Church of the Cross is now the proud owner of 10 translating devices! Rosangela Lantz is our Portuguese translator during worship!

Many new families coming to Lutheran Church of the Cross speak Portuguese. Pastor Lantz served as a missionary in Brazil for five and half years. He also graduated from the Lutheran Seminary in Brazil. His wife, Rosângela, is Brazilian. The Lantz family followed God’s leading to come to a location in the United States that has a significant number of Portuguese speakers.

Pastor Lantz serves on the New England District Mission Board for Portuguese Language Ministry. Pastor and Rosângela coordinate a number of fellowship events to help Portuguese speakers feel at home and become involved in the life of the church. Scripture readings are translated and plans are to provide equipment for live translation of the worship service. Bible studies and worship services in Portuguese are other goals for this church year.
