Congregational Life & Other Activities

Financial Peace University


Registration Open!

No more money fights! With Financial Peace University (FPU), you and your spouse will learn how to create (and stick to) a budget, save for emergencies, and make a plan for the future. Doesn’t that sound peaceful?

If you’re interested in learning how you look at debt and money, we are offering FPU just for you! Join us at Cross of Christ Lutheran Church as we offer FPU to the community. Invite your friends, family, neighbors! The nine (9) week class will start Sunday, September 29th from 3-5 pm.

The class cost has been discounted to only $93.00 (normal cost is $130) and as a special incentive, those who attend every class will be issued a full rebate at the conclusion of the classes. (There will be makeup classes offered, if needed.) Due to construction going on in our building, we will not be able to offer childcare.

Contact Lorilynn Baier (877-7447) or email... to register. Deadline for registration is noon on Monday, September 23rd.

Bibles and Brews

This young adult Bible study is a time of food, drink, fellowship, and God's Word. We meet on Thursday nights at 7pm at The Terminal Brewhouse downtown or Mike’s Tavern in Hixson. Come study the Bible and have a beer or burger! Or both! Contact Nyssa Hunt at for more information, or join our Facebook group for updates ( ! 

Wine, Women & The Word

This fellowship group is for any women in the church. We get together to talk, laugh, and drink wine in good Christian community. Find meeting details on the Cross of Christ Lutheran Church Facebook page or contact Sylvia Hildebrandt at for more information. 

"Cross of Christ Reads!" Book Club

If you like to read, Cross of Christ Reads! Book Club meets once a month for an evening of fellowship and discussion over that month's literary selection. Any questions, contact Sylvia Hildebrandt at Come one, come all!                     

The Birthday Club

The Ladies Birthday Club meets bimonthly to celebrate the women whose birthdays fall within the chosen two months. Please check out the monthly newsletter for date and location information.

NOTE: The men of the church meet for lunch simultaneous to the women's party, for food and fellowship.

 School Snack Packs

In partnership with a number of area churches, Cross of Christ helps provide healthy snacks for the children of Rivermont Elementary School. Our church is responsible for packing these bags four times a year. Volunteers are needed and greatly appreciated! Check the monthly newsletter for dates.



The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League is the women’s auxiliary of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. We act out our faith through local ministerial projects and the gathering of “mites” - small change that we collect, which over the years has totaled to millions of dollars to support mission projects all over the world.

Locally, the Cross of Christ LWML chapter meets for quilting every Tuesday, 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM. These quilts are sent around the world in the wake of natural disasters and other great needs.

Any woman in the church is also invited to join quarterly meetings of the chapter. Check the monthly newsletter for details.

Be sure to check out the most recent edition of Crossties, our Church newsletter, for the most complete gathering of all the activities coming up in the life of the Church!
