Statement of Purpose
The mission of Lutheran Church of the Cross is to gather souls for Christ with a Christ-centered, Bible-based, spiritually-motivated congregation that utilizes the time, talents, and treasures of its members to reach out to the community to offer caring fellowship to all individuals.
We invite you to share in God's blessings and fellowship and in the many activities of our parish whether you are a winter resident, full-time resident, or just visiting for a short period.
We are a member of The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod LCMS.
Located in Southwest Florida just off Interstate I75 in the Port Charlotte / Punta Gorda - Deep Creek area (map).
