Visit Us

Welcome to Cross of Hope! Wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome here. We look forward to meeting you and sharing the blessings of the journey together!


Join us on Sundays and Wednesdays to hear God’s Word proclaimed through scripture, sermon messages, and song and share at God’s table in the Sacrament of Holy Communion. About our worship:

Sunday 9:00am

Experience the rich presence of God through the time honored Lutheran style of worship. Together we’ll sing hymns with organ and piano accompaniment, be blessed by musical offerings from the Voices of Hope choir, and additional worship music from a setting in Evangelical Lutheran Worship (ELW). Worship is about one hour.

Sunday 10:45am

Experience the rich presence of God through an intentionally casual style of worship. Together we’ll sing praise songs led by our worship band, Praise + Team, lift our voices in prayer, and support each other on our journey of faith. Worship is about one hour.

Wednesday Mid-Week Lenten  6:00pm

Experience the rich presence of God through a unique style of midweek worship. Together we’ll gather for a time of singing and prayer, encounter God’s word, and share Communion at God’s table. Worship is about 30 minutes. 

Occasionally, we host a joint Sunday service (usually at 10:00 am) for a rich experience in which we all worship together. This will be announced via our website and on our social media platforms. 

What to Expect


God loves the little children! Children are always welcome and encouraged to worship. We’re most fully the body of Christ when our youngest are present. For your hospitality, child care is provided in the nursery as desired.

Holy Communion

Taste and see that God is good! God meets us in the meal of Holy Communion. We believe and teach that Jesus is truly present and we come by the Spirit’s leading just as we are. You are always welcome at God’s table. For your hospitality, grape juice and gluten free bread are available.


Come as you are, all are welcome.

Sunday school/adult education

Jesus shapes our lives for daily living.  Find several classes each Sunday and Wednesday for all ages. Sunday classes meet at 9:45am and Wednesdays at 6:30pm for about an hour. Find out about our current class offerings here.


Coffee is a sign that God loves us. All visitors receive a free cup of specialty coffee or tea from our coffee shop/hospitality ministry. Just let us know you are visiting!
