Worship at Calvary Lutheran

We gather weekly as people of God, called by the Holy Spirit, to hear God’s word in scripture reading, message and song. All who believe are welcome to receive the Lord’s Supper.


Children are welcome and encouraged to attend worship and are invited to come forward for the Children’s Message. Activity bags and resources are available for kids to use during worship, they can be found at the KIDS Connect table in the Narthex. Childcare is available during service for children birth-5 years in our staffed Nursery.

Join us for coffee and fellowship between services
every Sunday in the Fellowship Hall.

Calvary Lutheran Church Worship Guidelines (6/24/2020)

The Calvary Church Council has approved a plan for in-person worship, outdoor worship services and outdoor youth worship services.
Outdoor Worship Services will be held on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month for the remainder of the summer (weather permitting). Please check Calvary’s Facebook page and website for updates.

The worship core, executive committee, and church council will continue to review the CDC and MDH guidelines to determine a time for our first indoor worship service.


Your church leadership asks for your patience during this process.  
Feel free to call the office, 218-732-7284, if you have any questions.
