Continued fundraising efforts are underway. All proceeds from these fundraisers will be used for tools and supplies to assist our Mission Partner, San Pedro Lutheran Church (in Toa Baja, Puerto Rico) in their rebuilding efforts. Donate to the cause.

Worship with Us on Facebook!

Did you know that Calvary Lutheran Church streams our worship services on Facebook? Every Sunday, at least one of our services is typically live streamed on Facebook. If you are away from Park Rapids, home sick, or snowed in, this is a great way for you to join us! Did you know that we have been routinely reaching 100+ views EVERY WEEK on Facebook? This is a great milestone for this simple but important ministry. Please help spread the word and let everyone know that Calvary Worship is on Facebook!

Arts Advisory Group

The Calvary Arts Advisory Group has enjoyed being able to display art throughout the church of beautiful paintings and photographs that have been either created by or loaned by members of Calvary to share with the congregation. What a lot of talent we have, and we know there must be even more! The Arts Advisory Group (AAG) is looking for more art pieces that would reflect a season of the year or a season of the church. If anyone in the congregation has any art that they would like the AAG to consider displaying, please email Steve Maanum at with a picture of your piece or pieces along with the finished size. We look forward to viewing all your suggestions!
Along with sharing and displaying art, the AAG is responsible for decorating at Advent, Easter, fall, and the overall decor of the church. This past year we did not receive as much financial help as we needed, and as a result we are about $1,500 short for the year. Please consider donating money to be put towards the flowers, greenery, and decorations needed to enhance our worship experience. If you have a monetary memorial or honorarium you would like to give, AAG would also appreciate funds to be used to purchase some art. Donation forms will be in the monthly newsletter and weekly bulletins during the Lent and Advent season, but donations are welcome anytime.
AAG is also looking for more people to help us with this fun and important undertaking. It is a joy to share the talents and donations of our members. We meet about every other month and appreciate members sharing their valuable time. Please call Rhonda Lageson at 218-252-7139 if you would like to join or have any questions.
Next time you are at Calvary, please walk around and enjoy the current featured art pieces and read the display card as to whom the piece was created by or donated by and the title of the picture.
Thank you and enjoy the art and decorations!
