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.
