Our Cross

In 1982, Grace of God Lutheran Church raised a giant cross at the church's location in Dix Hills, Long Island, NY, and lit it up. The cross has become a recognized landmark: millions of commuters on the Long Island Expressway see the cross day and night. 

The cross stands 24 feet high and weighs 800 pounds.  It was listed in Ripley's Believe It or Not as the largest cross made of utility light poles. In 2018 we strung new LED lights on it to ensure it will be lit for years to come.
