To Worship, To Witness, To Learn To Serve God, Sharing Time, Talents and Treasures

Our Church

We are members of a denomination, the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, that has as its logo - the cross. We strive to "lift high the cross" and proclaim Christ crucified and risen in all that we teach and do at Cross of Christ.

Founded in 1973, we are a church together to worship the true, Triune God. When we gather for worship, God graciously serves us with His word, sacraments, and the forgiveness of sins. Together as God's family we love one another. We are brothers and sisters in Christ. We speak, listen, laugh, cry, pray, sing and study together. We encourage and build one another up. We befriend, comfort and help one another.

We are the Church to teach, learn, and grow together in Christ. We teach God's Word to one another through sermons, Bible reading and study, and Sunday School and Preschool classes, growing together as disciples of Jesus.

We are the Church together to serve God. We use the time, talents and treasures God has entrusted us to serve Him and benefit others. Members of Cross of Christ serve God and His people as teachers, helpers, greeters, ushers, acolytes, altar workers, nursery workers, youth counselors, officers, committee members, and choir members.

We are the Church together to live to the glory of God and the good of our congregation, community, and world. Together we joyfully await the glorious second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, the resurrection of our bodies, and eternal life in heaven.

God has truly blessed us with a faithful, gifted and loving group of disciples at Cross of Christ Lutheran Church.

Pastor's Message

Pastor Terry A. Nelson

Pastor Terry A. Nelson

Our loving God has called us together as His people in the South Lyon area. God has graciously accepted us into His family through the Gospel of Christ crucified and resurrected and by the sacrament of Holy Baptism. God has brought us out of the darkness of sin and selfishness into the marvelous light of His forgiveness and love.

We are God's creation, created in Christ to do good works. God has saved us from our sins and hell through the life, death on the cross, and resurrection of His son Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit has called us to faith through the gospel and baptism, enlightened us with His gifts, made us holy, and kept us in the true faith. God has named us together to be His Church in the South Lyon community. I welcome you to visit and join our family of God.
