Colors

Serve at Calvary and in the community.

Make a difference in the world that God made by volunteering at any time. We have opportunities for you to join us in service in-person and on-campus throughout the week (while doing so safely under Covid-19 restrictions). You can also serve the church and community online on the weekend and throughout the week. We are able to offer you one-on-one coaching or small group training, while adhering to safe physical distancing guidelines of online via video conferencing.

Happening Now

God’s Work. Our Hands. Service Weekend, September 10-11.

Scheduled for Sept. 10-11, 2022 (Launch Weekend), “God’s work. Our hands.” Weekend is an opportunity to celebrate who we are as Calvary Lutheran Church and who we are as a part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) — one church, freed in Christ to love and serve our neighbor. 

The COVID-19 pandemic brought about significant changes to our world, and we continue to witness how communities across the globe are experiencing its impact. But one thing is certain— we continue to be church together. 

These acts of service allow us to explore one of our most basic Lutheran convictions: All of life in Jesus Christ — every act of service, in every daily calling, in every corner of life — flows freely from a living, daring confidence in God’s grace.  

You do this kind of work every day —loving your neighbors and making your community a better place.  

On Launch Weekend, we will come together as a congregation to be God’s hands in our community.  Watch for details in the coming weeks about projects available for every age and how to sign up!
