Church History

Pastor E Wade Helmkamp, retired at the end of August 2017, after serving Holy Cross Lutheran Church since August 15, 1995. His last day for preaching was Sunday, July 30, 2017.  We currently have Interim Pastor Wray Offermann who prior to coming to us, retired from St Paul, Decatur, IL.  We are blessed to have Pastor Wray with us until we are able to find a man of God to come serve our church.  Pray that Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ sends us such a man!
