Let's connect during the week.
Christian faith formation is a lifelong journey. That's why we are doing our best to make it easy for you to connect with God and others in authentic relationships throughout the week. No one person is an island and the faith journey is not meant to be done alone, so are working together to make it easier for you to join a faith community in this COVID season and beyond.
This summer kids 4 years old through the 5th grade are invited to discover God’s greatest treasure is not diamonds or gold but them! Camp Treasured is a week of faith discoveries, memorable music, and epic adventures that help kids encounter Jesus in a special way!
Soon we will be enrolling kids for the weeks of June 21-25 and June 28-July 2. We will have morning (9-12) and afternoon (1-4) sessions. Kids will experience the week in a pod of the same children each day. We will host a pod of up to 14 kids in grades 1-5 in both sessions. We will also host a pod of 8-10, four- and five-year-olds each morning session only. Our COVID protocols will be in place. So, pick a week and a session and join the adventure! For more information contact Jeff Moeller.
Faith Formation for Youth
Middle School Ministries (Grades 6-8)
Our ministry to middle schoolers and their families includes resourcing parents, confirmation, retreats, small group Bible studies, community service, and youth gatherings. Contact our Director of Children, Youth, and Family Ministries, Jeff Moeller for more information and the Zoom link!
GAME NIGHT Rocks!
Join the experience at 7 PM most every Monday night! Students in grades 6-12 connect, compete, and encourage each other in their faith journey. Each night we share a life-verse from scripture, play a game, or 2, and pray. To connect with us on Monday nights contact Jeff Moeller our Director of Children, Youth, and Family Ministry.
Calvary Lutheran Church’s confirmation program at Calvary seeks to encourage students to explore their relationship with God, who adopted them into his family when they were baptized, loved them so much that he sent his Son, Jesus into the world to die on a cross for their salvation and Together with the Holy Spirit, families, and our church community, we nurture and equip young men & women for a lifelong journey of faith, and to change the world around them.
Midweek Services During Lent
Second-year students and their parents get to do the readings at our Lenten services Wednesday nights at 7 PM. This is our tradition. Some of you, I know, did this last year because we had a very small second-year class last year. Readings will be sent out the week before along with directions. We plan to use Holden Evening Prayer and the readings come in the middle of the service followed by a short homily and then discussion questions in breakout rooms.
If you know of conflicts beforehand, please contact Teresa so that she can let the teacher know and they can plan accordingly.

Faith Formation of Adults
LIFE Circles is a small group ministry, that connects 3-8 people to each other and to God's word. We are starting several sermon-based groups in addition to our current affinity-based groups. Our Life Circles meet in seasons (periods of 6 weeks) though some may meet continuously.
LIFE Circles provide a context for people to connect with one another and to build relationships. They provide an opportunity to contemplate faith, experience community, and engage in the Great Commission of making disciples for Jesus Christ. Circles connect weekly, or biweekly, and engage at different levels or intensities, the spiritual disciplines of worship, Bible study, prayer, fellowship, and service. Our LIFE Circles serve the mission of the church, mobilize people for ministry, and are a component of our faith transformation process.
