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!
