather than faith. Disbelief and sorrow control me. Darkness envelopes me. Will my Jesus be gone forever? Please Lord, you are the God of the miraculous! I refuse to believe that the story ends at my rabbi’s death! Help me to trust that tomorrow will bring a new day for my master and me! O Adonai! O Elohim! Deliver us!

Father, was I close? Do I have a crumb of understanding as to what the disciples, the men and women following Jesus, must have felt? How painful the last few days must have been for them, but how much easier for us knowing what tomorrow brings.

Tomorrow is a new day! Prayers Answered! Hope fulfilled! Help me to hang on! Amen!

Good Friday Worship 2021

Good Friday continues the three-day observance (Triduum) of Christ’s Passover, marking the day of his crucifixion. As such, it is a day for repentance of sin, focus on the cross, and restrained joy for our redemption. In keeping with this auspicious day, elaborate words of praise are omitted and the altar remains bare. The central focus of the service is the reading of the remaining verses of the Passion Account from St. Matthew. The service is one of “Tenebrae” (darkness). The service will conclude with an ancient liturgy of Scripture and responses known as the “Reproaches.” These are words of the Lord against His people, to which the congregation replies with pleas for mercy and declarations of faith. Given the solemnity of the day, prayerful meditation is encouraged. The service is also marked by a note of triumph, since God’s faithful know of the resurrection to come.

[04/02/21]   A "Holy Week" of Prayer ~ Good Friday

Text: 1 Corinthians 3:18-23, with emphasis on v.19, 19 “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight.”

Heavenly Father, I thank you for the gift of education and the multiple opportunities in life to learn and expand my knowledge. Give me wisdom to use my intelligence and creativity for good and holy things. Forgive me when I misuse worldly wisdom and profit selfishly or sinfully because of it. Help me to keep the wisdom of this world in perspective, seeing it as tool, but not making an idol or god of it.

At the same time, give me your foolishness. Give me the cross of Jesus, the forgiveness of sins and the reality of eternal life. I have no idea why you do things the way you do, but it is not my prerogative. Forgive me for questioning your means. Help me to be a fool for Christ rather than wiseacre of the world.

In your truth and wisdom of Jesus I pray! Amen!

Maundy Thursday Worship 2021

The name Maundy Thursday comes from the Latin word “mandatum,” which means “commandment.” It is taken from Jesus' words to his disciples in John 13:34: "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another." Tonight, we recall one of those ways Jesus loved his disciples— sacrificial service in the washing of their feet. It’s a different approach to what is historically an evening of remembrance of the last supper, but it’s an important approach. It lays the foundation for his gift in Holy Communion, his Table of Grace and Belonging. Welcome to all who worship this evening.

[04/01/21]   A "Holy Week" of Prayer ~ Maundy Thursday

Text: Romans 13:1-7, with emphasis on v.1, “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”

Father, this is a, um, different text for Holy Week. But I get it. Jesus places himself under the authority of Pilate on this Holy Thursday…all according to your will. Lord, I realize this is not primarily a civics lesson, so help me to see beyond the need for me to pray for those in authority and subject myself to their leadership. (But I pray I will!) Help me instead to see the King of Kings and Lord of Lords willingly subject himself to earthly rule so that our redemption takes place. Help me to see him who rightly rules the cosmos and be brought to a place of faith and trust that all things, whether human government or heavenly plans, unfold according to your will.

In the name of Jesus’ humble authority I pray, Amen!

[03/31/21]   A "Holy Week" of Prayer ~ Wednesday

Text: Matthew 4:12-17, with emphasis on v.17, 17” From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”

Jesus, to hear you preach must have been amazing. What’s even more amazing is the content of your messages. You are the preacher’s preacher! Yet, in your grace and humility you did not come to elevate yourself to that of celebrity preacher or megachurch pastor, but to let the Word speak for itself and call your creation to repentance and faith in you. May this message be the main message of all preacher’s as they point people to you and your saving grace.

As your kingdom comes among us here on earth as it is in heaven, help me to see it manifested most in you as the Son of God and Son of Man who gave his life as a ransom for many. For you so loved the world, you came not to condemn it, but save it! Amen!

[03/30/21]   A "Holy Week" of Prayer ~ Tuesday

Text: Isaiah 25:6-12, with emphasis on v.8a “he will swallow up death forever.”

Father, hard to think about death dying. Death being dead. Death being swallowed up by itself. But wait, that’s not what you mean, is it? Death does not have the final answer even over itself. Death is swallowed up by … LIFE! Yes! I knew it! The victory is life over death, beauty over the grotesque, peace over conflict, unconditional love over sin. You are LIFE itself and it is in you we live and breathe and have our eternal being. Death ceases to exist! Yeah!

As we approach Easter Sunday and prepare to celebrate the resurrection, I pray for the Holy Spirit’s help in appreciating and cherishing this life I have in Christ, both the temporal and eternal. Remove any fear of death from me and give me the full confidence of Christ as his disciple that I possess eternity because of what Jesus has done for me.

In Jesus’ Life Giving Name, Amen!
