Cross Lutheran is a vibrant and active family of faith in Yorkville, Illinois where people of all upbringings and identities can learn about and follow Jesus. All are welcome to join together on mission as we Walk with God, Grow in Faith Together and Love Our Neighbors.

We believe a follower of Jesus will mature as a disciple of Jesus through the intentional processes of spiritual formation and leadership multiplication. Jesus’ work on earth is not limited to a few people in a few places but is gifted to all believers in all places. At Cross we encourage and challenge each other to be the presence of Jesus right where you are.

Current Sunday Sermon Series: Lent for all Nations

“Lent for all Nations” is inspired by work from Concordia St. Louis Seminary Professor Ben Haupt.  We will examine characters in the New Testament and their explicitly named nationalities and ethnicities, because even these little details point us to Christ and teach us to love our neighbors.   While it may be more obvious to consider the importance of Pontius Pilate’s or the Good Samaritan’s countries of origin, why do the Gospel writers want us to know that the Simon who carried Jesus’s cross hailed from Cyrene?

We will also explore how the Christian church is truly Global.  We will highlight how people have reached across ethnic, cultural and geographic boundaries to bring the hope of Christ to All Nations!

Current Wednesday Sermon Series: It Is Finished

“It Is Finished” – These last words of Jesus are the inspiration for our Wednesday Night Multigenerational Worship Services.  This resource has video-based Bible studies to go along with it available through Right Now Media.   Jesus came to earth to stick His nose into our business.  He finished the work we couldn’t figure out how to even start.   Our God breaks through our fear of intimacy and loves us unconditionally and patiently.  He reminds us “It Is Finished”  and, in that truth, we find much peace and hope.

Community & Ministries



For by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:8-10
