Growing in Grace Together

Holy Cross is a Missouri Synod Lutheran Christian church located in Los Gatos, California.  We are called to connect people to His Son, Jesus Christ, and to show God's love by caring for each other, our guests and visitors, and our community.  We strive to genuinely welcome, consistently include, and intentionally support you in your faith walk.

Our members are growing to be passionate followers of Jesus Christ with a deep, contagious faith.  We work to equip, encourage, and challenge each other to be His servants to the world.


Come as Visitors, Leave as Friends

We welcome you to join us at any time for worship, Bible study, and any activities that interest you.  If you would like to become a member of Holy Cross, please contact the church office at 408-356-3525.




Update from Pastor Koschmann

Dear Friends in Christ,

This is the Twelfth Sunday of the Pandemic, and it feels like it has been that long.  The shadow of uncertainty just seems to hang on.  The truth is that Sunday is the Day of Pentecost.  In the middle of this pandemic, the Holy Spirit still comes, Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.” Acts 2:2. The power and presence of God, the Holy Spirit, is with us to blow away all the shadows of our lives with faith, hope, and love.  Read more...

Holy Cross Offering Virtual VBS July 20-24

Due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic the Children’s Ministry Committee of Holy Cross Lutheran Church has made the decision to cancel both in-house VBS programs this year due to the uncertainty of the health and welfare of both children and staff.

Youth of all ages are invited to share a virtual VBS experience with their families at home this summer. This summer VBS will be online and will offer almost everything a traditional VBS would have, but will be designed to work easily at home. We will have Bible stories, videos, related activities, music and much more. Stay tuned. More information to come soon!
