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!

Pastoral Call News On Sunday, November 20, the Holy Cross Voters extended a Call to Rev. Matthew Moldstad to serve as our Associate Pastor.  Currently, Pastor Moldstad serves as co-pastor at Peace Lutheran Church in Mankato, Minnesota.  He has served at Peace Lutheran for 5 years.  Prior to that he served at Peace Lutheran in Kissimmee, Florida for 5 years.  Please keep Pastor Moldstad, his wife, Joni and their 5 sons, as well as Holy Cross and Peace Lutheran in your prayers as he deliberates where best to serve.  We trust that the Holy Spirit will guide Pastor Moldstad in his decision process as he determines where he can best serve Jesus' blood-bought lambs and sheep.   If you would like to reach out to him and let him know you're praying for him, his email is:  pastormoldstad@gmail.com
