Worship

Calvary Lutheran Church is currently open for in-person worship every Sunday (during the summer) at 9:30am. We also live-stream our services on our Facebook page here

 

Pattern of Worship

Gathering: The Holy Spirit calls us together as the people of God

Word: God speaks to us in scripture reading, preaching, and song

Meal: God feeds us with the presence of Jesus Christ

Sending: God blesses us and sends us in mission to the world

Monthly Open Table:  We will have Communion & Coffee Hour every 1st Sunday of the month.

At Calvary we welcome all people regardless of their denomination to receive communion. We celebrate communion often because we need it. We need the gift of grace that God pours out to us through Jesus. We need forgiveness that is promised in the new covenant of Christ’s blood. Holy Communion is always by invitation and never demanded. At the Lord’s Table, we are fed and nourished, in order to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world. Come taste and see that the Lord is good.

Style of Worship

Our worship is casual and liturgical. Casual in the sense of our demeanor and openness to one another and liturgical in the pattern and flow of the worship service. Following the pattern above and the order of service in the first or second setting in the Lutheran Book of Worship (the green book), we worship God together and lift our voices to sing favorite hymns accompanied by organ or piano.  Every Last Sunday of the month, we have "Informal Worship"!

Children are Welcome

At Calvary Lutheran Church, we encourage parents to bring their children to church. Families with children are welcome to sit closer to the front of the church so their children can see what happens during worship.  Sunday School for Preschoolers-6th grade at 10:30 a.m. most Sundays! We will have Sunday School for children, Preschool-2nd grade @ 9:30 a.m. during these days during the summer: 7/10/22, 7/24/22, 7/31/22, 8/7/22, 8/14/22, 8/21/22.

What to Wear

Come in clothes in which you are comfortable worshiping. If you are comfortable worshiping in a three piece suit, wear it! If you are comfortable wearing your jeans, wear them! Youth often wear their sport uniforms so they can worship and make it to the game on time. You are welcome to come as you are.
