Welcome to Santa Cruz Lutheran Church
Join us… We are a diverse gathering of ordinary people who are committed to building enduring relationships in Jesus’ Name:
With each other
And with the world around us.
We invite you to come, discover, and find your place among us. Todos son bienvenidos aquí.
Important Update… Last Sunday, March 15th, Pastor Bob announced that we are canceling our traditional Sunday worship and Lenten worship services until after April 1st and perhaps longer. The sanctuary will be open on Sundays from 9:00 to 11:00 am during that time for those who wish to come for prayer. Remember we can only have 10 people at a time and that we should continue to observe social distanceing and find other ways to greet one another without hand shakes or hugs.
The office is open Tuesday through Friday from 9:30 am to 2:00 pm.
The Food Bank is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11-2:00 pm and Wednesday from 5-8:00 pm. This will be the same unless we hear differently from the Food Bank though we are already implementing procedures to keep contact with the community to a minimum.
We offer the traditional liturgy here at Santa Cruz and Holy Communion is celebrated at every worship gathering. We believe that Christ is truly present in the consecrated bread and wine and we welcome all who wish to receive the Holy Sacrament to the Lord’s Table. We gladly offer First Communion instruction to any baptized child who has completed 2nd Grade. Baptismal instruction for all ages is also available.
Serve & Grow with us… There are so many opportunities here at Santa Cruz to find your perfect fit among us and to make a positive and lasting difference in doing so! Here’s a quick list of some of those ministries (and there is always room for more)…
