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.

Yet I must admit that my tendency is to lean on the law side of my parenting approach. The encouragement that I have received, and try to pass on to others, is not to neglect the importance of the gospel. The pure understanding that I am forgiven, a saint, a new creation through the work of Christ is what sets my heart looking for ways to demonstrate my love for God—not because I have to, should, or must, but because I can’t help but look for opportunities to be thankful. This is our treasure! Don’t leave it to a chance understanding for your kids. Live in joy with your children and be intentional in sharing the gospel with them so they too can be motivated by Christ’s love.  from WELS member Dan Nommensen and his wife, Kelly who have a teenage daughter and son.
