In-Person Sunday Service Suspended

Due to the increase of Covid19 positive cases in Houston County the Cross of Christ Preparedness Team along with input from the Worship and Music Cabinet have made the recommendation to suspend in-person worship and limit in-person activities beginning Monday, November 9, 2020. We'll re-evaluate the statistics and safety of gathering in-person toward the end of November. Cross of Christ along with Pastor Linda's consultation will still allow immediate-family-only funerals and baptisms in the sanctuary, but no visitation or fellowship. We have drive-through communion planned for the first and third Sundays of the month. Other small groups will still be allowed to meet in person on a case by case determination while adhering to all Covid19 protocols. Confirmation lessons are available online via the Youth and Family Facebook page and email. Sunday school and other children's ministry will be provided hybrid; online, take-home, and via small groups as determined by Pastor Linda and Children's Ministry Director, Mary Jore.


Cross of Christ Lutheran Church is not closed, in-person gatherings have been suspended and only held with prior approval. Please contact the church office, 507-896-3102 or by email
