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.
Confirmation starts September 6 at 5:30 pm
Wednesday Evening Worship resumes September 6 at 7:00 pm
The format and message will be much the same as Sundays (including frequent Holy Communion) but we'll shorten it up some. We trust that this will be a welcome alternative for our youth and busy parents!
Monday Morning Bible Study Resumes
What do you notice? What do you wonder? I frequently ask these kinds of questions at our 11:00 Monday Bible Study because being curious about scripture is always a good thing as the Holy Spirit will bless us with insights and wisdom for living. Our regular practice is to look at the upcoming Sunday's preaching text. It's informal and engaging and we'd love to have you join us!
Worship is available on via Facebook!

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 13th, 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!
