Lutheran Church of the Cross (LCC) is an ELCA congregation in the heart of the Brainerd Lakes Area, with a membership of 1,570 and an average weekly worship attendance of 420. Sunday worship is a traditional service with a strong foundation of musical gifts.
During the school year (September through May), Wednesday evening features a more contemporary teaching-based service with a worship band, followed by programs for youth and adults.
You will find LCC to be a church that shares a living, daring confidence in God's grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person -- questions, complexities and all! Join us as we do God's work in Christ's name for the life of the world. We welcome all people into discipleship with Jesus Christ.
Our mission: God calls Lutheran Church of the Cross to welcome all people into discipleship with Jesus Christ through Prayer, Scripture Reading, Worship, Service in Christ's Name, Stewardship, and Hospitality.
