Welcome to Cross of Hope!

God, Our Safety and Strength, hear our prayers this day for all suffering the destruction from Tropical Storm Harvey. Come to the aid of all experiencing devastating flooding and give skill and courage to emergency responders. Ease the rainfall that continues to threaten and direct those coordinating rescue and relief efforts. Stir up abundant support from those who watch the rising waters from afar. We ask this in the name of Jesus, who walked amid the storm and the Spirit who never leaves or forsakes us. Amen.
We continue to pray for all those in Texas and Louisiana affected by the historic flooding. Donate to Lutheran Disaster Response to be a part of the bold response and loving care throughout the long road ahead. Bulletin inserts will be available at church to respond by mail as well. The Peace and presence of God offer hope and comfort to all in need.

Help in the long road to recovery from Hurricane Harvey.


Update from Lutheran Disaster Response

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble."
– Psalm 46:1

Dear friends,

Now that the devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey is coming fully into focus, we see that the need will be great and recovery will take many years.Your gifts to Lutheran Disaster Response designated for “Hurricane Response – United States” at this time will be used in full (100 percent) in responding to Hurricane Harvey until the response is complete. You have an opportunity to make sure our neighbors in Texas and Louisiana are not forgotten.The work of Lutheran Disaster Response is comprehensive and extensive. From when the news breaks to years after the headlines fade, from hurricanes in the United States to flooding in South Asia, we’re there – walking alongside disaster survivors and helping them recover and rebuild for as many years as it takes. I also invite you to be part of our multiple responses to disasters in the U.S. and around the world by making a gift to Lutheran Disaster Response where it's needed most.

Greetings and Peace in the name of Jesus.


Blessings as you explore our website. See how God is at work through the ministry of the church and schools serving the people of Albuquerque and beyond. Notice how God is stirring in your own life and how God might be calling you to participate in ministry through this community of faith. Here you may catch a glimpse of the Spirit and then be invited to come and see, come and worship, come and experience God’s love for you and for all of God’s beautiful creation.

We look forward to worshiping together and getting to talk soon!
