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,

What is your deepest groan or angst right now in your life?  It may or may not be related to the pandemic?  God earnestly invites us to pray to him.  Since I often do not know how to express my inner longings in prayer, I find great comfort in the Holy Spirit’s wordless groans as he brings my prayers before the Father’s will in the name of Jesus.  Faith is the key to our prayer life as we trust in God’s promises and receive a gift of hope.  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. 

Invite your grandchildren, nieces, nephews, friends, and neighbors to come and enjoy the week. Go to https://holycrosslosgatos.com/vbs
