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.

Dear Friends in Christ,

This Sunday is the twenty-second Sunday since the beginning of Covid-19 restrictions.  Life may well be more uncertain and upside down than ever especially with the beginning of the school year.  Please pray earnestly for the students, their parents, the teachers, the school administrators, and the children and staff of our Holy Cross Children’s Center.  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...

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.
