As a fellowship of believers, it is our mission to joyfully proclaim the gospel of Christ in word and deed, inviting people to worship together, nurturing them in the Christian faith, loving one another, and serving a world in need. We invite you to visit us.


Sunday School Time Change

Due to the current space limitations, Sunday School will be held during the worship service.  Children will excused from the worship service after the children's sermon.  Students will be done at approximately 10:45.


On Communion Sundays, the children will be taken back to the worship service for Communion or a blessing.


It is anticipated that the time change will last until the end of 2014.  Please watch the Parish Visitor for changes to the ending date.

You can contact Diane Larson (h: 507-896-3272, c: 608-576-9129, email: with any questions.

Pastor Lane speaking….


My sabbatical is almost over at this point. Thank you again for allowing me this time off. I feel refreshed and ready to go. I am looking forward to getting back.

In Grade school one of the first assignments was to write an essay on ‘What did I do on my summer vacation?’ My essay will be “What did I do on my sabbatical? On Oct 2nd I will meet with the synod sabbatical committee to discuss this.

I had a wonderful canoe trip with my brothers-in-law in July. August, I did some projects around the farm, state fair, and the beginning of water problems for the farmhouse. We weren’t able to go to Germany due to Mary’s mother’s death. But the airline has given us credit for the tickets. So whenever we can arrange our schedules we will go to Germany, probably next summer.

I will be back on Oct 1.  It will be exciting to begin confirmation, youth programming, visits, worship and many more things with you again.

In Christ

Pastor Lane

Confirmation Begins…


We will have an organizational meeting of all 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students and parents on Wednesday, October 8th at 6:30 for the 2014-2015 year.  There will be some changes to the program this year that I think you will like. It will be very important that all of you be at this meeting.  There will also be a signup sheet for parents at the meeting. Some of the responsibilities for parents will be driving to events, chaperoning events and mentoring. I will explain these further at the meeting. Everyone will need to sign up for something.

Classes this year will be on Sunday mornings after church service, starting October 12th .




Cross of Christ has accepted the challenge to raise 8,000 lbs. of non-perishable food starting Oct. 1 through Nov. 1st.

All food collected will go to the Houston Food Shelf. Thrivent will do matching funds for those groups that meet this challenge.

Watch future bulletins for  further information on this worthwhile cause.
