CHURCH & SCHOOL
LOVE | WALK | GROW
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 a 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 in the presence of Jesus right where you are.
Current Sunday Sermon Series:
Trust In the Lord: Faithful For The Future
Our sermon series for Lent (beginning Sunday, February 26) is titled “Trust InThe Lord: Faithful For The Future.” With the message of salvation by faith alone, the 16th-century Reformation focused the world’s attention on the New Testament’s world-altering proclamation of Christ’s death and resurrection. That message continues to reverberate in the 21st century. Only faith in Christ’s promises restores us to life with God and frees us to live the life that God intended for us in this world. This series explores how faith in Christ shapes every aspect of our lives in such a way that we can never exhaust the inexpressible riches of God’s love for us.
Cross Lutheran brings us together in celebration
Our Lutheran church is home to an inspiring and fascinating celebration of faith and love. Our community is not only fun – it lifts the hearts of all of us who believe in a better world and gives us hope for tomorrow. Cross is a place where people of all ages can worship and encourage harmony.
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
