Farewell Potluck!


This Sunday, February 17, marks a special day for the congregation as we send Pastor Wood, Kali and their daughters on their way to Indonesia.   The service that morning will include a special rite of sending.  Right after service we’ll share some time of fellowship and encouragement with the Woods during a potluck lunch.  The people of Holy Cross have been invited and encouraged to join us for this time of celebration.  Please plan on being part of this special send off, it promises to be a memorable morning.  Feel free to bring whatever you like to the meal—if you have any questions, you can contact the church office or Steve Kuhl at 314-210-6692.

Green Light!

We have been greenlighted to deploy to Indonesia. This is great news! All of your support has been to get us to our destination to work with the Indonesian Christian Lutheran Church. God has answered our prayers for safety on the road, health and wellness, and for funding. We are fervently packing and getting our home ready to sell. Our goal is to deploy as soon as possible!

  • For a smooth transition to Indonesia.
  • Peaceful farewells with family and friends.
