Worship & Music

Calvary’s Worship Core consists of members dedicated to enriching lives and spreading the gospel through Word, Music and Fellowship. Our mission is to plan and lead meaningful experiences in worship and know God’s presence, as well as, reach out to others, and together experience a connection with God that we might all grow in faith and service to God.

Worship Teams


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 218-732-9313.)
