About Us

Holy Cross is a member congregation of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. We are committed to proclaiming the saving work of Jesus Christ through which God invites us all to be his forgiven people. This is the good news, or Gospel, which the Old and New Testament Scriptures of the Bible unanimously acclaim. If you have never seriously considered this good news for yourself or wonder how you can be part of God's forgiven people, it's simple. God simply invites us to believe and follow him.

We are a growing community of God's forgiven children called to follow Christ.
