Welcome to Lutheran Church of the Cross and Day School

Imagine a church where you can check out Christianity and find answers to your spiritual questions.  LCC is an active church and school community.  We work together to share the Good News of the saving grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  We hold Bible study every Sunday before worship service.  On Wednesdays we have CrossTraining which includes a weekly vespers service followed by Bible study.  We also have many active ministries lifting spirits within the church and out in the community.

At LCC all are welcome to participate in the full worship experience regardless of faith background.  If you live nearby or are planning to visit the Saint Petersburg area, we would love to have you be our guest!  Visit our school website to see what’s happening at LCC Day School.


Join us Palm Sunday on our “Donkey Walk”: a walk around the neighborhood with palms to celebrate Jesus’ entry to Jerusalem.  The Passion Play is featured during worship and includes song, communion and a live re-enactment (family-friendly) of the events of Holy Week.

Maundy Thursday includes Handwashing, celebration of First Communion, music from the Choir and Bell Choir and Stripping of the Altar, in preparation for Good Friday services.

Good Friday noon is a service of hymns and readings. Good Friday 7 pm is a Tenebrae-style service with scripture and a variety of beautiful music from our Choir, soloists and cello.

Join us at 7 am, outdoors on the front lawn, for casual-yet-festive Easter Worship with communion.

8:00 and 9:30 services include all the bells and whistles: processional, music from our kids, adult choir and bell choir, communion and children’s sermon.

Before or after worship, visit the fellowship hall for Easter breakfast provided by the Youth Group.  Donations benefit youth summer camps and other youth activities.
