Serving Opportunities

Altar Guild
Help is needed on the Altar Guild.
The purpose of the Altar Guild is to serve. Service requires a spiritual commitment and it has a spiritual goal.
We serve by doing the following:
  • Set up the paraments to coordinate with the times and seasons of the church year.
  • Clean and store the sacramental vessels and linens.
  • Change the Eternal Candle and check other candle heights.
  • Serve with four other members at communion services.
All this is done for the Glory of God and the building up of His people.
If you are interested in joining the Altar Guild, please contact Barb Thomason 732-9313.


Offering Counters 

The time involved is approximately 1-2 hours. The days vary depending on your schedule as well as the other counters.
If you are interested, please contact Julie
218-732-7284 or email: or stop in the church office.

Hospital Visitation Volunteers

Want to make a difference with a fellow member of Calvary who is hospitalized? It’s easy and rewarding…Just meet with the Hospital Chaplain for a brief interview and guidance. You will also have your picture taken and receive an ID badge that you will need to wear when visiting.
What’s involved? You will visit Calvary members hospitalized at St. Joseph’s Hospital on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It’s best to visit in the morning but any time is fine if it works best for you. On Sunday’s bring a few church bulletins to share with members.
Please call Dorothy Meyer 218-255-4853 or Renee Brauer 206-434-1950 for more information.
Thank you, Caring & Outreach 

Ushers Corner – Attention Ushers!

We have a 5th Sunday in June and that will rotate to Team #3. Please contact your go-to subs or myself if you cannot make that days duties. Please watch your mail boxes for updated usher lists. No one will be changed but we have had a few of us move on. The list has not been updated since 2017. If you know of any changes on the list please let me know.
Also, if you know of anyone looking to become an usher or a sub let me know via my church mailbox, via phone 732-5868, or email me at
