About Calvary Lutheran

Our services are an expression of Christianity’s ancient traditions. The focus is on the Lord and His grace. Much of the service is simply the singing and speaking of Scripture – God’s Holy Word. Through its "responsive" dialogue format, the Pastor and people become involved together in a worship form which dates back to Old Testament time.


Through the sermon and songs, the powerful Truth of God’s never-failing love for even the unworthy is applied to our life and we, the forgiven, are empowered for praise-filled living. All of our life and worship begins and ends with Him!


Our doors are wide-open to people from all backgrounds, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey.


In addition to our Sunday morning church services, our members are involved in ministries that meet a wide range of needs, from Bible study to human care.


Our church is based on sound Christian Doctrine as confessed in the three Ecumenical Creeds.


God has richly blessed His people throughout the years, and we remain faithful even today. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, the people of Calvary worship and serve fully unto the Lord and reach out to others with grace and love, compassion and kindness, just as Christ bears and forgives each one of us.


We welcome you to attend our worship services, and Sunday School and Bible classes at Calvary.

Our kids are so happy at Calvary Lutheran School. The students, faculty and families are wonderful, and we feel very much at home. Calvary is a private school, but it's not at all pretentious, which we appreciate. Everyone is down to earth, hard working and kind. We love the diversity at Calvary and the focus on academic excellence, spiritual growth, community service, athletic achievement and the creative arts. We can't imagine sending our children anywhere else.

“The love of Christ is the first thing I noticed when our oldest daughter visited the kindergarten room. It is shared by everyone from the teachers to the children. She walked into a big welcoming hug and I melted. Our children have attended Calvary for over 14 years. I feel that they receive a quality, Christ centered education. They are well prepared for high school and their faith walk in life.”

I love attending Calvary Lutheran. It is a warm and welcoming place where I have made many lifelong friends, including our pastor. Pastor B is a straight forward, kind, caring and compassionate leader who cares deeply about his congregation. I also like the fact that during communion we still come to the alter and kneel instead of just walking past.
