School News & Events to Support CLS

Cross Cares is our Homeless Ministry that started as an after-school club stuffing bags with “ easy-open” food items and hygiene kits. Cross Lutheran has partnered with Steve's Pantry at Gruene United Methodist Church. They provide us with the bags, we fill them up and then they pass them out to the homeless in our community. On the 3rd Sunday of the month we are asking you to bring "easy-open" food items and personal size hygiene items to support this ministry. Easy open items means that they can be opened without a can opener. SAMS's Club and CostCo are great places to shop for these items. Thank you for supporting this ministry. 

Are you looking for a great way to support ministries at Cross Lutheran Church and School by doing some of the things you already do?  Check these out:

If you shop, try pointing your browser to  You get the same Amazon selection, but a percentage of your purchases are given back to Cross.  Be sure to designate Cross Lutheran Church and School.

If you drink Coke products, be sure to save mycokerewards information from boxes of cans or the lids from coke bottles.  Go to to upload your points.  You can donate them to Cross Lutheran School.  Points can be used for equipment purchases and other neat ways!

Watch your groceries for the Box Tops for Education label.  Every box top is worth 10 cents.  It may not seem like much, but it adds up quickly!  Enlist the help of your friends and family.  You can drop off Box Tops in the school office.  It’s an easy way to support our ministry!

Shop with who?  Shop with SCRIP!  SCRIP is a term for gift cards.  Did you know that you could purchase gift cards through Cross Lutheran Church and School to use in your regular shopping routine?  Going to H-E-B?  Pick up a gift card.  Because Cross gets SCRIP at a reduced rate, the savings is passed on to the church and school.  You still get your full purchase price, and everyone is all smiles! J  Scrip is available in the taco line on Sunday mornings and each day in the church/school office.

Thanks for your continued support of the ministries of Cross Lutheran Church and School!
