A congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
Celebrating the life of our church
History
Founded in 1980, the church’s charter members met at a local grade school. The congregation became self sustaining within one year, and on Palm Sunday 1985, the church family moved into its current facility on 7.8 acres in Libertyville, a location equidistant from the downtown areas of Chicago and Milwaukee. In 1987, the church installed its pipe organ, and the organ continues to contribute significantly to the musical spirit of Holy Cross.

In the fall of 1995, Holy Cross completed a successful building expansion which added much needed educational meeting space. In 2001, Holy Cross completed construction of a new sanctuary to accommodate the worship experience of our growing membership and in 2006 a "west wing" addition was completed to accommodate an expanded ministry of full time childcare. Today, Holy Cross continues to expand its ministries to the community and to its growing congregational membership.
