It is no longer necessary to register for Sunday services – members and guests are asked to just come. We are all still wearing masks (unless for specific reasons you are unable to) and practicing social distancing.  Please do not come to church if you have a fever or other flu-like symptoms, or if you have been around someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.   The sanctuary will be cleaned after every service. 

Sunday School and Saturday evening worship are still suspended until we can streamline the process of reestablishing how we move forward.    

Our address is 20805 Middlebelt Road, Farmington Hills, MI 48336 – this is the northwest corner of Eight Mile and Middlebelt Roads. Our phone number is 248/474-0675. We have been serving the Lord in the same location since 1892.

We are a confessional church of the Missouri Synod. That means that we believe, teach, and confess, along with our sister congregations of the Missouri Synod that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, and that the Unaltered Augsburg Confession is a true exposition of that Word.

In a changing world it is important to hold to God’s unchanging Word. Many things around us can change, drawn quickly and erased by the hand of culture and fashion. One thing that will never change is God’s Word. It continues as a constant. God’s Word can be leaned upon and relied on in this world made of shifting sand. We gather together as God’s family around this true Word and God’s Sacraments. It is the rock on which Shadow of the Cross is built on.

Join us as we hear and are strengthened by God’s unchanging Word in Divine Service.

The church staff works Mondays through Fridays, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
