Calvary Lutheran Church celebrates Holy Communion every week with worship service at 10:45 am on Sunday mornings (9:30 am in the summer.) We follow a pattern of worship that has been used since the early ancient church and continues to guide our worship today. Please join us for worship, a time in which we gather together to praise God. Come and see, you are welcome 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
Weekly Open Table
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.
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.
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.
