Welcome Message from Pastor Paul Lantz


The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3: 22-23


From the founding in 1961 of this mission church on the South Shore, Lutheran Church of the Cross has been a place where people of all ages and backgrounds have come together to receive the love of God. As the “new guy on the block” (arriving in June 2014), it brings me great happiness to say that our family has found a new faith home with all the wonderful families of this church! God’s mercy and love truly is new every morning.


As a new chapter in the history of the congregation is being written, God is bringing together a marvelous mix of families that have been here for many years with others that are only beginning to experience the blessings of this church. My family is just one of a wave of new families that are coming here and “learning and living in the unconditional love of Jesus Christ.”


The purpose of this website is to help us continue to get to know each other better. It also serves as a way to keep up to date with all the activities of the church and the individuals that make things happen. Thank you for taking time to read this welcome message. My sincere hope and prayer is that your life will be richly blessed to be part of the family of God here at 77 Rockland St!


Christ’s peace,

Pastor Paul Lantz
