Cross of Christ Lutheran Church has been a cornerstone of our community dating back to 1855 when the Houston Lutheran Church was organized. Over a century and a half later, life has significantly changed but the spiritual life that our ancestors proclaimed still exists and continues to flourish. We believe, as they did, that a strong faith is essential to a fulfilling life and we strive daily to follow our convictions.


We are blessed with beautiful houses of worship and a spiritually gifted congregation.


Cross of Christ has a school-year and a summer schedule with traditional and contemporary services. We also have an active W/ELCA, senior choir and prayer group. Yearly we host a meatball supper and an Easter breakfast.


We are located in a picturesque rural setting with the opportunity to enjoy nature and the environment while being 30 minutes from La Crosse, WI and less than one hour from Rochester, MN.
