The Elevation of Holy Cross Church is a historic Russian Orthodox church in South Naknek, Alaska. It is a small building, roughly similar in size to the 1886 St. John the Baptist Chapel in Naknek, prior to its 1914 enlargement. Near the vestibule is a rack containing two medium-sized bells, which are rung from within the building by lanyards. The building resembles a schoolhouse, except for its modest exterior religious symbols.[2][3]

The church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
