When did the church start and what are we doing now?
Cross Lutheran Church was organized in 1877 and has rich history of worship, outreach, community involvement, and of course, music. We were lucky enough to have an Anniversary Committee (for our 125th anniversary in 2002) create a history book that outlines many of the moments in history that honor our heritage. This book is available at our church office, so feel free to inquire about a closer look into our congregation’s history.
Cross Lutheran has undergone many changes in the last 10 years, be we remain true to our heritage.
Perhaps the most significant of the changes are the transitions in Pastoral leadership. We had a long time pastor 20+ years move from our congregation as her family has grown up. We had a first call pastor and her young family with us for two years, had an interim pastor and his family join us for a stint, along with another Pastor. Now, we are led by the wonderful Pastor Doug Andersen whom we share with Zion Lutheran in Ashippun. Each of these relationships has inspired us in different ways, and we are reminded by our leaders both past and present of God’s grace.
