A diamond has many facets – and so do the 75 years of Holy Cross Lutheran Church. From the beginning of the church as a mission congregation to today, we have shone in the West Park area. Beginning with services in Huntley Hardware, moving on to a building that was once West Park Animal Hospital and then to our current location on Rocky River Drive, complete with a school, pre-school and extra classroom space in a modular unit. We have been blessed with pastors and leaders who have led us to use our resources to spread the Word.
The first 25 years: 1944-1969
Holy Cross began as a mission congregation of Unity Lutheran Church in December,1944. The current sanctuary was built in 1958. We added the Educational-Fellowship Hall, in 1964. The Holy Cross annex, now the pre-school began as a parsonage. Pastor McRee, Pastor Majoros, Pastor Dechow, and Pastor Pelikan lived there during their respective pastorates at Holy Cross. For several years the parsonage was used as a Group Home residence for Bethesda
The second 25 years: 1969-1994
During these years Holy Cross became one of four congregations who started West Park Lutheran School. Paul Hink was the first principal followed by Glenn Kloha, Nancy Clark, and now Reverend Michael Scheer.
These last 25 years: 1994-2019
West Park Lutheran School is now Holy Cross Lutheran School and has added additional classrooms in the form of a modular unit at the back of the E-F Hall. Another facet of the church was added in the form of the Heavenly Harvest Food Pantry. Food is distributed to those in need on the first Saturday of each month. Currently we are serving up to 50 families per month.
The Next 25 years: 2019-2044
