Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does Mount Cross have a confirmation program?

    At Mount Cross we do have a confirmation program. We call it A, B, Not C, which stands for “Affirmation of Baptism, not confirmation”. It is a program spanning 7th, 8th, and 9th grades during which students are given an opportunity to explore who God is in their lives and are prepared to affirm the promises that were made to them in the waters of baptism.

  • Does Mount Cross serve their local community?

    At Mount Cross we are committed to transforming the world locally and globally. Through our partnerships with local groups such as Families Unlimited and The Family Housing Network and globally through groups like Lutheran World relief, we seek to enable all people to not only survive, but to begin to thrive.

  • What does “Lutheran” mean?

    “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is a gift of God” Ephesians 2:8 This is the heart of what it means to be Lutheran. We believe that God's grace, which is God's undeserved and unmerited love, is a gift that God freely gives to all through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Through God's gift of grace, we are set free from trying to save ourselves, so that we can be set free to generously love and serve our neighbors. Centered around the word and sacraments of baptism and holy communion, we are filled by God's Holy Spirit, to live out this faith filled life.

  • Does Mount Cross have a VBS program this summer?

    We do not currently have plans to host a VBS program in 2020. However, if you'd like to get involved with planning or executing a VBS program during 2020 or 2021 at Mount Cross, please contact the church office at office@mountcrosslutheran.org.

  • Does Mount Cross have opportunities for families?

    Yes we do! Families are a vital part of the Mount Cross community and are welcome at all events. We also have special events catered specifically to families of all shapes and sizes. These include movie nights, board game afternoons, and opportunities to learn together as a family.

  • What are youth events like at Mount Cross?

    For youth of all ages, Mount Cross hosts a variety of monthly events. Some of our past events have included Nerf Night, bowling, rock climbing, going to the movies, family board game nights, and serving at the local food bank. We also participate in synod wide retreats and gatherings to grow our faith alongside other local Lutheran youth.

    Every summer, Mount Cross supports the High School youth on a mission trip. In 2020 we are partnering with Pilgrim Lutheran Church in Puyallup for a trip full of meaningful service, faith development, and leadership opportunities.
