Holy Cross History

Celebrating Our First 55 Years in Ministry, 1959-2014!

Over a half century ago, a small group of Lutherans gathered to worship God in the basement of Davis Brothers Cafeteria (known today as The Grill) in downtown Athens. From such humble beginnings, God has blessed Holy Cross Lutheran Church so that it could become a vibrant and growing congregation, working every day to share the love and compassion of Christ in the Athens community.
