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.
Children 3 years old through 6th grade are invited to Zoom with their friends this Sunday from 9:00 -9:30 AM. Through video and active hands-on activities, kids will encounter Jesus and the Bible each Sunday!

The Parable of the Sower- Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23
God’s Word grows in the good soil of our hearts. This parable is all about a farmer who sowed, or planted seeds in different types of soil—and all of the different things that happened to those seeds once they were planted.
The Parable of the Wise & Foolish Builder- Luke 6:46-49
God is with us in life's storms. His love is a strong foundation on which to build our lives. This parable shows kids the wisdom of building on the firm foundation of God's love and His word.
The Widow's Offering-Mark 12:38-44
A rich man made a big deal out of how much money he was putting into the offering box. A widow gave everything she had to help others. Jesus pointed this out to his disciples and encouraged them to follow the example of the widow.

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.
