Welcome to Calvary Lutheran Church!
At Calvary Lutheran Church, we seek to welcome people from all walks of life as we worship, learn, serve and grow in faith together. We grow most fully through Jesus who walks with us and through one another as we each bring our own experiences, stories, and questions. We encourage you to bring your questions, too!
We don’t have all the answers to questions about God and faith, but perhaps we can answer some of your possible questions about Calvary:
What if I’m not Lutheran/haven’t been to church in a while/not sure where I stand on faith?
That’s OK! You don’t have to have it all figured out before you come. We are figuring out together how to follow Jesus in ways that are authentic to each of us. Some members of Calvary care for elder parents, others are available to youth as mentors, but all of us are walking with Him together. We can’t do this faith thing alone. Come and walk with us.

What is worship like?
Our Sunday morning worship is joyful and relaxed. You will see people leave their seats and pass the greeting of peace in the aisle. You will see single folk worshiping together alongside three generations of families. We hope you see that you are welcome here. Please visit our worship page to learn more about worship at Calvary.
Are Children Welcome in Worship?
Yes absolutely! We believe that God created children with their wiggle and giggles and all! We encourage families to worship together, sing together and follow the readings together. Children learn best through participating. If anyone needs a break from worship, feel free to step out into the hall or spend a little time in the play room.
How do I find you?
We are located in Northern New Jersey, 30 miles from New York City, nestled in the Borough of Allendale at 165 W. Crescent Ave. Many locals know us as the church across from Savini (Restaurant). Click here for a map.
Is Calvary wheelchair accessible?
Yes! We are fully accessible to wheelchairs through our front door near the offices and throughout the entire building.
What if my community group is looking for a place to meet?
Calvary is home to many community groups from Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, to Hope and Healing After an Addiction Death, and many more. Please contact us if you are interested in meeting at Calvary.
