You are the light of the world, Jesus says to the disciples in the Sermon on the Mount. You are the light. Each of us, in our particular ways, bears forth the light of Christ into the community as we seek to live out our baptisms. Each of us uniquely reflects glimpses of the living God in the world. Our experiences of worship and the Eucharist nourish us to then go out into the world and to do the work that each of us is called by God to do. The Chapel of the Cross, this parish family, nurtures you on that journey such that you have the boldness, the fortitude, the courage to shine forth with God’s love in the world. You are the light.

-The Reverend Elizabeth Marie Melchionna

Chapel of the Cross Capital Campaign


People do not light a lamp and hide it away. You must share your light with everyone. That is how you glorify God.

We Need To Raise $3.5 million

Carefully Steward

We plan to carefully steward our resources to provide stability for the future. We must address outstanding debt and free annual funds to fund ongoing maintenance needs.

repair & renovate

We need to repair aging parts of the church’s physical infrastructure to care for the church that cares so well for us. In particular, our Kleuker pipe organ, the nave windows, the Yates wing restrooms, and chapel pews and flooring.

Enrich & Sustain

Enrich our capacity to establish and support new and creative programs that nurture our growth as disciples, that welcome and include all, and that share our faith with the community and world.

share the light

The Light On A Hill Campaign raised more than $7.9 million toward the $10 million cost of the new facilities, the chapel renovations, and other building upgrades.  We have the campus we need to move boldly and faithfully into the future.

But we cannot rest. We cannot dim our light. There is more to be done.
