HOLY CROSS LUTHERAN CHURCH (LCMS)
     "Offer your bodies as living sacrifices." (Romans 12:1)  Our life in Christ is not a static thing, but in movement from good to better, just as a sick man proceeds from sickness to health.  We were, at one time, not just spiritually sick, but actually dead in sin (Ephesians 2:1). Jesus has worked in us new, eternal life through His cross and open tomb. He now continues to work in us, renovating our attitudes, thoughts and desires so our lives reflect His own attitudes and actions.
     Our worship services are on Sundays at 8 and 10:30 a.m., with Sunday school for adults and children at 9:15 am.  We're located at 2200 Third Avenue. Come join us!
