There will be a pancake supper fundraiser at Holy Cross Lutheran (1998 Lansing Avenue, Salem, OR). Proceeds will go to help CGSLC and Holy Cross Lutheran youth go on a summer service-mission trip to Idaho during summer of 2017. We would love to have you join us if you are available.

Come and Worship

We would love to have you be a part of our worshipping community. Come as you are.

Usual Schedule

We have two worship services on most Sundays:
8:45 More Contemporary
11:00 More Traditional

Our worship services include communion. All who wish to partake of the body and blood of Jesus are welcome to do so.

Seasonal Emphasis


Epiphany is a season of the church year that focuses on God being revealed. The name comes from a great word that literally means "to shine upon" and figuratively has the sense of a revealing spotlight. The season begins with the "Baptism of our Lord" Sunday on January 8 and ends with "Transfiguration" Sunday on February 26.

We hope you will come join us for worship as we experience God being revealed through Word and Sacrament. You are welcome to come just as you are.

Monthly Joint Potluck
March 5

One of the clear messages that came out of our many 1-to-1 conversations with folks is the desire to have some worship services with the entire community. To that end, the church council has decided that the first Sunday of the month will be a joint worship service at 10:00.

In order to have even more time for interaction and community building there will be a potluck following the service. Please plan to stay for a meal after worship. If you forget your dish to pass please come anyway. There is always enough food to go around--remember the loaves and the fishes.
