The Holy Christian Church was born on the cross.
How strange and yet wonderful it is that in Christ’s dying breath, the Church was given life!
For it is on this cross that His blood flows down, His water rushes out, His Spirit is given up and His Word cries out: “It is finished.”
At Lutheran Church of the Cross we joyfully confess that Christ’s gifts continue to flow forth from His cross today, as He calls out to each of us through His Word, washing us clean in His righteousness, resting in the work He has finished and so taking our place in the communion of His body, blood, water and Word.
Worship at LCC, therefore, is centered around the cross of Christ.
Here at LCC, you will find Liturgical, Sacramental, and Christ-centered teaching, preaching and singing. In the Divine Service, God gathers us to the place where heaven and earth come together, where our Lord meets his people to save them from their sins. The flow of worship goes from heaven above to earth below and back again. We receive from God his grace and mercy found in the preaching of His Word, the waters of Holy Baptism, and in the Lord’s Supper. In response, we give him all thanks and praise for his free and undeserved love.
Sunday morning at LCC begins with Christian Education for children and youth and Bible Class for adults at 9:00am. The Divine Service follows at 10:15 am. During the seasons of Advent and Lent, we gather together at 7:30 pm for an evening worship service, which is preceded by a meal in the fellowship hall at 6:00 pm.
The Lord’s Supper
Every Sunday, we celebrate the Lord’s Supper, which means, every Sunday, we eat and drink our Lord’s body and blood, and by doing so, “proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes” (1 Corinthians 11:26). In gathering at our Lord’s table we confess and believe that the Lord’s Supper is not an act of man or simply a memorial meal, but it is a free gift of God in which he gives us his Son’s body and blood in, with, and under the bread and wine for the forgiveness of sins. When we eat this meal together, we confess the same faith together. We commune not only with God but with one another. If you are not from a Lutheran background and confession, and have questions regarding the practice of the Lord’s Supper, please contact Pastor Harrison at (260) 615-9991, email him at (firstname.lastname@example.org), or speak with him before or after our Sunday service.
