Welcome to Cross

We welcome you and your family to our Lutheran congregation with open arms. Our doors are open to people of all backgrounds, occupations, and cultures. No matter where you are in your spiritual journey, we invite you to Sunday worship. We hope you find peace within our sanctuary and love throughout our community groups.

Cross Lutheran Church wants you to feel sincerely embraced and at home with us. This is why we provide a list of ways to get involved in our Lutheran congregation. Consider this as an overview of our ministries and ways you can become a dedicated disciple at Cross. Our goal is to help you on your journey of spiritual growth and experience the love of Jesus Christ!

Our intention is that people connected to Cross will mature as disciples of Christ by walking with God, growing in faith together, and loving their neighbors. What does this mean? By walking with God, disciples at Cross worship continually, pray persistently, live generously, and both give and receive grace.

By growing in faith together, disciples at Cross experience biblical community, mentor one another, read and respond to God’s Word, and courageously live transformed lives. By loving our neighbors, disciples at Cross have a servant heart, bless others using their unique God-given abilities, and share the truth about Jesus.

As a staff we are here to serve you in any way we can. So don’t hesitate to track any of us down to answer any of your questions or help you get connected into Christian Community at Cross. We are here for you!

Blessings,

Bill Ziech
Director of Discipleship

At Cross, our Lutheran congregation loves to gather in community to hear God’s Word and to receive His gifts. We cherish the values and traditions of the Church and strive to find opportunities to respond in ways that are relevant to each generation.
