Welcome to Holy Cross Church!

Holy Cross Lutheran Church has been deeply rooted in the Madison community for over 90 years, and it is the foundation for our grade school, our early learning center and the other ministries we offer.

The reason we exist it to teach about Jesus and His love for all people. That is The Holy Cross Way! Our prayer for those we minister to is that they come to know Jesus, share Him with others, and let His light shine through their lives.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our church and the various ministries we offer. Join us for a worship service or call 608-249-3101 for more information. We look forward to meeting you soon!

Worship Times: Sunday at 8:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. and Mondays at 6:30 p.m.

Description of the blog

Prayer for Lent Lord Jesus, our sacrificial Passover Lamb, graciously accept our imperfect praise for the perfect sacrifice you made for our sins. You suffered all so that we might inherit every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms. As we follow you in spirit to Calvary, help us gladly bear whatever cross of suffering you choose to lay on us in this life. Constantly remind us of the cross you bore for our salvation. Let our crosses in life serve to remind us of our need for the great sacrifice you offered on Calvary for us and for all. Amen. (taken from Seasonal Prayer for Lent from Meditations)
