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

                                                                             08/16/20 Update

Dear Friends in Christ,

Faith is the wonderful gift of God that is created in us to receive all of the spiritual blessings that are given to us from Jesus.  Faith grows from our being nourished by God’s Word and the Sacraments. 

I encourage you to come to our Holy Cross outdoor worship especially to receive the Lord’s Supper.  The bread and wine are in a single prepackaged sealed individual serving that you pick up on your way to your seat. Last week we had 29 worshipers at each service, 8:00 & 9:30 AM.  Read more...

Interested in Ringing Handbells?

This is the best time of the year to begin ringing the bells!  We all start from the basics, and we will be playing some familiar songs as we get into the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons.  Practices will be held on most Mondays from 7:30 to 9 PM starting now carefully with separation outside until we can return to sanctuary.  The first full practice is on August 24.  We’ve planned special steps to minimize exposure to the virus including wearing masks, playing at individual tables, and using separate music books.  Read more...

Quilt Auction Cancelled ThisYear

Regretfully, we must cancel the Sew & Grow annual Quilt Auction this fall. Because maintaining strict infection control protocols is paramount, it is prudent that we keep everyone safe from the spread of the COVID-19 virus.  We hope to hold the auction again in 2021.

IN THE MEANTIME, in lieu of the auction, please donate generously to the San Jose Family Shelter and the Real Options Pregnancy Center designated funds we have in place at Holy Cross.  You can use the envelopes provided at the worship check-in table and place your donations in the offering box or mail it to the church.  Just mark the envelope with the name of the organization you are supporting. THANKS SO MUCH for serving and helping others in need with Jesus’ love. 

Outdoor Worship

Holy Cross is now gathering for outdoor worship. We are blessed to be able to worship together outdoors in small groups of 35 at each service, 8:00 AM and 9:30 AM. We are taking reservations for outdoor worship and the deadline for making reservations is each Wednesday at 2:00 PM. Reservations on a first come first served basis are open at 10:00 AM the prior Monday to each Sunday service by contacting Linda Lutz by phone 408-356-3525 Ext. 1 or email secretary@holycrosslosgatos.com. As it is safe to do so, we will work towards the goal for all of us to worship together once again.
