Holy Cross Lutheran Church & School

Who are we?

We are a community of people who believe in Jesus Christ as our one, true Savior. We believe that He is the Christ, the Son of God. "In this way we know love, because He laid down His life for us." (I John 3:16) By this same love we are preserved and guided every day.

The Bible is precious to us because in it God reveals His love and all that His love does for us. Since the Holy Spirit gives life through these Scriptures, that means His Word does more than merely talk about saving us. It actually is the antidote to guilt, fear, doubt, sin, and eternal death. It is the power that can give the life that never ends!

Why are we here?

We seek to provide a setting in which we can come and worship. Our time of worship is a time to --

  • Confess our spiritual weaknesses and sins
  • Receive the assuring message of God's love and forgiveness
  • Seek direction from God's Word for our lives
  • Become inspired to face the challenges before us
  • Celebrate the life we have through Him.

Our fellowship is an uplifting source of encouragement and support, because we reassure and support each other with God's Word within the setting of the love He has created among us. Since God's Word is the only antidote to things like sin, guilt, and death, we don't ever want to lose it or allow it to be diluted.

Jesus announced: "I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples." (John 13:34-35)

Some of the main ways by which this love is shown among us is through --

  • Preaching and hearing God's life-giving Word of love in every worship service
  • Teaching His Word - for instance, we offer Bible Class, Sunday School, Youth Group, membership classes custom-made for every newcomer, and our own elementary school for grades K-8
  • Living lives that emphasize kindness, patience, humility, forgiving one another in love, while holding firm to His Word
  • Endeavoring to share the comfort, encouragement, and joy of God's Word with others outside our congregation

We come together to receive blessings God offers us and to serve others...

That's why we are here!
