“So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teacher, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” Ephesians 4:11-13 Cross Lutheran Church is a mission-driven Lutheran church located in Yorkville, Illinois. We offer a safe place where people of all upbringings and identities can nourish their faith. We welcome you to join us as you strengthen your faith in Christ. No matter where you are in your discipleship, we truly consider it a blessing to be a part of your spiritual journey. Our congregation is dedicated to showing our love for our Lord through acts of service, which has played a vital part in our parish since our founding in 1881. For over a century, our parish community has been home to a diverse group of people, united in their love of the Lord and their desire to put this love into practice by serving others. The church now has 1,153 people committed to discipleship and spreading God’s Word. We believe a committed Disciple of Jesus at Cross will love our neighbors, walk with God, and grow in faith together. We affirm that each day is an opportunity to spread the message of God’s work releveled in Christ and the Holy Spirit to our community.
