Project Reindeer Rosebud

Because we are unable to host our annual Cookie Walk event to benefit the folks at Two Strike, we are launching ‘Project Reindeer Rosebud’ to help us guide our way through the fog of Covid-19 to bring Christmas to every girl and boy (age or at heart!) at the Rosebud reservation in South Dakota. We have chosen two valuable ministries to support: Tree of Life Ministry and Panther’s Clothes Closet. We are thrilled to be able to collaborate with these ministry partners to help bring hope and light amidst the fog to those at Rosebud!

How you can help! 


This is our 12th annual drive for our Rosebud families and your past donations have made a significant difference in the Lakota lives. We thank you! If you make a donation to the 2020 Project Reindeer Rosebud fundraiser, your name will be automatically entered into a drawing to win a $50 Mainstreet Libertyville gift certificate as our thank you for your kind outreach and support of our Lakota families.


Donations will be accepted through Sunday, December 13. The winner will be drawn on Wednesday, December 16, and notified shortly thereafter. In advance, thank you for your thoughtful assistance for this fundraiser.

Tree of Life Ministry

Tree of Life is an organization serving Lakota families located on the Rosebud Reservation with food, clothing, and love. They serve 300+ lunch meals per day. They are blessed to have enough food and clothing donations; however, they do not have enough food containers to serve the meals to those in need. They have asked us to provide a supply of food containers so that they may continue their ministry.

Panther's Clothes Closet

Panther’s Clothes Closet is located in and operated by the Rosebud Elementary School. They provide clothing and supplies to all of their students. The Panther’s Clothes Closet works in conjunction with Tree of Life if a family is short on food. They discretely assist their students with the necessities of life to be successful students. No child is left behind or without. Holy Cross will be making a monetary donation to assist them in purchasing items for their ‘clothes closet’. 


After prayerful and thoughtful deliberation, the decision has been made to suspend indoor worship at Holy Cross Lutheran Church until further notice.


Virtual worship services are posted on the following page:

Sunday School classes, educational and relational groups will meet virtually. See a list of groups meeting online here:
