About Holy Cross

Welcome to Holy Cross Lutheran Church,  a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA),  located in Wheat Ridge, CO. Thank you for visiting!

Almost 800 members strong, we are teachers and students, executives and secretaries, merchants and laborers, doctors and nurses, lawyers and homemakers, children and retired folk, and everything in between—called together through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

In Christ's love, we are called into being and we are gathered into his body—this community—for the world. In love, we extend to you our heartfelt invitation to join us in worship, in witness, and in our life together. To Know Christ and Share God’s Love is our Mission and we always have room for you and your family. We invite you to come and share it with us!

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Ron Bock has served as the Senior Pastor of Holy Cross since 2010. He received degrees in Visual Arts from the University of North Dakota in 1979, and a Master of Divinity degree from Luther Northwestern Theological Seminary in 1984. Prior to receiving the call to Holy Cross, he served congregations in Jamestown, ND, Canon City, CO, and Fargo, ND. He is tall, moderately good-looking, and obviously has a great sense of humor.  (Just kidding!)

He and his wife Nancy live in Arvada, where they can be found taking walks around Lake Arbor, reading and relaxing. Pastor Ron also looks forward to the time when he has more time to paint…and fish. They have three grown children of whom they are very proud; but no grandchildren…yet!

You can hear one of my recent sermons here!

Scott Moore – Director of Ministry and Mission

Scott began his ministry at Holy Cross on November 2, 1997 as a part time youth director.  His ministry has evolved over the years into a fulltime program director splitting time and focus between the mission ministries and youth & family ministries of the church.  After twenty years working in youth ministry, Scott now serves as the Director of Ministry & Mission. The Ministry and Mission portfolio includes the areas of Communication, Mission, Community Outreach, Young Adult Ministry, and supervision of the Youth and Family Program. Scott also volunteers as the Lead Chaplain of the Wheat Ridge Police Department.  Scott’s passions in ministry are building relationships with members of the church community and those in the local community alike, and finding creative ways for the people of Holy Cross to reach out and serve in their communities. 

Scott married his wife April in July of 2003.  Scott and April love to travel, hike, take photographs, work on home projects, and spend time outdoors together.  Whenever they have a chance, they also love to spend time with their 8 nieces and nephews. 


Director of Education

I was born and raised in Ohio, daughter to a Lutheran pastor. I attended Capital University and got my BA in Elementary Education and also met my husband, Martin. We moved to Colorado in '91 and I taught until my two kids were born. I got my MA while Grace and Will were small and worked as a substitute teacher. I started working at Holy Cross in '10 as the Director of Education. My main areas are Sunday School for children from preschool through elementary, confirmation, adult education, and vacation bible school. I love that moment when, and it happens frequently, the most profound theological thoughts comes from the mouths of our youngest members.  

I also sing in the Sonrise Singers and attend Faith Circle. If I'm not at church or just being a mom, I'm at the gym, reading, gardening, or doing puzzles. I'm a mountain bike fan, more than a rider.
