Welcome to Cross of Glory, neighbors! We're glad you're here. 

"Jesus Christ took on flesh and blood and moved into the neighborhood." -John 1:14 (MSG)

Welcome to Cross of Glory, where we believe that Jesus is alive and indeed, lives right here in our neighborhood in Brooklyn Center, MN! As part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), Cross of Glory is a faith community that welcomes all to experience God's love that is freely and abundantly given to all people, and to share God's gift of life together across all our varied backgrounds and beliefs. Sharing life together means we worship together, break bread together, pray with and for one another, wonder and ask questions together, and work together for justice and peace in our local community and our world. We give God thanks for the 65 years of ministry we've already shared, and we continue to be open to new ways of being the church as we seek to be guided by God's ever-moving Spirit. We welcome YOU and invite you to join us as we witness and share the love of God that's alive in our neighborhood!


Welcoming all people to become devoted followers of Jesus Christ.


God has called this congregation to welcome, celebrate, grow and serve. While Cross of Glory's mission has remained the same for over a half-century, the ways we live out that call continually undergo prayerful reflection. With eyes set to the future, grounded in the Great Commission, and blessed with the resources of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, we seek to be a welcoming and vibrant faith community where all people experience the love of Jesus Christ in worship, fellowship, and other trusted relationships, and where all are equipped to serve as ministers in the church and participants in God's work in our homes, our local community, and beyond.
