Holy Cross follows the way of Jesus Christ through dynamic worship, education, and daily Christian practice.
At Holy Cross we believe that it is through the gift of God’s Grace that we are saved. The people of Holy Cross Lutheran Church trust in the living hope of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We passionately worship God, follow Jesus, and live in the Spirit in a way that brings the Bible to life today while honoring our Lutheran heritage.
At the core of Holy Cross worship is the Gospel. In Ephesians 2, Paul writes that “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.”
Holy Cross is a congregation that loves to worship God through music. Our services begin and end with vibrant spirit filled songs led by our Music Minister Jon Torgrimsen. Our Pastor J. David Knecht, shares a Bible based sermon followed by a sharing of prayers, passing of peace and honoring the Lord’s Prayer. Each Sunday, regardless of how you classify yourself or the world classifies you we offer Holy Communion to all those who attend.
During our Sunday Service, we provide a children’s ministry. Following our Sunday service we celebrate our week together as a community through coffee fellowship time. James challenges us as Christians to “show our faith through our works.” Holy Cross shows our faith through our work with Market Street Mission, the Holy Cross Food Ministry, and Springfield HOPE.
Our Nursery School
Holy Cross Christian Nursery School offers a warm and loving learning environment for children 2 to 5 years. We have 5 fully equipped classrooms, which are considerably larger than state requirements. Our goals are to share with your child the living hope in the light of Christ and to help them be the very best the Lord intends for them to be socially, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. We have a nurturing staff offers individual attention to each child as well as encouraging open communication with the parents.
