Connecting Adults at Cross
At Cross Lutheran Church, we have a variety of opportunities available for adult congregation members who wish to become more involved in the community, our ministry, and outreach programs.
Cross Lutheran’s community groups are an opportunity for people of all backgrounds to become connected to one another. Community groups offer a welcoming environment where you can share your story and work towards common goals. No matter your interests, skillsets or strengths, we have a community group that will enrich your daily life as you and fellow members grow in faith together.
Our support groups are intended for those who need a little extra care and guidance during a time of hardship. Our groups are designed to accommodate a wide variety of ages and challenges. Being surrounded by unjudging support ultimately reminds you to look at your adversity as an opportunity to grow in love and faith. Instead of turning towards hopelessness and defeat, we welcome you to turn towards strength and positivity.
