serve your community

Season of Giving

You can bless those being served by two of our partner ministries (Mosaic and Kids Café) by choosing a gift tag from our connections board (in the atrium) to purchase a Christmas Gift.



Lutheran Church of the Cross has partnerships with many groups within our community and the greater Des Moines area.  Each of these organizations has specific volunteer service opportunites, and we invite you to connect with them for current options.
