Our weekly worship is held 10:45-Noon each Sunday, and can be joined both in person or online. The Service includes many of the traditional hallmarks of a Lutheran church service: forgiveness of sins, readings, sermon, communion, hymns, and more.
In addition to celebrating the standard liturgical calendar, Cross layers on many secular events, including Black History Month, Women’s Herstory Month, Pride Month, National Latino/Hispanic Month, Earth Day, World Aids Day, Coming Out Sunday, and many more.
Please note: Masks are not required, but are appreciated. Some of our members have underlying health issues. We thank you for your consideration of others.
Members are welcome to serve in a variety of ways:

Bringing together members of Cross Lutheran’s three pre-COVID choirs and various members of the community, the Cross Community Choir is a diverse group. Under the capable direction Dr. Rose Watson, the group sings a wide range of styles from gospel and traditional hymns to contemporary songs of praise.
Rehearsals are held most Saturdays in the sanctuary, beginning at 11:00am. (Please arrive early so we can start on time.) Rehearsal will run for 90 minutes; if we start late, we may rehearse a little past 12:30. Anyone interested in participating in the Community Choir is welcome to come to a rehearsal, or contact the church office.
