Mission Statement of Cross of Glory Lutheran Church

Our mission at Cross of Glory is to proclaim and spread the word of God, and to administer the sacrements.


God has called us in this time and place to be aware of and minister to the social and spiritual needs of all people.


Our goal is to create a loving and caring community in which all individuals are given the opportunity and encouragement to participate in our life together.


With God's help, this family of God's people will grow in grace as we respond both individually and collectively to the Good News of Jesus Christ.
