Giving Thanks in My HOME
When I was growing up I was convinced that I had the meanest parents in the neighborhood. While
other children had cookies, Twinkies, and Kool-Aid for lunch, I had to eat a sandwich. While my
friends didn’t have to eat their vegetables for dinner, I always had to eat all of my vegetables. While I
always had to go to bed at a certain time, my friends told me they could stay up late. Plus, my parents always wanted
to know where I was at all times and who my friends were and what we were doing. On top of all this, my parents
actually had the audacity to break the child labor laws by making my sister and me work. We had to wash dishes,
make our beds, and clean our rooms.
As I became an adult, though, I realized that my parents definitely knew the difference between HOUSE and
HOME. As you look at these two words, you notice that they both begin with the same letters: HO, but this is
where the similarity ends. The first word, HOUSE, ends with the letters or the word USE, while the other word,
HOME, ends with the letters or the more personal word ME. Therein lies the difference. My parents never
thought about our HOUSE as just a place – a place we would USE to eat our meals and sleep at night. It was always
a HOME, which had the personality of my parents. It was in our HOME that my parents taught me lifelong lessons
about things such as sharing in the household duties or the more significant issue of sacrificial love.
As we prepare for our national day of Thanksgiving, consider how you view your church. Is it a HOUSE that you
come to USE once a week or is it a HOME where you can say, “This is where God comes to ME through others in
my church family.”? I am very thankful for my family – my wife, my daughter, and all of you who bless me in my
church HOME. I am touched by your faith in God – a faith that can move mountains of stubbornness in children,
mountains of neglect in hurting families, and mountains of despair one’s own life.
This is the kind of faith that comes from a daily association with Jesus Christ. This is the kind of faith that teaches
there is more to life than the material. This is the kind of faith that teaches that life continues beyond death in
heaven with God. When you receive sacrificial love and faith in God from your family, especially your church
family, you are truly blessed beyond words.
Therefore, as we prepare to enjoy a wonderful meal with our
families on Thanksgiving, let us all pause from our busy
schedules to gather together as a family in our church HOME
for a special Thanksgiving Eve worship service on Wednesday,
November 26, at 7:00pm to thank God for His many
blessings. I have a lot to be thankful for as God, indeed,
blesses ME in my HOME every day through all of you.
In God’s Service,
Pastor Bill
Happy Fall Ladies of Holy Cross,
As you know, Sariina Kalli will be moving to
Indiana with her family. We pray for God’s blessings as
she searches for a new church home. I would like to
take this opportunity to thank her for all her hard work
and dedication to Holy Cross and the LWML. She will
be greatly missed. We are still looking for an
enthusiastic woman to fill the role of Vice President. If
you are interested in serving or would just like more
information, please contact Melissa deCathelineau at
[email protected] or the church office.
The Eastern Zone Fall
Rally was held on Oct. 18 at
Advent Lutheran Church in
Chapel Hill. We enjoyed a bible
study, fellowship and a luncheon
as well as the quarterly meeting ,
where our very own Connie Reid
was inducted as the new President.
Congratulations to Connie. Join
me in praying for and encouraging
Connie in her new role.
Speaking of rallies, Holy Cross will be hosting
the Eastern Zone Spring Rally on Saturday, April 18,
2015. Holy Cross will be responsible for providing
lunch, table settings, and a guest speaker. We will be
choosing a mission to receive Gifts of the Heart, where
we will be inviting the attending ladies to donate items
needed for that mission. Planning for this important
event will start soon, so please let us know if you are
interested in designing this one-day rally of Christian
women from around our area.
Do you have lots of left over candy from
Halloween? Consider donating it to the College and
Military Outreach Program at Holy Cross. This is
another outreach program where we send care packages
to our college and military friends across the state. We
would love to have as many care packages as possible,
but we need your help to do it. A list of additional care
package ideas is located on the College and Military
Page 2
bulletin board in the narthex. Please drop off your
donations in the collection center and we will take care
of the rest. It’s never too late to add someone to the list,
so if you know of a college student or member of the
military, please let us know. Lizy Coleman has recently
volunteered to coordinate this outreach project for the
LWML. Thanks Lizy.
With the holidays fast approaching, it’s almost
time to set up the Salvation Army Angel Tree. We are
hoping to support 80 families this year. Once the tree
goes up, feel free to take a tag or two, shop, and return
the unwrapped gifts to the church by November 30.
Plan ahead now to share the gift of giving this holiday
season.
Mark your calendars now for the LWML Spring
Retreat at Fort Caswell at Oak Island. This amazing
weekend event will be May 15 – 17,2015. It promises to
be a fun-filled weekend with inspirational bible studies
and a whole lot more. Watch the newsletter for more
details as they become available.
Our annual LWML Christmas Luncheon will be
on Sunday, December 7 after the late service. This year’s
luncheon will be held at Simple Twist, just down Hwy
42 from the church. We will be introducing new board
members and collecting donations for the Holy Cross
Community Christmas Dinners. Please join us for great
food and fellowship at this informal and relaxing event.
Hope to see you there.
In His Service,
Melissa deCathelineau

Are you Playing in the Sand?
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the
Rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall,
because it had been founded on the Rock.” – Matthew 7:24-25
Do you remember the last time that you built a sandcastle? You probably
engineered your castle with incredible attention, choosing the perfect location on the
beach or in the sandbox, making sure that the walls were sturdy and that the castle was adorned with earthly
elements of leaves, sticks, shells, driftwood, or whatever else you could get your hands on. But where is that
sandcastle now? Is it still there? Of course not! The castle was made of sand.
When it comes to the Christian responsibility to which we have been called among our family or
spouse; among our own children, neighbors and friends, what it is that is receiving our best effort, our greatest
energy and our special attention?
Instead of listing out here what it is that we are spending the majority of our lives on, have you ever
asked your spouse, friends, family or children: “What is most important in my life?” What response would you get?
If the response that we get is anything other than Jesus, we are building our home upon sandy, shaky ground.
What we do with every aspect of our lives NOW, has massive implications of what is to come. The
point that Jesus makes in Matthew 7 is not to highlight the rains, the floods and the winds of life that may
come, because they certainly will. But Jesus took time to particularly emphasize what it is that we value in our
lives and what our lives are built upon in this weathered life. The rains of personal failure will strike you and
your children. The floods of sickness, addiction and death will come, too. And the winds of mistrust, laziness
and depression will wage against us as well. In these moments, what holds us up? What it is that will give our
children the foundation that they need in this life to weather any storm that strikes? What is it that will allow
our marriages to weather any storm that approaches?
The truth of God is that He has already established the Firm Foundation. His Son, Jesus, entered this
life to unveil and establish a Kingdom that knows no end. His life was marked with healing sicknesses that
crashed into people’s lives, being near to those stuck in floods of loneliness, and declaring forgiveness upon
those whose sin was like a massive hurricane wreaking havoc on their life. Here in Jesus, God’s grace is our
Foundation and Support. And through us, others can see the hope that we have which is authored by God
Himself.
Below are a few suggestions especially, for parents, as we build our homes upon the Foundation of Christ who
is our Rock:
1) Younger Children: Go out in the yard with your child and play with them. Play in the mud. Get your
hands dirty. Plant flowers together, or water them. Build a sandcastle with them if you can. Carve a
pumpkin. Give them your full attention for at least 30 min. and then take a moment during that time to tell
them that “God always gives us His full attention and is with us whenever we play, whenever we get hurt and at all times.”
This way, you can communicate to your child that not only are you there for them, but more, God is among
them, too.
2) Older Children: Come up with a secret handshake together. It doesn’t have to be a long handshake, but
could be as simple as three squeezes. Then, give it a meaning – either “I Love You” or “I care about you.” Use it
whenever you can with them – when they leave for school, when you leave for work, when they leave for a
night with friends or a sports practice. Let this be an opportunity for you to connect with them if they are
unwilling to talk with you. Maybe this can be the start of further communication among each other, as
well as ways that you can communicate Jesus and His Love to your child within your home.
And in all things, please be reminded that Our Lord, Jesus, said to us,
“In this world there will be many troubles, but take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
If you have any suggestions on topics or themes that you would like to see addressed in The Family Table, please email suggestions to [email protected]
All suggestions will remain anonymous.

The sun hadn’t even arisen for the
day when all was said and done.
But the moon was witness to the
fun that was October 17th and 18th
from 6:30pm to 7:00am. Nearly 40
Confirmation youth – 6th and 7th
graders – several adults and
numerous mentors converged
upon Holy Cross for the annual
Confirmation Lock-In. The topic? The 2nd Article of the Creed. The
Question? Who, really, is Jesus? At this Lock-In, we played LOTS
of games and danced to Just Dance 4 on the Nintendo Wii. We
played a highly addicting game known as “Human Battleship”,
watched a few movies, and didn’t get much sleep. The soda was
flowing. The snacks were had. Silence was had to find.
But the true substance of this Confirmation Lock-In involved an
exploration of the Bible and Luther’s Small Catechism, coupled
with mentor experience that they shared, to get a more clear
picture and understanding of who Jesus said He was, who others in
the Bible said that He was and who WE say that He is in our lives
today. The evening closed with nothing more than thankfulness
and praise to God as we came together in the Sanctuary and joined
in a youth-led historical worship service known as Compline (a
word meaning “completion”, this service has been used throughout the last 400500 years as people came together to worship after the “completion” of their
work-day before returning home). We each had the opportunity to place
our hands on the Bible, resting on the altar, and respond to the
question presented to us individually: “Who is Jesus to you?” and “Do
you intend to follow Him?” and closed with a hymn written by Martin
Luther in the mid 1500’s called, “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” as we
gave God – the Father, Son and Holy Spirit - our thanks through
song for being the stronghold in our lives that never fails.
The 8th grade Confirmation In Action
(CIA) enjoyed an afternoon at Ken's Korny
Corn Maze after assembling 200 Operation
Christmas Child shoeboxes. The students
broke into teams and were joined by Troy
Hirt, Pastor Tom, and Shayla. Each team
made it out of the maze without assistance
and in under one hour!
And then it was free-time for the rest of the evening – more snacks,
more drinks, more movies and more games.
Without the help of the following people, though, this evening could not have been
possible: Shaunna Voorhees, Donna
Harlow, Shayla Roma, Tonya Pischke,
Beth Otto, Chris Michetti, Laurel
Colpetzer, Todd Urban and the
mentors who attended Friday evening
to share a little bit of their life
experience with the youth. Also,
thanks to the Confirmation Parents
who provided food and drinks.
To each of you, THANK YOU from
the bottom of my heart. I am entirely
appreciative of each of you!

Can you believe that this year is 5/6 completed? There are only 61 days left in the year
2014. I don’t know about you but I plan to enjoy these last two months of the year.
At Open Arms, November is one of our greatest months. Each year we cook eight turkeys
and invite all of our families to join us for lunch the last Wednesday of the month. This
gives us FAMILY time and we are able to give thanks for all our many blessings. Each year
our crowd gets bigger and bigger. Last year we had 200 people attend!
While all this is going on we invite some of our past children to help make lunches for
groups that have to work on Thanksgiving Day. This year we will send food to the Johnston
Memorial Hospital (on 42w), the State Highway Patrol, and to one of our local firehouses.
The children also make cards letting these community helpers know how much we
appreciate all they do to protect us. Each year we hear back from these groups saying that
the food was appreciated but they mostly liked reading the cards.
I challenge each family to do the same. Take a minute to send a card to someone in your
area that has to work on Thanksgiving Day. Let them how much you appreciate them
giving up their family time to serve and protect our community.
Wishing Everyone a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving Holiday!
