Services

Our goal for worship is that for the approximate hour you spend worshipping at Lutheran Church of the Cross you feel the nurturing, challenging, grace-filled presence of God.  For by God’s grace…we were created to worship, called to teach, and committed to serve.

Communion

On the First and Third Sundays of each month, we celebrate the gift of Holy Communion.  All who believe in Christ’s presence in the sacrament are welcome to the Lord’s Table.  Communion will be distributed in a continuous fashion. There is wine or grape juice available.  The wine is red in color and the grape juice is clear in color.

On Wednesday evening, communion is served using wafers and grape juice.  It is done by intinction (Intinction is the Eucharistic practice of partly dipping the consecrated bread, or host, into the consecrated wine before consumption by the communicant.

If you are gluten intolerant, please let the communion servers know and they will give you a gluten-free substitute.

Nursery

There is no formal nursery at this time.  However, children are always welcome in worship and if need be, there are toys and games in the Crossway Center.
