A Church for the 21st Century:
Bishop John Shelby Spong described Holy Cross as:
"A Jewel in the frozen north!"
"...an incredible power emanates from this congregation. Most of the small Christian churches in the United States and Canada are discouraged. They feel impotent to impact the modern world. They are shackled with the vestiges of yesterday that find expression in scripture and liturgy. They feel like the mystical Sisyphus as they seek to roll the mighty stone uphill. I invite those churches to look at, correspond with, visit, get on the mailing list of Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Newmarket, Ontario. What I found there will energize my life for years."

We are a Progressive Christian Community - These are exciting times! Life in the 21st century is challenging us to "re-think" our traditional understandings of Christianity. New questions are revealing new insights and old ways of thinking are giving way to expansive revelations about what it means to follow the teachings of Jesus in this time and place. As a new Christianity emerges we are expanding our understanding as we continue to seek ways to be in releationship to God and to one another that embodies Christ's ways of peace through justice.
Holy Cross is a place where questions are welcome!!! Our questions drive us to a deeper understanding of the Spirit that lives and breathes in, with, and through us. Wisdom is something we treasure at Holy Cross and so we pursue Wisdom through worship, education and play.
