OUR HISTORY

SMALL BEGINNINGS

 

 

 

 

 

Lutheran missionaries began serving settlers in the Yoakum area about 1888. The Rev. Cornelius Ziesmer and about ten families organized Holy Cross Lutheran Church on January 27, 1891. There were many locations and sanctuaries prior to the current location which was built 1951-52. Holy Cross Lutheran Church continues to be an integral part of the Yoakum community, still counting among its members descendants of its founding families.
