 Celebrate Grace, Grow In Faith and Make a Difference For God

Prayers Answered

Fall is definitely in the air! The days and nights are getting cooler, the leaves are already starting to change colors, the days are getting shorter! Wonderful changes are happening here at Holy Cross, too! On September 17th, we will finally "Meet and Greet" Pastor Noah and his family!

The Congregation Officers would again like to thank those responsible for getting us to this point. This would include the Transition Team, Call Committee, Pastor Loren and you the members of our congregation. We thank all of you for your patience dedication, commitment, time and most important, your prayers and faith that God would lead us to the right person who would be the next pastor to lead us into the future of Holy Cross.

From all of us: Pastor Noah, Abby, Sylvie and Esme... .
Welcome to Holy Cross!!!

Pr. Noah’s passions are varied, from spiritual counseling, specifically grief counseling, to creating a weekly sacred space for community to gather, support, and encourage. 

Originally from Osceola, WI, Noah is a graduate from Gustavus Adolphus College and Luther Seminary.  Noah’s first call as pastor was to Salem Lutheran Church in Mahtowa, MN.  After seven years, Noah and his family moved to Nashville, TN for his wife’s Abby’s pediatric dental residency with New York University- Lutheran.  It is in Nashville that Noah served as a chaplain resident at St. Thomas West Hospital specializing in palliative care. 

Noah will continue to progress his passion for writing and his enthusiasm for community as Holy Cross Lutheran’s next pastor.  In his spare time, Noah spends his time with his two daughters Sylvie and Esme, and his wife Abby.  The Johnsons enjoy reading together, Nordic skiing, mountain biking, singing around the piano, and traveling.
