Who We Are

We are a community that loves God and loves others, and we seek to live life as God has directed. We are far from perfect, but we are forgiven. Together we gather around God’s gifts of word and sacrament to be reminded of His love, to be assured of His grace and to sing His praises.

Holy Cross is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and a member of the Metropolitan Chicago Synod.

Our Services

What are services like?
Most of the year, we offer two services – one at 8:30 a.m. and one at 11:00 a.m. – each lasting about one hour. The 8:30 service is a traditional Lutheran service, utilizing a variety of liturgical resources to help draw us closer to God. Choirs, soloists and other special music enhance worship. The 11:00 service is a contemporary Christian service with a unique Lutheran approach. A contemporary praise ensemble leads the music. Communion is offered each week at both services. Try both and see which is the better fit for your personal preferences!

What is the community like?
Holy Cross is blessed with two strong leaders in our pastors, and they are committed to helping each person find his or her place at Holy Cross. Their regular rallying cry of “if you are in town, you are at worship” reminds us that in community we can feel even closer to God and together be His hands and feet to show others that great love. You may decide to join a choir, or help with Vacation Bible School, or read or usher at a service. The church is comprised of people with many gifts, and you just might bring us one we haven’t had before!

What if I'm not a Christian?
Come and explore! We believe that you matter to God. And because you matter to God, you matter to us. None of us is perfect, but we are forgiven. We gather around one God’s gifts of word and sacrament, to be reminded of God’s love, to be assured of God’s grace and to sing God’s praise.
