Cross of Christ Lutheran Church is seeking to fill the position, Director of Children’s Education Ministries.

With much affirmation of Mary Jore’s gifts for teaching, creating, and caring for our young people Mary has decided to reframe her children’s ministry roll. In abundant grace the avenue to transition Mary’s roll outside of the staff position is the result. Mary looks forward to providing a strong foundation for the next blessed soul to lead our kids. We can count on Mary to see Vacation Bible School through and VBS is rolling out nicely. Mary’s hours will remain the same for near future. Our prayer for Mary, our children and families, and congregation is for them to be surrounded with gratitude and love in this season of change, that we would sense God’s

presence and delight in their daily lives. Creating God, who makes all things new, prepare our heart and mind for new beginnings.

Job Posting:  Part time (10-15 hrs/wk) Director of Children’s Education Ministries at Cross of Christ Lutheran Church to assist the pastor in providing the children and families of Cross of Christ Lutheran Church with a ministry that points them to Christ, leads them into a deeper relationship with God, and integrates them into the life of the congregation.

God's work. Our hands.

Sunday, September 12, 2021. This day is an opportunity to celebrate who we are as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America - one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor.

Service activities offer an opportunity for us to explore one of our most basic convictions as Lutherans: that all of life in Jesus Christ - every act of service, in every daily calling, in every corner of life - flows freely from a living, daring confidence in God's grace.

Watch for more information. We will gather for a shortened worship service at 10:15 am and then be sent out for various service activities in the community and within the church building. All ages and abilities are welcome!


Meals on Wheels needs Volunteers-commitment of 3-4 times a year, 1 to 1-1/2 hours per time. If you are interested in helping or more information, please contact Vicki McKay at 896-2081.

Cross of Christ Memorial Garden
The Memorial Shade Garden located under the maple trees in the southwest corner of the Cross of Christ property has emerged into a place of beauty, peace and respect for those who have been memorialized with individually inscribed plaques. Installation and dedication of new plaques will be on-going into the foreseeable future.
Plaques ordered during the winter months will be installed after our spring thaw. Each year we will include new names for inclusion in our annual All-Saints memorial tribute.
Each plaque sells for $100.  The actual cost of the product plus engraving is $50 with the additional $50 going into a fund to maintain the garden into the future.  Plaque order forms are available in the church office.
