A traditional Lutheran liturgical service with hymns and sung liturgy from the Lutheran Service Book.
A variety of musical instruments accompany a range of musical styles in this more contemporary Lutheran worship service. Sunday School and nursery care are available during the sermon time at this service.
On the second and last Sunday of each month the members and friends of Holy Cross Preaching Station gather at 2:30 pm in the Board Room of Fraser Canyon Hospital for a Service of Holy Communion. They are joined by some of the residents of the extended care unit as our congregation reaches out in love to these special seniors.

Lent is the period of 40 days prior to the celebration of the Resurrection of our Lord on Easter Sunday. This is a time of reflection and repentance as we consider the tremendous sacrifice of our Lord upon the cross. To help us prepare for Easter we will gather for a series of special services during the season of Lent.
Ash Wednesday - February 14. We will gather at 6:00 pm for a potluck supper followed by a service of repentance with the traditional Imposition of Ashes. In the early days of the Church, worshipers would mark their foreheads with ashes as a reminder of their need for repentance and forgiveness from their sins.
Lenten Midweek Program - Each Wednesday from February 21 to March 21 we will meet at 5:30 pm to make Gospel bracelets and finger puppets for Most Ministries eyeglass clinics in third world countries. Then we will share a potluck supper followed by a Lenten Worship Service. Our theme for this series is "On Higher Ground."
Maundy Thursday - March 29. Potluck supper at 6:00 pm followed by a celebration of Holy Communion as we remember our Lord's Last Supper with his disciples shortly before he was betrays and crucified.
Good Friday - March 30. At 7:00 pm we will gather for a Service of Darkness as we consider the terrible payment that was necessary to free us from our sins.
Easter Sunday - April 1. A special worship service in celebration of our Lord's Resurrection will begin at 10:30 am. Breakfast will be served, by donation, from 9-10 am. All proceeds will support our work with Cyrus Center, the youth shelter and outreach program in Chilliwack. Faith Life Financial will provide a matching grant.
