Christian growth opportunities are many for those who wish to explore.  In the Episcopal Church, one of our traditions is to learn and question as we move along in our spiritual journey.

It is time for a new school year to begin and Holy Cross has a great deal to offer all ages.  There are special programs from our Program Committee, our Fellowship Committee and our wonderful music program.

Those who attend Holy Cross regularly fall into one of the following categories:

Confirmed Communicants:

Baptized persons who have been confirmed in, or received into the Episcopal Church either by confirmation, reception, or letter of transfer from another Episcopal Church.

Baptized Members:

All baptized persons, of any age (including children), whose names are enrolled either by baptism, letter of transfer, or personal request. Adults may be enrolled as Baptized Members, but still not be Confirmed Communicants.


Persons who are active in the life of this congregation (through worship, giving or program participation), but their official membership remains elsewhere.

Joining the Episcopal Church of the Holy Cross

baptismThere are two ways to become a member of Holy Cross—through baptism and/or a letter of transfer from your current church.

You do not have to be an Episcopalian to be a member of our parish. Any person who has received the sacrament of Holy Baptism, whether in this church or in another Christian church, can become a member of Holy Cross. Those who have been a member of another Episcopal Church or any other Christian Church may have their membership transferred to Holy Cross.

If you are interested in becoming a member, please fill out a Membership form and forward it to Wanda May in the church office (828-859-9741, fax: 828-859-9454 or
