Welcome to Holy Cross!

Holy Cross is a place, but also a people. As a place, it is a Lutheran Church located in the beautiful community of Glenwood City. As a people, it is a gathering of sinners and saints — we believe we are both, at the same time.

We also believe that even though we are broken, that we are better together. We believe in the power of the Holy Spirit to gather us and enlighten us to grow into more faithful followers of Jesus Christ. 

We gather on Sunday mornings and Monday evenings to worship God, to celebrate the presence of Jesus with us in Holy Communion, to hear that we are loved and forgiven, and to learn how to become better able to live out that message in our words and actions.

Thank you for taking a moment to learn more about Holy Cross! Please also consider checking out the Visitor Information page where you can learn a bit more about where and when and why we gather.

You are invited to JAM!! (Jesus and Music)

Who doesn’t love Jesus and who doesn’t love music? All students who are in grades 1-6 are invited to come to church right after school for a fun time of play, learning and singing! This is an extra opportunity to learn about the Bible and get to know others in our community in addition to Sunday School on Sunday morning.

Each Wednesday starting on September 20th, we will include a snack, a group fun activity, storytelling from the Bible, a craft and a short worship service including lots of music, skits, puppets, and prayer. Anyone who would enjoy learning and worshipping in this way is invited to come and join in the activities (parents, grandparents, friends and neighbors)!!

Spread the news, and invite anyone who you think would like to come and JAM!
