OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LCMS
SO… what are you getting involved with if you choose to attend Holy Cross Lutheran Church?
Everybody is a little leery of organizations that we don’t know much about. What you may want to know about Holy Cross is that we are a Christian group of people who believe that God has created us for a relationship with Him and with each other. That relationship is strengthened as we “live love and learn” together. Because this is a somewhat organic relationship it is not necessary to “Join” Holy Cross in order to “Belong”. If you are accepted by Christ then you are accepted by us.
Our congregation is a part of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod a Lutheran denomination that dates back to the 1860’s and was begun by a group of German Immigrants. While we work with this larger group to train our pastors and teachers and send missionaries overseas, we are still completely autonomous. We choose our own pastors and own our own land and buildings and any authority that the Synod has is advisory to the congregation. Joining with the other 6000+ congregations that make up the Synod gives us the opportunities of a much larger group, while our own congregation of 1200 members retains the close family atmosphere that allows us to care for each other.
