Worship. Pray. Study. Serve. Give. Encourage. Invite.

These are the things Jesus did and teaches us to do. Here, we practice what has been taught to us. And we won't stop until He does.

Everyone is welcome and affirmed here. And not just to worship, but to participate and lead in ministries of all sorts and be part of the community. It's a friendly, challenging place. For everyone.

In convention in 2011, our national church (the ELCiC) approved a social statement on human sexuality, affirming the diginity and rights of ALL people, but specifically of "straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, two-spirited, queer, intersex and questioning" people and their families.

Church of the Cross began a congregational study on the social statement and a process to affirm the social statement on humani sexuality, which it completed October 20, 2012.

We affirm that all people deserve to have their identity and their family celebrated. We practice inclusion and affirmation because they are practices of faithfulness. People are people are people and God loves all of us.
