New to Calvary?

“Show the love of God to everyone.”
Luke 14:12-14


We welcome you in the name of Jesus!

Calvary Lutheran Church and School lives under the cross of Christ. From the five crosses that hang in the heart of Calvary’s sanctuary, to those found on the walls of our Christian Day School, our members, students, families, and staff are constantly reminded of the good news that we are saved by Jesus’ death and resurrection, because He loves us.

It is a blessing to live each day under the cross of Christ. We pray that here you are empowered by God to share this Good News of Jesus Christ at home, church, school and around the world.
