One is the bulletin as printed last Monday. The second is the insert we are using to change the service to Service of the Word instead of communion. The service will start with the regular bulletin and then move to the insert after the offering.  

Tune into Facebook at 8:30 or 11:00 am to watch our service live. The video will also be available to watch at a later time through our Facebook page. The page is titled “Holy Cross Lutheran Church Herndon VA“. You can view all our resources including the live streaming even if you do not have a Facebook account.

If you stay home, we ask that you consider making your offering donation online. Please go to our website, click the “Donate” button and fill out the form as appropriate. You can also simply mail a paper check to the church. It is important to remember that in times like these the work of the church is important and we want to make sure our financial standing is firm to carry out our ministry for the community.
