Mission Statement
Together in Christ, we celebrate God's love, grace and forgiveness through worship and service. With God's guidance we faithfully teach and learn, love and share, and care for each other, our community and the world.
Lutheran Church of the Cross is a congregation which embraces the gifts and diversity that people bring to serve God. Lutheran Church of the Cross is a Reconciling in Christ congregation, welcoming all people regardless of race or color, economic status, sexual orientation, physical challenge or age.
Our Pastor

In 2008, Lutheran Church of the Cross extended a call to interim minister Elaina Salmon. She accepted the call and began serving as pastor of LCC on January 1, 2009. Pastor Elaina Salmon is a December 2007 graduate of the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago and has recently moved to Muncie with her family, as her husband attends Ball State University.

On February 14, 2009, family, friends from the community, Bishop Stuck and congregational members celebrated with Elaina as she was ordained at Lutheran Church of the Cross. We welcome her to our congregation and look forward to continued growth as we journey together in faith.

History -- Past

Lutheran Church of the Cross
Lutheran Church of the Cross was established in 1966 as a mission congregation of the American Lutheran Church. Growth in membership and financial stability allowed the congregation to end its mission status in 1979 and allowed extensive expansion and renovation in 1989.
..........and Present
Lutheran Church of the Cross emphasizes a strong worship experience with weekly communion and regularly makes use of a talented choir and individual musicians. Sunday School is offered for ages three through adult. Additionally, classes are provided for new members, first communion, catechism instruction and other topical book and biblical studies.

Members and visitors at Lutheran Church of the Cross are welcomed with flowers during the summer months. An outdoor bench provides a relaxing spot for meditation or contemplation.

In 2005, the Pavilion Project was initiated by four Ball State University architecture students. Their design and energetic build resulted in this Pavilion that now sits behind the church. The Pavilion is used by church members and the community for special events and outdoor worship.

* Kids Hope USA, partnered with Northview Elementary School
