Our History

Overview

Founded in 1870 by thirteen German-American men, Cross Lutheran has seen many changes over the course of its 140 years.  As the community around it changed, Cross evolved into a dynamic, mission-driven congregation that actively reaches out to the neighborhood and its people.  

 

We invite you to learn more about Cross and its history from several different angles.

Read five profiles of our members and see the history of Cross unfold through their eyes.
