Campus Ministry Meals Needed
March 21: Meal at 3rd Place. Need volunteers to provide a light meal for 30 and deliver it to 3rd Place in Boone.
The coffee hour sign-up sheet is located in the Parish Hall, ready for parishioners to choose a Sunday to provide food/refreshments for our after Church, 'Coffee Hour'! Providing refreshments and snacks for this social time, is a wonderful and very appreciated ministry, as it provides a time to socialize with our Church Family, while also providing a venue to meet and chat with visitors to our wonderful Church! If you have any questions, please contact Janice Russell or Karla Prudhomme. Thank you in advance for participating in this Hospitality Ministry!

March for Diapers
During the entire month of March, ECW will be collecting diapers for the Children’s Council to distribute to mothers who struggle to make ends meet. Last year Holy Cross collected over 3,000 diapers. This will be our only diaper collection this year, so we are asking everyone to bring diapers to Skiles Hall in an effort to “break the record” and help some local families in need.
Yes, it is time again to bring your donations for the 2017 Rummage Sale slated for July 13, 14 and 15. This year ECW will be accepting clothes again, so feel free to bring your gently used, clean clothes along with household items, furniture, tools, and almost anything else except old computers monitors or televisions. Please note that all donations should be taken downstairs unless other arrangements have been made. Remember one man’s trash is another man’s treasure!
Save Old Telephone Directories
It's time to save your old telephone directories for Valle Crucis Elementary School. Marilyn Welch says she will deliver them to the school if you will leave them in the foyer of Skiles Hall. The school will receive a quarter for each directory! Please help us help our local school.

Let's Keep it Weird

“KEEP CHRISTIANITY WEIRD” A special presentation by Rachel Held Evans
Evans Auditorium, Canon Student Center, Lees-McCrae College, 7:00 pm.
All are invited to gather and hear noted distinguished teacher and author, Rachel Held Evans this evening. Admission is free.
Evans believes that keeping Christianity relevant in a rapidly changing culture isn’t accomplished by fog-machines or “trendy” music and worship leaders, but rather, through rediscovering and reinterpreting the traditional sacraments – baptism, communion, confession and anointing – and doing so in ways that ring true to a skeptical, justice-oriented generation.
