Welcome 


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.
