Starting with a single service and about 35 people in the fall of 2004, CrossWalk has grown to three services on two campuses with nearly 500 people worshipping each Sunday. The core of CrossWalk's vision is to be a "place where people come to know the grace of God, strive to live new, and to share the love of Jesus."
It's for this reason that on Sunday mornings we provide worship in "a casual atmosphere." At the same time, at CrossWalk we're definitely "serious about faith." The Bible's message is unchanging, and it speaks to the true needs of today's people.
CrossWalk is a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). The WELS, established in 1850, is a Biblically-conservative church body with a passion for children and outreach. With more than 1,200 congregations and 400,000 church members, the WELS is the third largest Lutheran church in the U.S. The WELS' passion for children and outreach has given it a strong history in education and missions. The church body's congregations support 370 elementary schools, 313 early education programs and 23 high schools, as well as more than 100 missionaries and more than 200 national workers sharing the gospel worldwide.
