History:
Light of the Cross Lutheran Church met for the first time as a worshiping community on the First Sunday of Advent in 1996 at the present day Garrison City Hall.  In the fall of 1999, construction began on the current building and the first worship service was held here on Easter Sunday, April 23, 2000.  We are part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and one of five conferences in the Northeastern Minnesota Synod.  Our membership is approximately 250.
